Grant Clitsome feels comfortable in Winnipeg, but he knows he can't sit back.
He received a three-year deal worth $6.2 million, which is the longest he's ever had, during the summer. "It's kind of a different feeling for me," Clitsome said. "But it's definitely nice. I'm just trying to make sure that I'm not too complacent, and being too happy with it." He spent time as Dustin Byfuglien's defense partner and made strides as a more dependable defensive player. Clitsome posted 16 points and a plus-10 rating in 44 games.
