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.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
