Good afternoon Jets fans, and I can say Jets fans as it’s been reported that TNSE will announce Jets as

the team nickname before the 7th overall selection in a few hours. What isn’t sure yet is if it’ll be

Winnipeg Jets or Manitoba Jets so some suspense still remains.

What we do know is that you’ll continue to receive updates from us here through the entire first round

on our live blog right here. The fun starts at 6PM Central.
