The Jets return to Winnipeg

City’s new NHL team to be called Winnipeg Jets, sources confirm


National Hockey League sources have told the Canadian Press that Winnipeg’s second NHL team will have the same name that its first did. A formal announcement about the return of the Winnipeg Jets is expected to be made before the franchise makes the seventh overall pick in the NHL entry draft Friday night in Minnesota. But the player Winnipeg chooses with its first draft pick will put on a generic black and grey NHL jersey, rather than a jersey with a Jets logo. Speculation about the name of the new team had run wild, with suggestions ranging from the Falcons to the Moose.
