Winnipeg Jets Make “Heritage” Look Their New Third Uniform

The Winnipeg Jets did something very good today.

Announced via a Tweet, the Jets today confirmed they would be promoting their blue throwback-inspired uniforms to third jersey status. This design was originally worn for their outdoor Heritage Classic tilt against the Calgary Flames in 2019 and then for two more (indoor) games during that 2019-20 season.

Based off of the look of the World Hockey Association’s Winnipeg Jets franchise of the late 1970s, the jersey is blue and features a red collar with white/red/white striping on each sleeve and around the waist. The chest crest uses era-authentic chain stitching (awesome) and is the same logo of the WHA Jets (later used by the NHL’s first Winnipeg Jets team up until 1990).

Since teams can only have one “third” uniform at a time, I can safely presume this means their “Aviator Blue” set with the scripted “Jets” mark across the chest has made its way to the great jersey closet in the sky after just three seasons.
