The injury was suffered in the team's December 17, 2013 meeting with the Buffalo Sabres which they would go on to lose 4-2.
In thirty-two regular season appearances this year, Clitsome registered twelve points (2G, 10A) ranking him fourth among Jets defencemen.
The Clarkson University grad will make his return in 2014-15 for the second year of his three-year contract slated to pay him an additional $4MM USD.
