Jets alumnus Ab McDonald poses with a feature case on his career along with daughter Cindy and great-grandson William in the Manitoba: Heart of Hockey exhibit.

Members of the Winnipeg Jets alumni and friends had the opportunity to get an exclusive first look at the Manitoba Museum Hockey: Stories Behind our Passion exhibit at a VIP event the day before the official opening. Ab McDonald, Gerard McDonald and Bob Fitchner were all on hand to help open the exhibit, which tells the story of hockey in Canada through artifacts, including some contributed by the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose.

Part of the larger exhibition is the Manitoba: Heart of Hockey display that features key players and moments in history that have made Manitobans so hockey-crazy. Manitoban and Jets alumnus Ab McDonald (WHA 1972-74) has his very own feature case as part of the display, that includes a look at his 14-year NHL career through artifacts and memorabilia, including pieces that celebrate four career Stanley Cup wins with the Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Blackhawks.
