It appears Clitsome will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's season opener against the Coyotes, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

After seeing his 2013-14 season end early due to back surgery in December, Clitsome is healthy again, but he'll have to wake just a little bit longer before returning to game action. Prior to undergoing surgery, Clitsome was in the midst of the best season of his career, as he notched 12 points in 32 games and was on track to reach the triple digits in both hits and blocks. Now 29, Clitsome could see his minutes load lightened this season in an effort to preserve him for the long haul. He'll give way to Adam Pardy on defense Thursday.
