Jets Release Jersey Schedule for 2023-24
With 41 games set to be played at Canada Life Centre during the 2023-24 NHL season, the Winnipeg Jets and their fans now know exactly what uniform will be worn on each and every given night... with the exception of February 27. But we will get to that later.
On Saturday, the club announced its game-day jersey rotation, identifying which of its three home sweaters will be worn for each date of the 41-game home schedule.

As expected - and enforced by NHL governance - the standard Jets 2.0 blue home sweaters will be used roughly two-thirds of the time. With 26 of 41 games being played in the standard 'homes', the Jets will also see three games to which the club will debut its brand-new, 2023-24 alternate sweaters, 'the Forty-Eight'.
That new alternate will be used on three home occasions: December 4 vs. Carolina, January 27 vs. Toronto, and April 1 vs. Los Angeles.
Of the remaining 12 home games, 11 will be played in the navy blue Heritage jerseys that the team has used as alternates the past season.
As for the final home game? Well, either True North made an error in its release, or it has something very special planned for its February 27 contest against the St. Louis Blues, as that game didn't fall into either of the three jersey categories listed within its release.
Winnipeg will open its 2023-24 regular season on the road in Calgary, to which it will wear its white sweaters for the first of 41 away games on the regular season schedule. That game can be viewed live on Sportsnet at 9:00 PM central time. The team returns home to Canada Life Centre for Saturday's afternoon home opener at 3:00 PM.
