The first incarnation of the Winnipeg Jets held a practice at Bourkevale Community Centre's outdoor rinks during the 1993-94 season. This picture was recently donated to us and we're happy to now have it in our possession.
Conspicuous in his absence from the picture was Jets forward Teemu Selanne, who was out with an injury at the time, a severed achilles. Winnipeg Sun staffers Ted Wyman and Kevin King helped us identify the players in this pic. If you have any further info or stories about this practice, including the identification of the players, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
