New Look for Winnipeg Jets

Last month, the Winnipeg Jets unveiled their new hockey jerseys. The ceremony was staged at the 17 Wing in Winnipeg in front of Dash 8, CF-18 and Hercules airplanes. Four players emerged from the belly of a cargo plane, each wearing the revamped designs.

“It was vitally important to us to honor the rich history of hockey in our city, and fit the era of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) which inspired the primary crest design,” Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said in a statement. “The result is clean, simple and traditional.” The jerseys feature two shades of blue that honor the RCAF — a darker “polar night blue” that’s found on many current airplanes, and a lighter “aviator blue” that recalls the historical colors used.

The Jets took their new hockey jerseys to the ice on October 9th versus the Montreal Canadiens.
