Jets' Clitsome Gets Assist In First Appearance

News: Grant Clitsome made his season debut for the Jets on Tuesday versus the Hurricanes, recording an assist in his 15:24 of action.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome had been a healthy scratch for the Jets' first five games, but his performance Tuesday may be enough to get him more regular run in the lineup. In addition to his offensive exploits, Clitsome was active on his own end against Carolina, accumulating four hits.

Jets' Clitsome Likely Out For Opener

News: It appears Grant Clitsome will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's season opener against the Coyotes, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: After seeing his 2013-14 season end early due to back surgery in December, Grant Clitsome is healthy again, but he'll have to wake just a little bit longer before returning to game action. Prior to undergoing surgery, Clitsome was in the midst of the best season of his career, as he notched 12 points in 32 games and was on track to reach the triple digits in both hits and blocks. Now 29, Clitsome could see his minutes load lightened this season in an effort to preserve him for the long haul. He'll give way to Adam Pardy on defense Thursday.

Jets' Clitsome Done For Season

News: Grant Clitsome has undergone season-ending back surgery, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Prior to his injury, Grant Clitsome recorded 12 points in 32 contests for the Jets. The 28-year-old blueliner is under contract with the team through the 2015-16 season.

Jets' Clitsome Slow To Make Progress

News: Coach Claude Noel said Grant Clitsome (back) "hasn't been able to do much" since landing on injured reserve, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome has been dealing with back issues for about three weeks now, but it seems he still doesn't have a concrete timetable for his return. There's been no news about him practicing even as a non-contact participant, suggesting the defenseman isn't slated to return anytime soon.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Dealing With Back Issue

News: Grant Clitsome's undisclosed injury is a back ailment, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: The Jets went ahead and moved Grant Clitsome to IR on Thursday to afford him further recovery time while opening up a roster spot. He has yet to resume skating and it's not certain when he might return from IR.

Grant Clitsome, D, WPG

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Placed On IR

News: Grant Clitsome (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome has already missed more than a week with the still unspecified injury, so he'll be eligible to return at any time, but clearly he's not ready to go Friday against Minnesota. Julian Melchiori was recalled to provide some depth along the blue line.

Grant Clitsome, D, WPG

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Out Friday

News: Grant Clitsome (undisclosed) will not play Friday vs. the Panthers.
Analysis: Coach Claude Noel said that Grant Clitsome "wasn't feeling great," but didn't elaborate further on why the defenseman was absent from morning skate. It would seem whatever injury he's concealing is probably minor, so for now, fantasy owners can anticipate having Clitsome back in their lineups Sunday vs. the Canucks.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Tallies Three Points

News: Grant Clitsome scored a goal and added two assists Sunday against the Sharks. He was also a plus-3.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome is not a points contributor, so this game is a fluke. Plus, even with his plus-3 night, he is a minus-8 on the season.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Pots First

News: Grant Clitsome broke through with his first point of the year Tuesday, scoring a goal in a shootout loss to Washington.
Analysis: With just 56 points in 155 career NHL games, Grant Clitsome's utility is limited to deep fantasy formats. He's not even of much use for PIMs, hits or blocks.

10/7/2013

Grant Clitsome, D, WPG

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Returns Sunday

News: Grant Clitsome played 15:15 and was minus-1 with four penalty minutes against the Ducks on Sunday.
Analysis: After missing the first two games of the season, Grant Clitsome's return bumped Adam Pardy from the roster prior to Sunday's game. Clitsome quietly chipped in 16 points in 44 games for Winnipeg in the lockout-shortened campaign last season.

Grant Clitsome, D, WPG

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Healthy

News: Grant Clitsome (lower body) will play Sunday against the Ducks, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: The move means Grant Clitsome will be activated off IR, so the jets will need to make room on the active roster for him. Defenseman Adam Pardy is the best bet to be sent down to AHL St. John's at this point, since he has already cleared waivers. Clitsome registered four goals and 12 assists in 44 games last season with the Jets.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Present At Morning Skate

News: Grant Clitsome (lower body) was on the ice for Sunday's morning skate, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Reports earlier this week suggested that the blueliner may be available for Sunday's contest with the Ducks, and that seems likely now that he took the morning skate. He'll still need to be activated from IR before the game, and fellow defenseman Adam Pardy will likely be sent down to AHL St. John's to make room.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Could Play Sunday

News: Coach Claude Noel said Grant Clitsome (lower body) could be available Sunday, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Though he remains on injured reserve, Grant Clitsome's injury is viewed as day-to-day and there's some growing optimism he'll be back in the fold in short order. Clitsome would likely need to practice Saturday and take part in morning skate Sunday to convince Noel he's ready for game action.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Doesn't Skate Thursday

News: Grant Clitsome (lower body) did not skate Thursday, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome's failure to return to practice Thursday suggests he won't play Friday against Los Angeles. He's on injured reserve and there's no clear timetable for when he might return.

Grant Clitsome

Jets Place Clitsome On IR

News: The Jets placed Grant Clitsome (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday.
Analysis: The Jets have yet to announce what is ailing Grant Clitsome, but he will not open the year on the Jets' roster. Clitsome was added to IR retroactive to Sept. 26, so though it remains to be seen how long he will be out, he will be eligible to be activated as early as Thursday.

Jets Re-Sign Defenseman Clitsome

News: Grant Clitsome re-signed with the Jets on a three-year, $6.2 million deal Tuesday, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome proved to be a reliable cog of the Jets' defensive unit last season, accruing 16 points and a plus-10 rating in 44 games. The contract should only further solidify Clitsome's spot on the Jets' second defensive pairing.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Notches Two Helpers

News: Citsome posted two assists and finished with a plus-2 rating in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Islanders on Saturday.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome had a golden opportunity to win the game for the Jets in overtime, clanking a point shot off of the post. For fantasy purposes, Clitsome is no more than a plug-and-play option unless you're in a head-to-head league and find yourself behind in the plus/minus category, as he's a plus-10 this season.

Jets' Clitsome Notches Goal

News: Grant Clitsome scored the Jets' first goal of the game in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: It's good to see Grant Clitsome back in the lineup for the Jets as he had been out earlier in the week with an eye injury. The goal he scored on Saturday gives him three on the year to go with nine assists, a respectable total for a defenseman after 36 games played. That said, Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom are the team's go-to guys on the back end, so Clitsome is more of a spot start fantasy wise if at all.

Jets' Clitsome Doubtful For Tuesday

News: Grant Clitsome (eye) is not expected to play Tuesday against the Islanders, the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome got hit in the left eye with a stick Monday night during the Jets' 4-2 loss to the Rangers. Head coach Claude Noel said the defenseman's eye is swollen shut, but there doesn't appear to be any serious damage, and the team is considering Clitsome day-to-day for now.

Jets' Clitsome (Face) Will Not Return Monday

News: Grant Clitsome (face) will not return to Monday's game, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: The stick of teammate Alex Burmistrov caught Grant Clitsome underneath the visor, and he left with an apparent injury to his face or eye. Consider him day-to-day until the Jets elaborate on the ailment.

Jets' Clitsome Exits Monday's Game

News: Grant Clitsome left Monday's game against the Rangers after Alex Burmistrov's stick hit him under the visor.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome's status for the remainder of Monday's game is unclear. If he can't return, consider the 27-year-old day-to-day until more information becomes available.

Jets' Clitsome Notches Another Point

News: Grant Clitsome picked up his sixth point of the season and finished with a plus-1 rating in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome now has points in four straight games, with a goal, three assists and a plus-4 rating over that span. It seems like he's benefited the most from the injury to Tobias Enstrom, and he just may be worth a short-term pickup, particularly in deeper leagues.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Extends Point Streak To Three In Win Over Rangers

News: Grant Clitsome managed an assist and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers
Analysis: Grant Clitsome now has points in three straight games after managing just two points in 13 previous games. The Jets have dealt with a ton of injuries on the blueline this year so Clitsome's production is a bonus. He's not a fantasy factor when the blueline is healthy, so don't get too excited about his recent streak until he demonstrates more consistency.

Grant Clitsome

Jets' Clitsome Solid In Loss To Flyers Saturday

News: Grant Clitsome picked up an assist to go with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: Grant Clitsome was one of five Jets players to finish with a plus rating in the game. That said, he's only dressed in eight games this season and will generally see regular time only when the injury bug hits the blue line. Clitsome has never played more than 51 games in a season during his five-year career and it's because he's a depth player, making his fantasy value slim to none regardless of league size.

Jets' Clitsome Adds Three Shots In Loss

News: Grant Clitsome recorded three shots on net in his second game as a Jet Thursday night in Vancouver. The journeyman defender now has 78 on the season.
Analysis: The recent acquisition from the Blue Jackets has averaged about 19 and a half minutes of ice-time in his two games as a Jet, significantly more than what he had become accustomed to in Columbus.
