Despite a first-round sweep in the playoffs, last year can only be considered a success for the up-and-coming Winnipeg Jets. The young squad made an impression simply by making the postseason, and with that all-important experience behind them, the Jets only figure to be more confident in 2015-16. Andrew Ladd appears prepped to put together another productive season with his aggressive, hard-nose style of play. With star defenseman Jacob Trouba patrolling the blue line and Ondrej Pavelec holding down the crease, goals against will definitely be tough to come by once again as well.

Winnipeg Jets 2015-2016 News and Updates
11/20/15 - The Winnipeg Jets might not have pulled off a win against the Blues Monday evening, but they sure looked better than they did against the Preds on Saturday. Compared to the 7-0 slaughter, losing 3-2 was a bit of a silver lining for the struggling team. “We stuck together as a team for the whole game. We were good, but not good enough,” commented center Bryan Little. Hopefully, the confidence boost along with the support of the hometown crowd will help the Jets to a couple wins this week. They will face the Canucks on Wednesday (Nov. 18) and the Coyotes on Saturday (Nov. 21) at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg.
11/13/15 - It’s been a nasty week for the Winnipeg Jets as they have tried to salvage this 2015-2016 regular season. Tuesday they faced a hard loss to Minnesota with a final score of 5-3. Next they traveled to Dallas to face the Stars but also left defeated 6-3. Then, they let the Predators crush them 7-0 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Many are calling this rock bottom, and the Jets are hopeful that there’s nowhere left to go but up. Despite the disappointing week, Winnipeg is hoping to turn things around with a three-game home stretch. Get your tickets for the Jets vs. the Canucks this Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the MTS Centre. Tickets are on sale now for $67.
11/6/15 - Not many will dispute the fact that the Central Division is the toughest group in the NHL. Going up against perpetual Stanley Cup winners like the Blackhawks and the Wild is no easy feat, but teams like the Winnipeg Jets are holding their own. After a win over the Maple Leafs earlier this week, the Jets got bumped up two places in the division standings and are currently ranked third. The Jets are playing consistent hockey with the help of solid players such as team captain, Andrew Ladd and goaltenders, Ondrej Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson. They will play on their own ice at the MTS Centre this Saturday, Nov. 7, against the Flyers.
10/30/15 - Winnipeg Jets fans caught a glimmer of hope at their second most recent game against the Minnesota Wild last Sunday. It was a high scoring affair that resulted in a thrilling 5 – 4 victory for the Jets. The high from the win was, however, short lived. The Jets went on to lose to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday. Things looked promising in the second period, when both teams were tied at one goal each. The Wild quickly pulled away in the third period, adding three more goals and shutting the Jets out completely, resulting in a 1 – 4 loss. Come support the Jets tonight when they take on the Chicago Blackhawks at home.
10/23/15 - Three weeks into the NHL regular season, and the Winnipeg Jets are faring quite well. Some are wondering, however, if that success is due to the team’s skill or mere luck. While talk of save percentages and shooting inflation is abundant among forecasters and analyzers, the Jets are focusing more on making improvements on the ice. When last season ended, the Jets were 10th in the league for points allowed, but this year has been a different story. Opponents are averaging about 40 shots, and that is what the focus is in the locker room and at practice. Come cheer on the Jets as they welcome Tampa Bay to the MTS Centre this Friday, Oct. 23.
10/16/15 - The Winnipeg Jets managed to get their season back on track on Tuesday night by beating the New York Rangers 4 – 1 on the road. This was a great win for the Jets, who had lost the night before to the New York Islanders 4 – 2. Winnipeg has been on a road trip since the beginning of the season, which makes it even more impressive that they’ve managed to wine three out of four games. They will finally have their season opener at home this Friday when they take on the Calgary Flames. It’s sure to be an exciting matchup at home, so get your ticket now! Prices start at $104.
10/9/15 - The Winnipeg Jets haven’t played in their first 2015-2016 season game quite yet, but they are amped up to take on the Boston Bruins on October 8 for an away game. The Jets were happy with their performance last season when they made it to the playoffs for only the second time in their franchise history. However, the Jets had a very disappointing showing in the playoffs, being swept by the Anaheim Ducks in four games straight. Despite this turn of events, the Jets are aiming to make postseason play and win a game during that time. See them start off their goal when the puck drops for their first home game on October 16.
9/18/15 - After struggling in the league for years, the Winnipeg Jets brought their fans’ hopes back to life last season when they made it into the playoffs for the first time in a long while. This year, the team is hoping to repeat the appearance and are relying on goalkeepers Ondrej Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson to lead the team to an even more successful year. Hutchinson will likely take a back seat to Pavelec, but that doesn’t mean he won’t play his part. “I just want to help the team win games when I do get a chance to play,” he recently said. Preseason play starts next week, and Winnipeg is set to take on Minnesota on Tuesday (Sept. 22). Join the crowd at the MTS Centre as your Jets hit the ice by purchasing your tickets today!
4/29/15 - They had to fight hard to scrape into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but the Winnipeg Jets finally managed to punch their ticket during the home stretch of the regular season. Unfortunately, the Jets had the misfortune of running into the buzz saw that was the Anaheim Ducks in the first round, and were swept in four games. The loss eliminated Winnipeg from postseason contention and brought an abrupt halt to a year which saw the Jets amass a respectable record of 82-43-26. Winnipeg held leads in Games 2 and 3 of their first round series, but ultimately the Ducks were too much to handle offensively, rallying on both occasions to maintain control from wire to wire. The Jets will now look to the 2016 season for another crack at the ultimate prize.
4/22/15 - The Winnipeg Jets need to get a win if they want to stay in the playoffs. After three games against the Ducks in the Divisional Semifinals, the Jets have yet to win. In the first meeting, the Jets were ahead 2-1 at the end of the second period. However, the Ducks scored three in the final period to draw ahead and win. The second match up was similar, with the Jets ahead 1-0 until the Ducks scored twice in the third period. The final match up went into overtime, with the Ducks coming back from behind to tie up the game and then win in overtime. The Jets will need to not just get ahead but also protect their lead in their fourth match to get the chance at a fifth game, with tickets available starting at $18.
4/17/15 - The Winnipeg Jets beat the Flames 5-1 in their final game of the regular season. Both teams changed up their lineups to rest some of the regular starters in preparation for the playoffs. Calgary got on the board in the first minute of play. However, just seconds later Drew Stafford scored to even up the game. After a scoreless second period, the Jets started the third period off with a bang with a goal by Michael Frolik. Later in the period, Lee Stempniak, Adam Lowry, and Matt Halischuk added points to the board. Prior to the game, the Jets had secured the second wild card of the Western Conference. They play the Anaheim Ducks for the divisional semifinals, with their first game in Anaheim on April 16, with tickets starting at $19.
4/3/15 - The Winnipeg Jets have picked possibly the worst time of the season to not win – not that there’s ever a good time for a losing streak. The Jets have lost their last two and are at the moment tied on points with defending Stanley Cup holders Los Angeles, who are trying to sneak in the back door to the postseason.
3/19/15 - With a pair of key wins this week, the Winnipeg Jets have taken hold of the second wild card spot in the Western Conference. After rallying in the third period to defeat Tampa Bay 2-1 on Saturday, the Jets pummeled the San Jose Sharks to maintain their edge in the standings. Winnipeg led wire-to-wire on their home ice Tuesday night, opening a four-goal lead in the final period on Blake Wheeler’s second score of the night and ultimately walking away with a 5-2 victory. The postseason race remains highly competitive, and the Jets will need to keep up their winning ways in order to punch their ticket to the first round. Tickets are available for Winnipeg’s final visit to Edmonton this season, as they take on the Oilers on Monday night. Get in starting at $16!
3/6/15 - After spending much of the season holding down fourth place in the Central Division behind the division-leading troika of Nashville, St. Louis and Chicago, the Winnipeg Jets have slipped a spot. The Jets have been passed by a resurgent Minnesota team and are now in fifth place in the Central, tied with Vancouver on points in the overall conference standings.
2/20/15 - After a rough start to the month, the Winnipeg Jets have turned things around somewhat, winning four of their last six. Although the Jets fell in their last outing, a 5-1 loss to Washington, their last two wins have both come via the shootout route, against Edmonton and Detroit.
2/13/15 - After snapping a six-game losing streak last week, the Winnipeg Jets strung together a pair of victories, only to fall to division rival (and division leader) Nashville this week. At the moment, the Jets are still in the middle of the Central Division pack, five points ahead of Minnesota and four behind Chicago.
2/6/15 - In the Central Division race, the Winnipeg Jets appear to be falling back. Stuck on 61 points because of a five game losing streak, the Jets’ lead over their fifth-place division rival, Colorado, has narrowed to six points, while standing just three points behind third-place Chicago.
1/30/15 - Even though the Winnipeg Jets are fourth in the Central Division, they are just two points behind Chicago and St. Louis, who are tied for second. The Jets did not start the second half of the season the right way, though, losing in their first outing since the All-Star Game.
12/19/14 - After losing three of their last four games – two of those losses coming to Pacific Division leading Anaheim – the Winnipeg Jets scored a win over Buffalo earlier in the week. The Jets are in the thick of the Central Division race, standing in fourth place behind Chicago, St. Louis and Nashville.
12/12/14 - The big news out of Winnipeg comes off the rink for the Jets. A report on ESPN.com mentions the CFL Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ stadium, Canad Inns Stadium, as a potential site for a Heritage Classic outdoor game in the 2015-16 season.
12/5/14 - Since moving to Manitoba from Atlanta for the 2011-12 season, the Winnipeg Jets have yet to qualify for the postseason. However, that could well change this season, as the Jets have started December off right with a win, and are fourth in the Central Division.
11/14/14 - After division leaders Nashville, the Winnipeg Jets are making people take noticed in the Central Division. A strong defense (2.0 goals against average, 3rd in the league) has gone a long way to help the Jets to a 7-1-2 record over their last 10 games.
11/7/14 - If it seems like most of the NHL's Canadian teams are experiencing early season success -- well, they are. One of them is the Winnipeg Jets, who, in the very tightly packed Central Division of the Western Conference where first and last place are separated by only six points, are just two points back of division leading Nashville.
10/31/14 - The Winnipeg Jets pulled out a win of 4-3 in a nail-biter game against the New York Islanders Tuesday, Oct. 28. The Islanders game them a run for their money but the Jets stood their ground and hung on for the win. The Jets have won back-to-back games for the first time this season and improved 4-5. Captain Andrew Ladd scored his second shot of the game at 3:31 into the third period off a rebound. The game was a slow start for the Jets when the Islanders' Brock Nelson scored only a minute into the game, but the Jets came back to tie it then brought on a two-goal lead and had their best third period of the season. You will not want to miss the next game of the season when the Jets take on the Nashville Predators at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4, at the MTS Centre with tickets starting at $129.
Immediately after the Winnipeg Jets cleaned slate and dismissed head coach Claude Noel in favor of Paul Maurice, the MTS Centre squad showed the league and legions of fans just how much potential they had stored up. The new head coach went 8-2 in his first 10 games and inspired a team that took up residence in the NHL's cellar for the first 40-odd games of the season. The Jets made moves this summer on roster as well: parting ways with Olli Jokinen, Devin Setoguchi and Al Montoya, while adding TJ Galiardi and Mathieu Perreault. Now, in Maurice’s first full season at the helm, there’s no telling what heights this team will reach in the upcoming 2014-2015 season. Get your Winnipeg Jets tickets now!
The Jets kick off their 82-game slate on the road against the Arizona Coyotes on Oct. 9. They’ll continue their tough opening road trip with a visit to San Jose (Oct. 11) and Los Angles (Oct. 12). The Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings will return the favor and visit MTS Centre on Mar. 1. Winnipeg will play their first home game of the year when the Nashville Predators come to town on Oct. 17. Keep the tradition going when the New York Islanders play MTS Centre on Dec. 31 for a New Year’s Eve hockey spectacular. Don’t miss out on two rivalry games when the Toronto Maple Leafs descend upon Winnipeg (Jan. 3), followed by the Montreal Canadiens (Mar. 26), with Winnipeg Jets tickets this year.
4/9/14 – The Jets were eliminated from the NHL playoffs last Thursday with a 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It’s been seven seasons since the Jets (then Thrashers) made their one and only playoff appearance. Winnipeg has 80 points (35-35-10) and just two games left in the season – Thursday night at home against Boston and Friday night in Calgary. Winnipeg isn’t the only Canadian team to miss the postseason this season; Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver (first time in six years) have also been eliminated.
4/3/14 – Finish Flash, aka Teemu Selanne, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Jets in overtime Monday night. Fans at the Honda Center were not only treated to a win, but also a poster of Selanne in both a Anaheim and Winnipeg jersey that featured the impressive details of his rookie 1992-93 season with the original Jets. Following Monday’s loss, the Winnipeg Jets won the battle in Phoenix with a 2-1 shootout over the Coyotes. Next up, Winnipeg will return home tonight, following a five-game road trip, to face the Penguins (min. $142).
3/28/14 – The Jets will finish up their five-game road trip Monday. Splitting their first two with a loss to Dallas and a win on a power play goal versus San Jose, they’ll take on the Kings next in LA. Nine points behind the Phoenix Coyotes for the final wild card spot, the Jets will likely miss the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the third straight season since relocating from Atlanta. Which means you only have three more chances to see them at MTS Centre this season – 4/3 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (avg. $241), 4/7 vs. Minnesota Wild (avg. $130), and 4/10 vs. Boston Bruins (avg. $174).
3/19/14 – Winnipeg remains a (semi) bubble team, six points behind eighth ranked Phoenix in the Western Conference. After a 7-2 downing of the Dallas Stars Saturday and an offensive showcase, it seemed as if the Jets were ready to make a final push at a playoff spot. Colorado (avg. $80) and Carolina (avg. $168) are on the Winnipeg Jets schedule this week at MTS Centre as the final two home games this month. If the Jets want to pull off a playoff berth, they’ll have to play well on the road; seven of their final twelve with be played away.
3/10/14 - The Winnipeg Jets will continue their push for their first playoff berth since returning to the North when they take on the Colorado Avalanche tonight. The hopefuls look to snap their longest losing streak (0-2-1) under new head coach Paul Maurice. Now five points back of the Dallas Stars for the second wild card berth in the Western Conference, Maurice and Co. need to record two points to stay in the playoff picture. The Jets return to home ice Wednesday when they take on Vancouver (avg. $103). Last week, Winnipeg signed defenseman Mark Stuart to a four-year, $10.5 million contract extension.
3/4/14 – The Jets are flying high since their return from the Olympic break, winning in shootout against Phoenix and getting the regulation time victory over Nashville. Up next, Winnipeg will return home for three straight - New York Islanders (avg. $67), Los Angeles Kings (avg. $121), and Ottawa Senators ($167). Winnipeg is currently two points behind eighth ranked Dallas; if the Jets can pull up to the eighth spot for a playoff berth, it would be the team’s first postseason appearance since returning to Winnipeg and first since the 2006-07 season (Atlanta).
2/26/14 - The Winnipeg Jets welcomed back four of their players from Sochi, and the entire team is anxious to get back to business as the NHL resumes play. This past Sunday, much to the delight of local fans, the Winnipeg Jets held a special outdoor practice on the frozen-over Assiniboine River. Under new coach Paul Maurice, the Jets were 9-3-1, and Winnipeg is now just two points behind the final playoff position with 22 games left to go. The Jets square off against the Phoenix Coyotes for their first game after break; tickets start at $156 for tomorrow night's game at MTS Centre.
2/21/14 – The Jets returned to the ice for practice Wednesday with a healthy Evander Kane (hand), Jim Slater (sports hernia) and Matt Halischuk(upper body), all back from the injury list. Welcome back the trio, four Olympians — forwards Olli Jokinen, Blake Wheeler and Michael Frolik, and netminder Ondrej Pavelec – and teammates Feb 27 as they take on the Phoenix Coyotes at MTS Centre. With 22 games left, the Winnipeg Jets are just 2 points behind 8th place Dallas. In contention for a wild card spot, a playoff berth would be the franchises’ first (and only) since the 2006-07 season when the team was in Atlanta.
2/3/14 – Thank you Michael Frolik! The Jets’ right wing scored the game winner Sunday against the Canadiens to push the final score to 2-1. In Winnipeg’s first road game of four before the Olympic break, the Jets earned their second straight win. The journey continues as the Winnipeg Jets make their way to Carolina, Washington, and St. Louis before the weekend concludes. Now two games above .500 for the first time since the start of the season, Winnipeg is within four points of the final playoff spot.
1/30/14 – Winnipeg will play their final game on home ice before the Olympic break tomorrow night at MTS Centre. The matchup against the Vancouver Canucks is averaging $193 with limited seats still available. Will the Jets recent coaching change continue to reap positive results (won six of eight since Paul Maurice replaced Claude Noel) for the squad? A win Friday would break the Canucks four game winning streak in the series and give the Jets confidence as they fight for the final Western Conference playoff spot.
The Winnipeg Jets are no longer part of the Southeast Division. The NHL realignment sent the Jets from the East to the West. A move to the Central Division should allow for some new geographical rivalries. One must-see NHL game this season on the Winnipeg Jets schedule is Winnipeg Jets vs. Phoenix Coyotes (former Jets) on January 13.
As part of the Southeast Division, the Jets (what an appropriate name) rack up many miles to play their Divisional opponents; in fact, they lead the Eastern Conference in total miles traveled this season. With the shortened NHL season, it becomes even more important to win on the road — something the Jets have not been able to do well in the past. Lucky for Jets hockey fans who like to travel or may be displaced, Jets away tickets are just $109, about one-third the cost of Winnipeg Jets tickets at MTS Centre.
Jets tickets are in such high demand that when the team began selling Winnipeg season tickets in 2011 (in preparation for their move), they sold out minutes after going on sale to the general public. Winnipeg has embraced the teams return from Atlanta and it seems as if the NHL made the right decision in moving the team. Winnipeg Jets tickets were the most expensive in the League averaging $342 prior to the season's start. Behind the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Winnipeg Jets saw the largest percentage increase in the price of tickets since last year (+83%).
The Winnipeg Jets schedule may be tough but if the team can overcome some inconsistencies on the road, they still have a chance to win the Southeast Division. The Jets currently sit 2 points ahead of the Carolina Hurricanes and are in the Division lead.
