Trick-or-Treat: Here Come the Atlanta Thrashers Dressed Up as Winnipeg Jets

BallardvokounWHO DAT?

The Panthers will celebrate Halloween at the BankAtlantic Center on Monday as children 15 and younger who dress up will get free tickets to the game.

Florida will be playing host to an old friend on Monday although those Atlanta Thrashers – who won 37 of the 68 games between the two over the past decade – may not be too recognizable in their costume. 

Thrash1Yes, the Thrashers are no more as they became the Winnipeg Jets during the offseason.

Because the move was made after the 2010-11 season, the Jets/Thrashers remain in the Southeast Division with the Panthers through this season.

Florida makes its first visit to Winnipeg since March 7, 1996, next week and will visit Manitoba three times this season.
