The Columbus Blue Jackets started off their own NHL trading deadline Monday by waiving defenseman Grant Clitsome, who was claimed by the Winnipeg Jets.

Clitsome was not bitter, saying on his Twitter account “Thanks for all the support. Wish all the best to the Blue Jackets. Can’t thank them enough for the opportunity.”

The 26 -year-old from Sudbury, Ontario has a contract of $1.25-million through the 2012-2013 season.

In 51 games this season for Columbus, Clitsome scored four goals, had 14 points and minus-6 rating.

The 5’11, 208-pounder was drafted in the ninth-round, the 271st overall pick by the CBJ in the 2004 NHL Draft.

He played his college hockey at Clarkson University of the ECAC.

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS Post-Game Summary: Anaheim 5 Columbus 3

 

Anaheim Ducks Right Wing Corey Perry is a Blue Jackets killer!

In Sunday night’s fourth and final meeting of the season between the two teams, Perry scored his 24, 25 and 26 goals of the season and a hat trick in leading the Ducks to a 5-3 win over the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena before a crowd of 14,043.

The NHL’s MVP from last season, scored his second hat trick of the season (both against Columbus) in a one month span.

He scored just :46 seconds into the game and added another before the end of the first period to put the Ducks up 2-0.

His third goal came in the second period and he almost had a fourth goal in the third, but CBJ goalie Steve Mason stopped him cold with a good save.

In January, the 6’3, 203-pound Perry scored a hat trick at the Honda Center against Columbus. He is the first player to score a hat trick against Columbus in the same season.

Central Division leaders Chicago doubles score on CBJ, 6-3

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Chicago Blackhawks came into Thursday night’s game with the Blue Jackets on a three-game skid.

It’s hard to believe that this team was having problems, because they’re the best team in the Central Division.

They got well real quick, because they were playing the Central’s worst team, Columbus.

Jackets-killer Jonathan Toews scored two goals and added an assist, and Chicago’s horrible power-play scored twice as well in a 6-3 win over the struggling Jackets.

The Blackhawks dominated play so much during the game, that it had a 27-9 shot lead after 29 minutes of play.

Chicago, had lost to St. Louis 3-0 on Tuesday, entered the game last in the NHL in power-play production, scoring only 5 goals in 57 opportunities. They went on to go 2-for-3 against the Blue Jackets penalty kill which is one of the worst in the NHL.

The Blackhawks also received goals from Andrew Brunette, Steve Montador, Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa. Brent Seabrook and Nick Leddy chipped in with two assists apiece.

An announced crowd of 15,048, saw a few bright spots in the loss for Columbus. Grant Clitsome lit the lamp twice, a career-high; recently acquired Mark Letestu scored a goal and star player Rick Nash earned his 500th career NHL point. Fedor Tyutin garnered two assists.

The Jackets continue to frustrate themselves and their fans with the worst record in the NHL at 2-12-1 and 5 points.

Jackets reward Clitsome with two-year contract

Grant Clitsome was one of the bright spots and surprising players for the Columbus Blue Jackets last season.

He spent six seasons developing his talents to get to the NHL.

The 26-year-old Clitsome has been rewarded for his solid play and hard work. The Jackets have given him a two-year, $2.5 million contract. He’ll earn $1.1 million next season and $1.4 million in the 2013-14 season.

The defenseman could’ve become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but decided to remain once he found out the Jackets wanted him to stay.

The Blue Jackets called up Clitsome on January 11, 2011 and he quickly earned the trust of head coach Scott Arniel. His average ice time was 21 minutes, 16 seconds which was second to Fedor Tyutin. Before this season, he had only played in 11 NHL games.

In 31 games, Clitsome scored four goals, dished out 15 assists and had a plus-2 rating and 16 penalty minutes.

Clitsome was a ninth-round draft pick (#271 overall) of the Blue Jackets in 2004. That was the final year that the NHL draft went past seven rounds.

Clitsome spent four seasons at Clarkson University before entering the NHL.

Blackhawks escape Jackets in shootout, 4-3

Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Scott Arniel told the media during the post-game press conference , when asked about his team playing 18 games past regulation into overtime or a shootout, what does that say about his team, how close are they to the playoffs or how far they are away. His answer was “we’re getting closer, we can work on being able to win those games by working on the skills necessary to do so.”
