Jets, Oilers unveil alumni rosters, jerseys for 2016 Heritage Classic

Recommended Posts


The Winnipeg Jets are gearing up to host the 2016 Heritage Classic.


A large crowd was on hand at the city's famous Portage and Main downtown intersection as the Jets and Edmonton Oilers unveiled the rosters and jerseys for the alumni and regular-season games to be played outdoors on Oct. 22 and 23, respectively, at Investors Group Field.


The Oilers alumni roster was announced by Kevin Lowe, who will suit up for the game, and includes a host of Hall of Fame players and other notables.

  • Dave Semenko, Wayne Gretzky (Captain), Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson, Paul Coffey, Grant Fuhr, Jari Kurri, Kelly Buchberger, Randy Gregg, Charlie Huddy, Ken Linseman, B.J. MacDonald, Craig MacTavish, Marty McSorley, Bill Ranford, Dwayne Roloson, Craig Simpson, Ryan Smyth, Esa Tikkanen


The Jets roster is replete with legends from the original incarnation of the franchise.

  • Thomas Steen, Dave Babych, Laurie Boschman, Mike Eagles, Dave Ellett, Bob Essensa, Mike Ford, Kris King, Jim Kyte, Morris Lukowich, Moe Mantha, Mario Marois, Andrew McBain, Brian Mullen, Teppo Numminen, Teemu Selanne, Darrin Shannon, Doug Smail, Tim Watters, Ron Wilson


The Oilers will rock an old-school orange jersey for both games.




And the Jets will don a true throwback of their own.




"Hockey fans welcome every opportunity to see their favorite NHL teams face off outdoors," said Brian Jennings, NHL CMO and executive vice president. "This year's Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic will offer Jets, Oilers and all hockey fans a great mix of nostalgia with the alumni game and an amazing showcase of today's top talent in the NHL Heritage Classic."


The Heritage Classic is one of four outdoor games on the 2016-17 NHL schedule.
