SCRATCH Grant Clitsome's name off the list of Winnipeg Jets 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.
