The Winnipeg Jets are an NHL team that plays in the Central Division of the Western Conference. The team plays their home games at Bell MTS Place located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The history of the Jets is a little confusing because there was an original Winnipeg Jets that played from 1972 to 1996 in the NHL. The original Jets’ best player was Bobby Hull, who led the team in most games played, points and goals scored. One of Hull’s teammates that was constantly setting him up with assists was Swedish player, Ulf Nilsson. Nilsson led the original Jets franchise in career assists. That organization moved to Phoenix, Arizona and is now the Coyotes.
The current Winnipeg Jets began their run in 2011 when the Atlanta Thrashers moved. The Atlanta Thrashers were granted as an expansion team in 1997 and played their first season in the 1990-200 NHL season. The team spent 12 years in Atlanta in which they only qualified for the playoffs once. Due to an inability to draw fans and win games, the team moved to Canada to play in Winnipeg. In 2015, the Jets made the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since relocating back to Winnipeg but were swept by the Anaheim Ducks in the first round. Then after a few years missing the playoffs the Jets once again made the in the 2017-18 NHL season. When the Jets beat the Wild in a playoff game, they were winning the first playoff game in the history of the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise. The Jets ended going all the way to the Western Conference Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights. The Golden Knights defeated the Jets in six games, but the Jets proved that they have a bright future. Led by captain Blake Wheeler along with alternate captains Mark Scheifele and Dustin Byfuglien feature a competitive roster that looks to make noise in the Stanley Cup playoffs in coming years.
