Our next show will focus on the Winnipeg Jets rich jersey history..

Below are the Goals for Kids patch. the Jets were the only team to wear a charity patch on the jerseys.  The the early years of Jets crests, they used a process called chain stitching.  A beautiful technique still used by the Chicago Blackhawks on their crest today.

Finally, in 1976, the Jets offered to wear the Montreal 1976 Olympic patch, which had been originally offered to the Quebec Nordiques, who opted not to wear the crest.
