During last Saturday's annual fan fest hosted by the Winnipeg Jets, the team unveiled a new jersey the team will be wearing during the 2023-24 year. The jersey is meant to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force, which will be this upcoming April of 2024.

The Jets' uniform is a modern adaption of the uniform worn by the Ottawa RCAF Flyers in 1948, a team that represented Canada at the Winter Olympics that year, winning a gold medal.

"It is a great honour and privilege for True North and the Jets to be able to take part in celebrating the RCAF's centennial,» said Mark Chipman, Governor & Executive Chairman of the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club and True North Sports + Entertainment in the press release. «We have been grateful to wear our pride and appreciation for our country's military, literally over our hearts and on our sleeves, over the past 12 years through the emblem of our Winnipeg Jets. We are humbled to further share our appreciation for the selfless service of the men and women working and fighting for our country through our RCAF Flyers-inspired specialty jersey for the upcoming season."

The jersey features a main powder blue colour along with red shoulder highlights and darker blue accents. Along with the jersey, the team will wear brown gloves and navy blue helmets and pants, for a more vintage touch.


Winnipeg will wear their new jerseys three time throughout the upcoming season. The first time they'll be seen on the ice is December 4th against the Carolina Hurricanes, followed by January 27th against the Toronto Maple Leafs. They'll then wear the uniforms a third and final time on April 1st, the 100th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force, against the Los Angeles Kings.
