After viewing some of our previous fan photos, a pencil artist named Jeremy Bresciani contacted us to show off his talents! Upon seeing the artwork he created, we absolutely knew it had to be shared with Jets fans! The detail and combination of past with present is awesome.
The drawing, named Refuelled, represents the return of the NHL to Winnipeg after a 15 year hiatus. Jeremy merged the old Winnipeg Arena (home of the Jets from 1972-1996) with the new MTS Centre (home of the new Winnipeg Jets).
Over the old arena are legends of Jets history: Bobby Hull, Dale Hawerchuk and Teemu Selanne. Over the new MTS Centre are current team stars: Dustin Byfuglien, Andrew Ladd and Evander Kane. The jersey designs the fans are wearing reflect styles worn though Jets history and the numbers on those jerseys represent some of the top players throughout Jets history.
If you are enamored with this piece as we are, then you might be interested in purchasing a print from Jeremy. It just might make a splendid gift for your favorite Jets fan!
