Jets' Clitsome injured, will not return
Jets defenseman Grant Clitsome will not return to Monday's game against the New York Rangers after being hit near his eye with an errant stick

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Grant Clitsome will not return to Monday's game against the New York Rangers after being hit near his eye with an errant stick.

Clitsome was cut by teammate Alex Burmistrov's stick early in the first period. Rangers forward Brian Boyle was trying to skate around Burmistrov and as he did, he turned Burmistrov's body and stick, which caught Clitsome under his visor.
