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

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Klatt played his college hockey at the University of Minnesota. Trent 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. Trent 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. Trent 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 Trent signed a free agent contract with the Kings.

During the NHL lockout of 2004-05, Trent served on the NHLPA bargaining committee. However, less than a month before the NHL was to re-start for the 2005-06 season, Trent announced his retirement from the NHL, citing family issues as the reason. Trent Klatt now coaches Bantam A hockey in Grand Rapids, Minnesota along with fellow former NHLer Scot Kleinendorst.
