The Winnipeg Jets Are Officially Back

After a few weeks of the True North group debating about what the new Winnipeg team should actually call themselves, it seemed that they finally buckled into fan pressure in bringing back the old Jets moniker after the original team left for Phoenix back in 1996. 

While the design of the jersey and the team colors aren't official yet as their first round draft pick Mark Scheifele donned a standard black NHL jersey, the Winnipeg fans that traveled to Minnesota for the draft consistently chanted Go Jets Go. 

The Jets will eventually debut their jerseys at some point in the summer and the one thing that we know is that those jerseys will fly off the shelves fairly quickly. The Jets fans have shown that they are a diehard group of fans.
