Jets set to open NHL regular season vs Ottawa at home

While listening to TSN Radio 1290 today, a very interesting ad ran for “Countdown to Game On” – and it was all about the Winnipeg Jets returning to the ice at the MTS Centre on Saturday, January 19 hosting the Ottawa Senators. While there have been many sites out there reporting the speculated start to the season, it would seem that either the official broadcaster of the Winnipeg Jets has an inside track, or they’re making a gamble.

If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on the inside track. According to Bettman, the 2012/13 NHL Winnipeg Jets schedule will be released “instantaneously” after the NHLPA ratifies the new CBA – which is said to start tomorrow and wrap up this Saturday, January 12.

Join us on the Jets Hockey Podcast on on Monday at 8:00 CT as we’ll have a look over some of the games the Jets are set to play plus a deeper dive in to the return of our beloved Winnipeg Jets.
