New Winnipeg Jets Jerseys Ready to Take Off

New Winnipeg Jets Jerseys Ready to Take Off

Winnipeg Jets jerseys ImageWith the NHL preseason just a few weeks away, the Winnipeg Jets 2.0 have finally unveiled their jerseys. And it looks like the Chinese bootleggers were very close to the real thing.

The team revealed their new hockey sweaters this morning in Winnipeg, against a fitting backdrop of fighter jets. Home jerseys are dominated by a dark Polar Night Blue, which is used on Canadian Air Force planes. Away jerseys are done in a light Aviator Blue, which has been used in the past by the Air Force's flag. Both jerseys have the team's main logo on the front and secondary logos on the shoulder pads.

The highly anticipated jerseys are predicted to be some of the hottest in hockey. The Jets fan base reaches far beyond Winnipeg, with big-time fans residing across Canada and around the globe. Outside of Atlanta, the Jets' return to Winnipeg is the feel-good story of the NHL off-season.

The launch of the jerseys also means that Upper Deck and Panini will be hard at work to get the new images into their upcoming hockey card projects. Upper Deck went as far as publicly pointing out that the slow unveiling of the jerseys was creating some delays in getting the most up-to-date cards done.

Jersey pre-sales launch today through the team's "Jet Gear" stores and  their website. Pre-orders done directly through the team have the option of getting an exclusive inaugural season patch that the team will wear during half of their games this season. A separate patch will be on the team's opening night jerseys on October 9 when the Jets start their season against the Montreal Canadiens.

Authentic jerseys will arrive in stores in early October, while replica jerseys will be available a couple of weeks later.
