Winnipeg’s defensive corps is about to be fully healthy.

The team activated blue liner Grant Clitsome from injured reserve and sent defenseman Adam Pardy to AHL St. John’s.

Clitsome joins the rest of his Jets teammates on defense and they make up what looks to be a pretty good group. Dustin Byfuglien, Tobias Enstrom, Zach Bogosian, and potential star-in-the-making Jacob Trouba lead the way.

Clitsome’s return means the team has everyone they were counting on to be part of the big club on the roster now. With the Jets at 2-0-0 to start the season, the good news just improves the already good vibes with the team.
