Winnipeg Jets hockey fans can now begin mapping out their television and radio schedules for the winter.
The hockey club, along with its broadcast partner TSN, unveiled their TV schedule for the 2013-14 season today.
All Jets games will be televised this season with their 2013-14 debut – Tuesday, Oct. 1st (9 p.m.) in Edmonton against the Oilers -- once again featured on CBCs Hockey Night in Canada. The Jets will appear on HNIC 14 times, eight at home, six on the road.
