Winnipeg, Man. / New York, NY / Portland, Ore., September 13, 2018 - The Winnipeg Jets®, the National Hockey League (NHL®) and adidas today unveiled the new adidas adizero NHL third jerseys for the team's 2018-2019 season.
The Jets will wear their new third jersey on 14 occasions during the 2018-19 regular season.
The Jets introduce a new alternate jersey with a classic look inspired by the 1990-96 Winnipeg Jets uniforms and infused with their current color palette. The new wordmark and logo includes a Jets script that draws from a long line of team wordmarks that have incorporated Jets shapes and motion. It is highlighted with the "t" in "Jets" being crossed with the outline of a fighter jet. The wordmark, designed by David Mann, becomes the team's official new wordmark, replacing the one used since the 2011-12 season.
The jersey's contemporary silhouette gives Winnipeg's third a unique look and feel and is the first jersey that the team will wear featuring an aviator blue base. Additional detailing includes the words "We Are True North" emblazoned inside the neckline, the team's call back to their fans who passionately yell "True North" during the Canadian national anthem at each game. The uniform is accented with navy and white striping on sweater's sleeves, hem, and socks.
At the forefront of innovation, design and craftsmanship, the adidas adizero Authentic NHL jersey takes the hockey jersey silhouette to the next level by redefining fit, feel and lightweight construction. The adidas adizero Authentic jersey is lighter, cooler and stronger, featuring adizero lightweight cresting and twill numbers, adidas Clima® technology and Aeroknit detailing, the platinum NHL Shield and an interior fight strap.
The Jets adidas adizero Authentic Pro NHL third jersey will be available online at shop.nhl.com, adidas.com, adidas.CA and all Jets Gear Store locations including its flagship store at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Canada.
