  • Print

Scratch Grant Clitsome’s name off the list of Winnipeg Jets players who were scheduled to become unrestricted free agents this week.

The Jets announced late Tuesday night they have agreed to terms with the 28-year-old defenceman, who played in 44 games last season and picked up 16 points on four goals and 12 assists. His plus-10 rating was also the highest among all Jets defencemen. The Jets did not disclose the terms and value of the contract, but multiple media outlets are saying it is a three-year extension worth $6.2 million.

Originally drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2004, the Clarkson University product was scooped up off waivers by the Jets in 2012. Both Clitsome and Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will speak to the media Wednesday morning.

His signing leaves the Jets with six unrestricted free agents, although Cheveldayoff said last week contract talks were progressing with goaltender Al Montoya. The others are Nik Antropov, Kyle Wellwood, Ron Hainsey, Antti Miettinen and Mike Santorelli.
