Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec (31) tosses his game stick into the stands on Saturday.

Winnipeg Jets fans are the loudest in the league, and they may also have the craziest getups.

Some are dressed as fighter jet pilots, one guy comes as Queen Elizabeth II, and it’s fair to say face-paint sales have been brisk since the season started.

And, of course, there’s Dancing Gabe Langlois and the newest fan favourite, Len Kropioski, the 93-year-old Second World War veteran who has found fame saluting the flag during the singing of Oh Canada every game.

Jetcetera caught up with a few of them during the Jets’ last game of the year.
