Super fun weekend in Winnipeg. Who else watched the #HeritageClassic? There are big things happening in Winnipeg. I can't believe 5 years ago Mark Chipman brought the Jets back to Winnipeg and now we are hosting an NHL Heritage Classic. I am so proud to be born here and call this city home. Shoutout to all the Winnipeggers out there ✌🏼️ keep doing your thing!
So when are we hosting the next Heritage Classic?
No, Thank you!
