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 had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
