Trent Thomas Klatt (born January 30, 1971) is a retired American professional ice hockey right winger who played 14 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Minnesota North Stars, Dallas Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings.

Playing career[edit]

Klatt played his college hockey at the University of Minnesota. He was drafted in the fourth round of the 1989 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals. He was traded on June 21, 1991 with Steve Maltais to the North Stars for Shawn Chambers. Klatt played four and a half years with the Stars and was traded to the Flyers in December 1995. It was in Philadelphia that Klatt enjoyed his finest offensive season in 1996–97 scoring 24 goals with 21 assists. On October 19, 1998, Klatt was traded to the Canucks for a draft pick. Klatt ended up playing five seasons with Vancouver, where he was perhaps best known for playing on a line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin in the twins' first three NHL seasons. During the 2003 offseason, Klatt signed a free agent contract with the Kings.

During the NHL lockout of 2004–05, Klatt served on the NHLPA bargaining committee. However, less than a month before the NHL was to restart for the 2005–06 season, Klatt announced his retirement from the NHL, citing family issues as the reason. Klatt coached Bantam A hockey in Grand Rapids, Minnesota along with fellow former NHL player Scot Kleinendorst.[citation needed]. Klatt is currently a scout for the New York Islanders[1] where he has assumed responsibility for running the Islanders' draft table following the dismissal of former Islanders Asst. GM Ryan Jankowski.[2]
