The Winnipeg Jets may have been a little overwhelmed when seeing the support from the city in last season’s playoff appearance. Although a sweep by the Anaheim Ducks wasn’t the most positive result, the team has said all the right things and want to capitalize on the moment the next time.
The path for next time has begun with the NHL season now just over a week old. Most of the same group from last season is returning aside from a trade that involved Evander Kane that brought in Tyler Myers and Drew Stafford. If the beginning of the season is any indication that the roster is meshing well, the Jets are certainly on their way to back-to-back playoff appearances.
The Jets started the season with a six-goal effort against the Boston Bruins for a win and continued along, defeating the New Jersey Devils with a 3-1 final score. They had their first loss of the season at the hands of the New York Islanders and responded with a win the next night over the New York Rangers. It’s a strong 3-1-0 start for the club, who has scored the second most goals in the NHL thus far (15), only trailing the Ottawa Senators.
Blake Wheeler has led the way as far as individual stats, racking up five points (three goals, two assists) in the first four games. Mathieu Perreault ranks second on the team with four points while five players are tied with three points, including second-year standout Nikolaj Ehlers.
With a strong season seemingly in the works, below are a few of the most expensive Winnipeg Jets tickets on the secondary market with information provided by SeatSmart.com.

The next three most expensive games are all against the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks. The second and third most expensive games are at home on April 1st and March 18th, respectively, while the Jets play the Blackhawks on the road on December 11th at the United Center for the fourth most expensive game of the season.
