The Tucson Roadrunners have signed forwards Kelly and Kevin Klima to one-year contracts. The 21 year old twins brothers are the son of longtime NHL forward Petr Klima.

Kevin Klima scored 39 goals last season for Chicoutimi of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, while Kelly registered 18 goals.

"Kevin and Kelly are both dynamic forwards that we are excited to be adding to our team," Roadrunners General Manager Steve Sullivan said in a statement.  "Both men exemplified their ability to score in junior hockey and we are proud that they are beginning their professional careers with us."   

The Roadrunners begin their third season in Tucson this October.
