It was an exhilarating double win for the Filipino community at the Jets game Tuesday night!

The Winnipeg team won against the Dallas Stars, as the Jets hosted its first Filipino Heritage Night.

Rain showers did not deter the thousands of Winnipeg Jets fans who turned up early for the team’s game against the Dallas Stars on November 8 at Canada Life Centre.

Palpable too was the extra excitement of the many Filipino fans, old and new, for it is Filipino Heritage Night, hosted for the first time by the Winnipeg Jets.
