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

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
