Up until Tuesday, gear rumors in Winnipeg had been pretty silent.. The new Winnipeg Jets jerseys will not be unveiled until September, and other than that, not much was known about the look and feel of the Jets new gear. Thanks to Blake Wheeler, we now have a sneak peek at the Winnipeg Jets hockey pants that will be worn this season. The navy blue Warrior Pants look amazing, and feature the Jets script logo on the bottom of the right leg.
Wheeler also said he received his new Warrior gloves with the Jets color scheme, but unfortunately, they aren’t in the picture. Judging by the colors, my guess is that the gloves will be just as great looking as the pants.
The new Winnipeg Jets jerseys are rumored to be officially unveiled, and first worn, at the prospects tournament in Penticton, B.C. The Jets, Flames, Canucks, Oilers and Sharks will all be present at the tournament, with games beginning on September 11th. The Winnipeg Jets prospects will play their first game with the new jerseys on September 12th.
I gotta be honest, I really wouldn’t mind picking up a pro-stock pair of those new Blake Wheeler Winnipeg Jets hockey pants. The look is growing on me, and hopefully the jerseys can hold up to the high expectations already being set.
What are your thoughts on the new Winnipeg Jets hockey pants? Want a pair already?
