It’s the battle of Dave versus Dale in the second round of the JetsNation Fan Favorite Tournament.
Dale to the surprise of pretty much nobody breezed through his first round match against Phil Housley which seems apropos as Hawerchuk made a career of making defensemen look rather silly.
Back at it with the #NHLJets Fan Favourite Tournament today.. We have a pair of hockey HoFers doing battle. Who is your favourite?

We’ve also noted just how popular Dave has been in Winnipeg, especially after the NHL’s return to the city since 2011 where it seems he has not only been an ambassador for the club, but always rumored to be joining the club in some official position.
Dale’s opponent in this round is also a defenseman who got through a relatively close match in the first round. Dave Ellett managed to outlast one of the original Jets going back to the WHA days in Morris Lukowich.
We stay in the #NHLJets 1.0 side of the bracket for our next Fan Favorite matchup. One of the original Jets takes on the man who scored one of the most famous goals in Winnipeg NHL history.. Who ya got?

And honestly, while Dave might not be able to top Ducky, we at least have another chance to post a playoff goal we still can’t get enough. It’s likely what got him through the first round.
TIME TO VOTE!
Who gets your nod in this second round clash?
Another second round matchup in the #NHLJets Fan Favorite Tournament and this one could be a bit lopsided..Who ya got?
