The Winnipeg Jets entered the NHL in 1979-1980 after beginning life in the World Hockey Association in 1972. While the team retained its name and logo for the shift to the NHL it updated the uniforms, extending the shoulder design down to the sleeve and removing the sleeve stripes entirely. Waist stripes were also changed from three thin stripes to two large ones. The logo on the chest featured “JETS” in white, the “J” doubling as a hockey stick on a blue circle with “WINNIPEG” below in red; above the “J” a red hockey-puck-like circle enclosed a blue jet taking off. The Jets wore this uniform design unchanged until the 1990-1991 season when an entirely new logo and uniform was developed for the club.
