Phoenix Coyotes D Klesla clears waivers, expected to report to Portland in AHL

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Phoenix Coyotes defenceman Rostislav Klesla has cleared waivers and is expected to report to the team's AHL affiliate in Portland, Maine.

The Coyotes have been struggling defensively the past few weeks and shook up their defence on Tuesday by placing Klesla on waivers. Once one of Phoenix's top defencemen, Klesla had seen his playing time reduced as he laboured inside the blue line.

Klesla missed the first three games of the season with a concussion suffered in preseason and had a goal and two assists in 15 games.

He appeared in 65 games in 2011-12, when the Coyotes reached the Western Conference finals for the first time, and played 38 games during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, scoring two goals with six assists.
