Winnipeg Jets re-sign defenceman Grant Clitsome

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.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
