True North Announces Team Name is \"Winnipeg Jets\"
True North Sports & Entertainment Limited today announced the name of the new NHL franchise in Winnipeg will be called the “Winnipeg Jets”. The Jets name has a long history in Winnipeg dating back to the World Hockey Association (1972-1979) and the National Hockey League (1979-1996) professional franchises.

“We are thrilled to be using a name that has so much history in our city and means so much to our fans” said Mark Chipman, Chairman of the Board, True North Sports & Entertainment. “Our fans clearly indicated to us the passion they hold for the name since we acquired the franchise.”

Logos and jerseys are still in the process of being developed and will be unveiled at a later date.

True North also announced that, effective immediately, fans can use their new website url for a direct link to their already-launched NHL website.
