In what is being billed as the 'only time in the history of the NHL, the Winnipeg Jets are playing the team formerly known as the Winnipeg Jets tonight in Phoenix. To make matters even more curious Shane Doane who was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets and played in the final game for version 1.0 now plays for the team which moved from Winnipeg but is now facing the Winnipeg Jets. Are you following th...

Peter Tessier: The Good News for Crosby...

In what was a most disappointing game for fans and team alike the Jets were shot down in Glendale with style. The game recap is almost irrelevant at this point, the outcome a small detail in the story that is the Winnipeg Jets. A 'heroes welcome' has come to the ownership group, the management team and most importantly the players, the ones who had almost no choice in where...

John Jaeckel: Mount Q Erupts; Hawks Win

After staking the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-0 first period lead, the Hawks responded to a tirade by head coach Joel Quenneville and took over the game, winning 4-3. Is the glass half empty or half full? Half empty, because like so many times last leason, the Hawks came out flat and uninspired in the first period? Or half full, because, this year, they seem better prepared to snap out of it a...

Jets Return to Chicago

The Winnipeg Jets, with former Hawks Cup hoisters, Ladd and Byfuglien, came to the United Center (the only time these two teams will play, regular season, this year) and fell 4 - 3.  Before we get into the actual play, here’s a couple of side notes. Sean O’Donnell turned 40 years old, one of only four players currently in the NHL. He became the oldest Hawk skater to wear the...

Winnipeg Jets vs. Phoenix Coyotes Preview

By MATT WILSON The history between the Phoenix Coyotes and Winnipeg Jets is very confusing, obviously. The blurred lines will overlap substantially tonight as the “new” Winnipeg Jets play at the home where the real Jets’ team tradition lives on. Bobby Hull is shown in the file photo with his son, Brett, during a ceremony at arena. That’s 1,400 miles...

Winnipeg Jets (0-2-0) at Phoenix Coyotes (1-1-1), 7 p.m. (ET)

The newest incarnation of the Winnipeg Jets are still looking for their first victory of the season. They have a chance of picking up that elusive first win this evening against the franchise that used to call Manitoba home as they visit Phoenix for the Coyotes' home opener at Arena.

Uneven Flow Agains the Jets

Uneven. That's the best way to describe last night's game. The Hawks were down, then up, then sort of in the middle, and then it was all kind of over. Whatever, some interesting numbers from last night. 9:55, 8:00, 7:31: Those are the ice times for Marcus Kruger, Jamal Mayers, and Rusty Olesz, respectively. That's about double what the fourth line could skate last year...

Phoenix Coyotes vs. Winnipeg Jets - game updates

4 p.m.: The Coyotes make their home debut this season against the team that they used to be, the Winnipeg Jets. Should be interesting. Follow along.


For the first time in 16 months, Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien skated on United Center ice last night. This time, they were Winnipeg Jets. The last time they were here was Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals in 2010. It was a 7-4 victory that put them within one victory of hoisting the most famous trophy in all of sports. Ladd recorded an assist while Byfuglien potted a powerplay...

''Unique'' and ''intriguing'' were the words most often uttered as the Coyotes tried to put Saturday's home opener against the Winnipeg Jets into perspective. After all, how often do you get to play the team you used to be?
