RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Clitsome managed 16 points in 44 games to go with a solid plus-10 rating last year. He definitely stepped up in the absence of Tobias Enstrom last year and demonstrated a marked improvement in his game. With Zach Bogosian's status still up in the air and a newly-inked contract extension with the Jets under his belt, Clitsome could prove to be a serviceable fantasy option for the 2013-14 season, even though his offensive production will be limited with Tobias Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien running the show on the blue line in that department.

2012-13

Clitsome generated some buzz around the Columbus front office in 2010-2011 when he posted an impressive 19 points in 31 games as a second-year pro who had grown accustomed to spending more time in the minors than with the big club. Yet, when he fell far short of that production in 2011-2012, the Blue Jackets released the Ontario native to waivers. Upon being claimed by the Jets, Clitsome did little to silence his doubters, registering just three points over the season's final twelve games. Though his usage in Manitoba was much higher than it was in Ohio, do not expect the 27 year-old to make a large offensive impact in 2012-2013.

2011-12

Clitsome got an extended look in the NHL and more than held his own, putting up a surprising 19 points in 31 games. He'll lose power play time to newcomer James Wisniewski though, so while he'll have a regular spot on the Blue Jackets blue line don't expect him to maintain that scoring pace.

2010-11

Clitsome is a depth defenseman who managed just three points in 11 NHL action last season.

2009-10

Depth defenseman scored 4-15-19 with 74 PIMs in 73 AHL games last season.

2008-09

Clitsome will fight for a spot among the Blue Jackets' top seven defensemen in camp.
