Winnipeg Jets unveil Home & Away Jerseys

Tuesday, 06.09.2011 / 12:00 PM / News Articles
Winnipeg Jets

True North Sports & Entertainment today proudly unveiled their dark home and white away jerseys for the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club at a ceremony held at 17 Wing in Winnipeg in front of a Dash 8, CF-18, and Hercules airplanes. The Jets will begin play in the National Hockey League in 2011-12 when they open up against the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday, Oct. 9th at 4:00 p.m. at MTS Centre.

The jerseys consist largely of two shades of blue. The primary navy blue base of the home dark jerseys is referred to as “Polar Night Blue” which is found on many of today’s Royal Canadian Air Force planes, including the Dash 8. The lighter, secondary blue is called “Aviator Blue” which is similar to the historical colours by used the RCAF, including traditional RCAF flags and the jerseys of the 1948 RCAF Flyers. The jersey also features the previously unveiled primary logo on the front, with the secondary logo placed on the shoulders of each jersey.

“We wanted to create a look that worked well with Reebok’s modern and innovative “Edge System” uniforms,” said Kevin Cheveldayoff, Executive Vice-President & General Manager of the Winnipeg Jets. “However, it was also vitally important to us to honour the rich history of hockey in our city, and fit the era of the Royal Canadian Air Force which inspired the primary crest design. The result is clean, simple and traditional.”
 
"Our men and women in uniform are delighted by the gracious manner in which the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club has sought to pay tribute to our time-honoured relationship with this city," said Colonel Blaise Frawley, Commander of 17 Wing.  "Today's announcement at our home in Winnipeg certainly lends a boost to our morale."

This season, Winnipeg Jets jerseys will also include a commemorative, opening night patch when they face the Canadiens on Oct. 9th, as well as commemorative inaugural season patch which will be featured during every other game in 2011-2012, Winnipeg’s first since re-joining the National Hockey League.

Fans will be able to pre-order Winnipeg Jets jerseys by logging on to www.winnipegjets.com beginning today at 4:00 p.m. and ordering through “Jets Gear” the authentic team store of the Winnipeg Jets. Besides customizing their own name and number on the jersey, or that of their favorite player, fans who order their jerseys through Jets Gear will also have the exclusive option to include the inaugural season patch. These patches will only be available to fans through Jets Gear.

“Authentic” Pro Weight Winnipeg Jets jerseys will be available in Jets Gear in early October while “Premier” Replica jerseys will be available two to three weeks later.
