For the past week, Winnipeg Jets' fans have collectively anticipated the release of the 2013 NHL schedule. With bated breath we pined for the NHL Board of Governors and NHL Player's Association to ratify the newly fashioned Collective Bargaining Agreement that -- once completed -- would officially spell the return of NHL hockey to thirty fortunate North American cities.
Well Jets' fans, that day has finally come. Earlier tonight the NHL and NHLPA agreed on an Memorandum of Understanding, meaning league becomes fully operational at midnight EST.
Furthermore, the final touches of the lockout-shortened schedule have been released it to the public. Along with that, they have also released their entire NBC Broadcast schedule, which has been reported by our pal, Steve Lepore.
So without further ado, here is the complete Winnipeg Jets schedule for the 2013 season.
