The Winnipeg Jets were one of Vancouver’s fiercest rivals before their relocation to Phoenix in 1996. Having faced each other countless times in the seasons leading up to that catastrophic announcement, the divisional matchups between the Jets and Canucks were always something to look forward to. When Pavel and Teemu entered the league, however, this rivalry evolved into something much greater.
On Feb.7th,1996, the Jets decided to trade Selanne to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks for Chad Kilger and Oleg Tverdovsky. He played on a line with Kariya, which gave both of them many goals
This was the last puck drop and final whistle for the Winnipeg Jets. April 28th/1996 the Detroit Red Wings would defeat the Jets 4-1 to move on to the second round of the playoffs and eliminate the Jets from both the Playoffs, and the NHL. The City of Winnipeg has not recovered & will never be the same until the Jets Fly again…….That Day will come…..
