If you know an interesting fact about this teams history and would like to share it.. click here.

  • The Winnipeg Jets were founded in 1971 being granted one of the founding franchises in the World Hockey Association (WHA).
  • While the Winnipeg Jets were still a member of the WHA, the Jets lured Bobby Hull away from the Chicago Blackhawks offering him a quarter million dollars per season plus a record breaking million dollar signing bonus.
  • In 1979 as the WHA was collapsing the Jets were absorbed into the NHL.
  • In 1992/93 Teemu Selanne has a record breaking rookie season as he smashes the record for goals and points by a rookie scoring 76 goals and 132 points to break the old records held by Mike Bossy.
  • As the NHL expanded in the United States, operating costs and salaries grew rapidly, leaving the Jets unable to afford their key players. The team couldnt compete in such a market and they played their last game on April 28, 1996. The team moved to Phoenix to become the Phoenix Coyotes.
