On the 2nd Day of Jetsmas, the Franchise Gave to Us…..

2 days remain in our 12 Days of Jetsmas, and that brings us to my ode to former Jets defenseman, Adam Pardy, who last wore the #2 for the Jets – wait, hold on – I’m being told that isn’t the theme for the number 2… Oh, we’re going back to recap the Jets playoff…

The 12 Days Of Jetsmas: 10 Jets Defensemen

On the 3rd day of Jetsmas, we’re talking defensemen. The ten that the Jets have played to be more specific which is strange because we’re counting down to Christmas instead of counting up but whatever. The whole “12 Days Of Christmas” song is a little strange anyway and we’d much rather have Byfuglien and Trouba…

The 12 Days Of Jetsmas: #11, Rick Rypien

Continuing on with our 12 days of Jetsmas brings us to number 11, while there have been a handful of Jets 1.0 players to don the number 11, there’s only 1 player who wore it for the current iteration of the Jets, and he never took to the ice. Rick Rypien
