See also

The Winnipeg Jets returned to the NHL in the 2011-12 season, moving from Georgia where they were the Atlanta Thrashers. The Buffalo Sabres visit Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for a New Year’s Eve matchup on Tuesday, December 31st (7 p.m. ET).

The original Winnipeg Jets played in the World Hockey Association from 1972 to 1979, joining the NHL from 1979 to 1996. Following the 1995-96 season, the team moved to Phoenix, Arizona due to financial problems and became the Coyotes.

The Jets play their home games at the MTS Centre, located at 300 Portage Ave. in Manitoba. Opened in November 2004, the arena was home to the American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose from 2004 to 2011; the Moose moved to St. John’s, Newfoundland and became the St. John’s IceCaps. Seating capacity for hockey is just over 15,000.

The arena features a variety of concession stands, including Subway, Tim Hortons and Pizza Pizza. For a sit-down meal, check out The Exchange Restaurant and Beer Market or the Observation Deck Bar and Buffet.

Tickets for the upcoming Sabres/Jets are available through www.ticketmaster.ca; tickets range in price from $72 to $224.50 (plus taxes and fees).
