The veteran defenseman will earn $1.35 million next season in the final year of a three-year, $4.05 million deal, but could cash in on a respectable raise either in Nashville or anywhere else on the open market.
However, Klein is not concerned about being on the last legs of his contract heading into next season.
"I haven't even thought about it really, obviously family time with the new addition and training," Klein said. "Right now, it is nice to come in here and see all the boys and you don't really think about the contract stuff. They are dealing with a lot in the front office with the young guys and trying to complete the team. I am here for the next year and they know I love it here, so I am sure that we will talk soon.
"I am sure we will talk in the near future, but right now we are just concentrating on the lockout and all of those issues and training for the upcoming season."
In 66 games with the Preds last season, Klein collected four goals, and established new career highs with 17 assists and 21 points.
