    • Jets' Clitsome Likely Sidelined For Start Of Camp

      News: Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff said Wednesday that Grant Clitsome (back) is "probably not likely" to skate when training camp begins next week, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
      Analysis: Grant Clitsome has required season-ending back surgeries in each of the last two campaigns, and is still recovering from his latest procedure. Since the 30-year-old last suited up for a game on Jan. 3, the Jets have bolstered their defense by moving Dustin Byfuglien back over from forward and by acquiring Tyler Myers. Those additions may make Clitsome at risk of losing a roster spot once he's healthy enough to play again, but for now, it's uncertain when that time may even come. The Jets will probably see how Clitsome progresses in the next couple of weeks before offering a timetable for his return.
    • Jets' Clitsome To Meet With Doctor

      News: Grant Clitsome (back) will visit a surgeon in Los Angeles later this week, Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
      Analysis: Grant Clitsome underwent back surgery in January and is projected to miss the remainder of the season. The meeting with the doctor who performed his procedure should provide more clarity on how far he's come along in his recovery to this point. The blueliner has appeared in just 56 games over the last two seasons combined.
    • Jets' Clitsome (Upper Body) Out Indefinitely

      News: Grant Clitsome had surgery Wednesday to address an upper-body injury and is out indefinitely.
      Analysis: Grant Clitsome was originally expected to miss a week or two due to an undisclosed injury, but it looks like that timetable has now been extended substantially. The blueliner likely won't have a clearer return date until he's able to resume skating. His absence is a much bigger blow to his club than fantasy owners, as Clitsome has only managed to tally four points through 24 games with the Jets this season.
    • Jets Place Clitsome (Upper Body) On IR

      News: Grant Clitsome (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
      Analysis: The move doesn't qualify as much of a surprise after Grant Clitsome was ruled out indefinitely upon undergoing a surgical procedure Wednesday. Zach Bogosian was activated from IR in a corresponding move.
    • Jets' Clitsome Expected To Miss One-To-Two Weeks

      News: Grant Clitsome is listed as day-to-day but is expected to miss a week or two due to an undisclosed injury.
      Analysis: Grant Clitsome's injury likely originated in Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, though it just became evident Monday. The announcement of an injury was foreshadowed be the recall of Keaton Ellerby on Monday, who, along with Julien Brouillette, figures to see some ice time in Clitsome's absence.
    • Jets Activate Clitsome

      News: Grant Clitsome (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.
      Analysis: Grant Clitsome didn't skate with a regular pairing during the team's morning session, so despite his activation, he could be a healthy scratch for the Jets on Saturday. Despite the absences of Clitsome and top-four blueliners Toby Enstrom and Zach Bogosian, the Jets have been playing quality hockey of late, which may make coach Paul Maurice reluctant to bring Clitsome back into the fold right away.
    • Jets Place Clitsome On Injured Reserve

      News: The Jets placed Grant Clitsome (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday.
      Analysis: Grant Clitsome will be out another week and a half, so the Jets placed him on injured reserve to open up a roster spot for Patrice Cormier.
    • Jets Rule Clitsome Out For Two Weeks

      News: Grant Clitsome (undisclosed) has been ruled out for two weeks, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
      Analysis: While Grant Clitsome (one point in 16 games) isn't exactly an essential component to the Jets' success, his absence couldn't come at a more inconvenient time, as Tobias Enstrom (lower body) and Zach Bogosian (lower body) were both ruled out with long-term injuries Thursday. The Jets recalled Julien Brouillette from AHL St. John's to temporarily restore some depth on defense, while Dustin Byfuglien could also move over from forward to help out on the blue line.
    • Jets' Clitsome To Sit Wednesday

      News: Grant Clitsome is dealing with an undisclosed injury and won't play Wednesday against the Oilers, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
      Analysis: Despite missing Tuesday's practice, Grant Clitsome was expected to suit up Wednesday, but that never materialized. The Jets recalled Ben Chiarot from AHL St. John's on Tuesday, and he'll slot in for Clitsome, forming a pair with Zach Bogosian.
    • 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.
