Big Night Coming In Winnipeg

The 2011-2012 NHL season opens this coming weekend, and nowhere is it being more eagerly anticipated than in Winnipeg.   After 15 years without their beloved Jets, Winnipeggers got the news last May the Atlanta Thrashers were being purchased and relocated to the city.   They snapped up 13,000 season tickets, bought the new gear and jerseys when the redesigned Jets logo was released and have eagerly awaited the October 9 clash with the Montreal Canadiens that opens their 2011-2012 season.

The NHL put off realignment until the conclusion of this season, so for the time being the Jets are in the NHL’s Southeast Division 1500 miles away from their nearest division rival.  

But Jets fans don’t care.   They have NHL hockey back and they’ll be rocking the MTS Centre on Sunday and proving how much they missed it.
