Really weird timing on this story, but the St. John's IceCaps have been granted permission by the Department of National Defence as it pertains to the usage of the jet on their jerseys' shoulder patches: "The Department of National Defence is allowing the the IceCaps to use an image of its fighter jets on the team's shoulder patches – even though it wasn't specifically mentioned in DND's agreement with the IceCaps' parent team, the Winnipeg Jets. According to a federal access to information request obtained by CBC News, The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club Limited Partnership contacted DND on Sept. 9, 2011 to request that their farm team affiliate, the IceCaps of St. John's, be permitted to wear their Jets parent logo as a shoulder patch."
