The Winnipeg Jets will travel to Helsinki, Finland later this year for a pair of regular-season games.
The Jets will face the Florida Panthers at the 2018 NHL Global Series November 1-2.
The hockey club has a history with Finland, with four Finnish-born players having played for the Jets since their return in 2011, including Joel Armia and Patrik Laine. The first inception of Winnipeg’s team included Teemu Selanne and Teppo Numminen.
The Jets played three exhibition games in Finland at the NHL International Challenge in September 1994.
