The Neverending Saga

Share

Gary Bettman portrait by Luc Janz

1996 was the last year Winnipeg had a professional hockey team. Their Jets had been moved south to Arizona where no one cared about hockey. Though demoralizing for many Winnipeggers, folks gradually accepted it. Only a few crazies still held on to the idea that Winnipeg could have a team again one day. Then it happened. 15 years later, the Jets came back.

Sam Hagenlocher wrote a children's story for adults about one of the most heartwarming stories in sports.

We said our emotional good-byes... there was much to ponder... so we all sat down together and watched the third period...
