The official logo of the NHL Winnipeg Jets National Hockey League teamThe Winnipeg Jets
The Jets have returned to Winnipeg! After a fifteen year absence, NHL hockey will be played in the far north once again! The new Jets are members of the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League, as they were for the 2010-11 season, when they were known as the Atlanta Thrashers.

As the Atlanta Thrashers, the team played in Atlanta, Georgia until purchased by True North Sports and Entertainment in 2011. With approval by the NHL Board of Governors, the team was relocated to Winnipeg prior to the 2011–12 NHL season. Following the move, the team adopted the name of Winnipeg's original WHA/NHL team (which moved to Phoenix and became the Coyotes in 1996). The Jets play their home games at the MTS Centre in downtown Winnipeg.

The announcement came in May 2011 - the Winnipeg Jets were returning to the NHL in the 2011-2012 Season. Jubilant fans filled the streets in celebration. Even though fifteen years had passed since Winnipeg’s last NHL team, the bond between the city and its cherished Jets remains as strong as ever.

The Winnipeg Jets were born as part of the World Hockey Association (WHA), a professional league founded in 1972 to advance the game by establishing teams in markets previously overlooked by the NHL (which had dominated the sport in North America since 1917).

The WHA was short-lived. By 1979, the majority of its teams had been dissolved, but its most successful, the Winnipeg Jets, moved to the NHL where it continued to play in Winnipeg until 1996, when it moved to Phoenix and was renamed the Coyotes. Now, enthusiastic fans are eagerly waiting for Winnipeg’s hockey renaissance to take off.

Updating the team’s logo to bring its name into the 21st century was an important part of that revival. The military jet that has been a visual element of the logo since 1972 has been brought to the forefront to highlight Canada’s rich aviation heritage. Shades of military blue and silver are enhanced with a touch of maple leaf red - a telltale sign this team will soar on the wings of true hockey passion.
