Winnipeg Heritage Preview

I know outdoor game concepts are usually reserved for Saturdays but this one couldn't wait. Yesterday the NHL announced the 2016 NHL Heritage Classic will see the Winnipeg Jets hosting the Edmonton Oilers in October.

Rob Siergiej wasted no time in mocking up a uniform set for the event. The jerseys are based on what the clubs wore in 1972 when they originally made their WHA debuts. In fact, this is what Jets chairman Mark Chipman has said to expect. Should be a great looking match-up!

And as a bonus, Rob also put together this set, which is also inspired by the teams' WHA days.
