This is a place to talk about anything related to Winnipeg's most beloved sports team of all time- the Winnipeg Jets! Discuss Jets memories, Jets history, personal stories, 'where are they now?', will the Jets return?, and much more!

My favorite Jets memory was Game 4 of the Playoff Series with the Edmonton Oilers on April 10, 1990. I was 13, and had bought tickets in the East Side upper deck (Section 44, I believe). I stil remember Dave Ellett's slapshot from the blueline that beat Bill Ranford. I had never seen anyhing like the reaction of the fans. People were hugging each other, and high fives were a-plenty!

Of course who could forget Selanne's record shattering rookie season in 1992-93. This is a video of Selanne breeaking Mike Bossy's 15 year old rookie goal scoring record.

I was a long time season ticket holder. My most vivid memory was the very first white-out. Was that ever an intense game. Goosebumps a'plenty.

Was that 1985 or 1987? There is a minor debate as to when the first whiteout occured. I've heard it was originally created to counter the "C" of Red that Calgary has. I seem to recall it being 1987, as a spoof of Wang Chung's "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" was created.



can you say 'cheesy?' Laughing

I don't remember what year it was. Likely '85... It was introduced to counter the Calgary sea of red. It was very successful and is held up even today as the benchmark of fan white-outs (or red outs, blue...).
