The Winnipeg Jets were a professional hockey team in the NHL from 1972 – 1996. The team was forced to relocate to Phoenix, Arizona that year due to the economic downturn though hockey in the great white North still thrives.

A new plan for a polar bear exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo was unveiled this month with plans for a 10 acre park housing up yo six polar bears.
