There have actually been multiple versions of the Winnipeg Jets, and this one is the most recent. They were founded back in 1997 as the Atlanta Thrashers and would relocate to Winnipeg in May of 2011. Their original team existed in the city until 1996 when they moved to Arizona and became the Phoenix Coyotes.
They both shared the same “Jets” nickname, as the new franchise wanted to honor the old one. Technically the current version of the Jets owned all the trademarks and history of the old version of the franchise. However, the Arizona Coyotes hold the rights to the franchise records, but they do honor many traditions that Winnipeg used.
In their first game back in the city on October 9th, 2011 they went on to lose to the Montreal Canadiens. They would go on to have a rough first season back and would end up finishing the season below the .500 mark with a record of 37-35-10 and missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
It would not get much better for them in year number two, as they would finish the season right at the .500 mark in what would end up being a shortened season. They finished the year with a record of 24-21-3 after playing only forty eight games in the 2012-13 season.
They finished their third year back in Winnipeg with yet another losing record and once again missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2013-14. They finished the season with a record of 37-35-10 after returning to a full eighty two game regular season schedule.
It was during the 2014-15 season that the Jets would make their first Stanley Cup Playoff appearance since returning as they finished the year with a record of 43-26-13 and earned a Wild Card spot in the playoffs. However, they would be swept in the first round by the Anaheim Ducks.
However, it wouldn’t take the Winnipeg Jets long to get back to their losing ways. They would go on to miss the next two Stanley Cup Playoffs. They would go on to finish the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons with a combined record of 75-74-15 and would fail to win above 40 games in either season. After those two disappointing seasons they would go on to make four straight playoff appearances but never really make much noise when it mattered the most.
In 2017-18 the Winnipeg Jets would finish the regular season with a record of 52-20-10 which was their best season since returning in 2011. They would make it all the way to the Western Conference Finals but would eventually lose to expansion franchise Las Vegas. The Golden Knights beat them in five games after they won two playoff series against Minnesota in five games and Nashville in seven games.
In 2018-19, they would finish the year with a record of 47-30-5 but would find themselves ousted in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in six games by the St. Louis Blues. That season would also give them their highest regular season finish since returning, as they finished as runners up in the Central Division.
Due to a shortened season during the 2019–20 campaign thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Winnipeg Jets would make their 3rd straight Stanley Cup Playoff appearance. They finished the shortened regular season with a record of 37-28-6 and snuck into the playoffs thanks to the expanded format. However, they would lose in the qualifying round to the Calgary Flames in four games.
During the 2020-21 season, the National Hockey League rearranged divisions and the Jets exclusively played other Canadian teams all season long. They would also go on to make their 4th straight Stanley Cup playoff appearance during the season. They would finish their second straight shortened season with a record of 30-23-3 in 56 games. Winnipeg would defeat the Edmonton Oilers in Round 1 of the playoffs but go on to lose to the Montréal Canadiens in Round 2.
The 2021-22 season returned to a normal schedule and normal divisions, and it didn’t go well for the Jets. They finished the year with only 39 wins in 82 games and in sixth place of the Central Division. They would snap their four straight playoff appearance streak and end up just having a disappointing season overall.
If you are a fan of the Winnipeg Jets, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Winnipeg Jets have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup in 2023?
