Winnipeg Jets honoured on postage stamps

It's official: the Winnipeg Jets are a team that takes a licking, and keeps on sticking.

Today, Canada Post unveiled a set of three stamps to commemorate the team's inaugural year. Charleswood MP Steven Fletcher, the minister responsible for Canada Post, said designers rushed to get the stamps out, after the announcement of the Jets' return was made too late to include the stamps in its usual design releases.
