Possibly succumbing to fan pressure, the owners of Winnipeg's new NHL franchise took the name of their predecessors who played in the NHL from 1979 until 1996. The new Winnipeg Jets share no history with the original Winnipeg Jets, who moved to Phoenix after the 1995-96 season.
In making its return to the NHL, the Jets wanted to pay homage to the Canadian military, and their new logo is designed after the roundel of the Royal Canadian Air Force.
