The Maple Street Press Winnipeg Jets Annual

MSP Jets Annual 2011-12
MSP Jets Annual 2011-12

With the city of Winnipeg gearing up for the return of the Jets, the crew here at Arctic Ice Hockey has spent the summer getting you familiarized with the roster of the new Jets squad as well as a variety of other topics surrounding the relocation from Atlanta.

While you may have been reading our content online, what went largely unnoticed is that the AIH team and several contributors from The Illegal Curve Radio Show have been crafting content for the first ever Winnipeg Jets Annual by Maple Street Press. The magazine was edited (and task-mastered) by our own Ben Wendorf (Bettman's Nightmare). He even managed to make MY sections look passable.

The magazine is now available for pre-order and will hit newsstands on September 13, 2011. The cost is $9.99 for the commemorative publication, and it runs without advertisements. If you like the content here and at Illegal Curve, you'll love what we've put together for the magazine. As an added bonus, now you can pass on some of your newfound knowledge to those that aren't interweb-savvy, like I'm going to do with my dad.

After the jump is the full table of contents, so you can see what kind of shenanigans we've been up to.
