WINNIPEG - Defenceman Grant Clitsome and the Winnipeg Jets agreed to a new contract on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old played 44 games with the Jets last season, scoring four goals and adding 12 assists with 18 penalty minutes. His plus-10 rating was the best among all of Winnipeg's defencemen.

The Jets did not release any of the deal's terms.

Clitsome, from Gloucester, Ont., has appeared in 149 NHL games between Winnipeg and the Columbus Blue Jackets with 13 goals and 42 assists. He was drafted by Columbus in the ninth round, 271st overall, in the 2004 NHL Draft.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
