BennyJets.jpg

Benny was the mascot of the original Winnipeg Jets, and today is the secondary mascot of the current incarnation of the Winnipeg Jets. He was named in honour of both Ben Hatskin, the first owner of the Jets, and Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets." He wore a B on the front of his jersey, in the spot where a C for captain or A for alternate captain would otherwise go. Initially he was retired in 1996, when the original Jets moved to Arizona. He would reappear after his retirement in the 2016 NHL Heritage Classic, and has since served as the secondary mascot of the current Winnipeg Jets, alongside Mick E. Moose. His current jersey is the one the Jets used during the 2016 NHL Heritage Classic, where, again, he made his return.
