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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
