WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Jets haven’t fully digested it yet.

Forty-eight hours ago they were playing in a fanatical, snow-covered cathedral. The return of the storm, properly adorned the #WPGWhiteout, took hold of the National Hockey League.

Millions watched.

Then it was over.

Recently crowned as one of the loudest indoor stadiums on earth, MTS Centre looked anything but a facility hosting competitive theatre Friday afternoon. The ice, boards and glass – gone, along with
the dream of a Stanley Cup in 2015.

From one season to the next, the transformation begins now.

The Jets met with the media one last time today to reflect on the year and to talk about the progression of a team on the rise.

WINNIPEG -- As Winnipeg Jets General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff took to podium in the Matt Frost Media Centre for his post season press conference, he began by speaking like a delighted father.

“I’m really proud,” he said. “I’m really proud of that group for the point that they took it.”

Though full of pride, Cheveldayoff also spoke of the pain that comes with exiting the playoffs in the first round.

“Obviously there’s also a sense of emptiness,” said Cheveldayoff. “You fight so hard to get that opportunity to play in the playoffs, it just makes you that much more appreciative of how hard it is to get there.”

Getting there certainly involved hard work from the team, but also from Cheveldayoff.

One year ago he announced the team had extended coach Paul Maurice’s contract. That was only the first big step the team’s General Manager took in helping the team get as far as it did.

Throughout the season Cheveldayoff made key strategic trades and moves. Another big step he took in helping the team reach the post-season.

Now though, he said it’s time to work even harder and move this team to a place where it’s earning a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on an annual basis.

Paul Maurice

On the fans and atmosphere:

"You're not going to get that on a regular season game, but we get it better than anybody else. I do believe, and I'll say this just as much from talking to people on the street — people that come up to you and talk about your hockey team — that they did appreciate the effort. We're going to try and make things better for next year, beyond our effort. But there was an appreciation there and the fans showed it."

On the series:

"Anaheim was better than we were in this series. Those three games were close, but there's luck in a game, but over a potential series, the better team almost always wins and they were better than we were. But we're a whole hell of a lot better than we were last year at this time."

– Far too soon, the 2014-15 season has officially come to a close here in Winnipeg.

Ryan Kesler scored twice, while Sami Vatanen added an empty-netter late as the Anaheim Ducks fended off a late surge Wednesday night, defeating the Jets 5-2 and, in the process, winning the best-of-seven series 4-0.

Bryan Little and Mark Stuart scored for the Jets, while Ondrej Pavelec made 30 saves in a losing effort.

“It’s disappointing,” Stuart said. “I didn’t want this to end. We had a really good thing going. The guys battled all year to get in and we did some really good things, but weren’t able to get over the hump. I’m proud of how everyone played. We battled to the end. Even though we lost four, it was fun. Our crowd was awesome again, especially at the end when (Anaheim) had it won, they were still cheering for us.”

WINNIPEG – There it was, written in big, bold letters at the head of the dressing room – an all-too-true reminder, of sorts, as the Winnipeg Jets look to stave off elimination in Round 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

‘Why not us?’

‘We stick together as a team!’

Exactly. Why not?

The Jets may trail the best-of-seven series 3-0, but their confidence – ultimately drawn from a year’s worth of tackling hardship – isn’t shaken.

“In a tough spot, you have to focus on the day today and on the things that we can do well,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said.

“We have the opportunity to do that tonight. Be excited about it.”

The MTS Centre was a spectacle on Monday, as playoff hockey returned to Winnipeg. Here is a look, by the numbers, at what made Monday’s whiteout so special.


The hashtag #WPGWhiteout was used an estimated 4,700 times between 8 and 9:00pm CT Monday night, according to


After a 19 year absence, the Stanley Cup Playoffs returned to Winnipeg as the puck was dropped at 8:11 p.m. on Apr. 20, 2015.


The crowd was in a frenzy for most of the game, and according to Sportsnet, the sound peaked at 124 decibels, which is only 2 decibels shy of tying the Guinness Record for the loudest crowd roar in an indoor stadium.


Every seat in the MTS Centre had a white Our Team, Our Tradition towel laid on the backrest before the fans arrived. Check out the time lapse of the setup!


A tweet
that was sent out from the @NHLJets Twitter account, showing a video that was taken during the singing of O Canada, received 1,918 favourites, and was retweeted 1,605 times.


The one and only Don Cherry was in the building for the game. And of course he was wearing a white pinstripe suit.
