WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Jets know what went right, and what went wrong, in their 2016-17 season.
Talented young players and the ability to score goals were the bright spots. Inconsistent defence, goaltending and plenty of injuries hurt. But as the players cleaned out their lockers Sunday after missing the NHL playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons, they were collectively optimistic about the future.
The home of the Winnipeg Jets will see $12 million in improvements this year as True North Sports + Entertainment installs a swath of upgrades at MTS Centre.
New lighting, flooring, ceiling and signage are part of the renovations planned. Work will shift this week from the arena bowl to concourse levels, meant to improve the overall experience for visitors of the downtown arena.
