UPDATED: Winnipeg Jets jerseys will not ship with NHL 12 (but available via update); Lemieux, Howe round out Legends

Update: An image of the Winnipeg Jets in NHL 12 surfaced today, showing the Jets wearing black jerseys which seem to match the generic NHL jerseys that were given out at this year’s NHL draft to their draft picks.



The Winnipeg Jets, formerly the Atlanta Thrashers, still have not unveiled their jerseys for the upcoming season due to concerns of counterfeiting. Therefore, there has been some uncertainty to the status of the Jets jerseys in regards to EA Sports NHL 12. Zack Cooper, host of Got Game on Sportsnet Radio – FAN 590, was in attendance at today’s Microsoft’s X11 Canada Showcase for games which are coming soon to the Xbox 360 platform. Members of the NHL 12 development team were in attendance, and he tweeted the following tidbit from the event.

“They (EA) are not expecting the Jets jerseys to ship with the game. EA said they’d likely be available in the first roster update.”

So there you have it. The new Winnipeg Jets jerseys won’t be available when the game ships on September 13th, but will likely be available alongside the first roster update. Traditionally, the first roster update happens within a week or so of the first night of the NHL regular season, so expect to see the jerseys available in early October. Hopefully EA will have the Jets’ retro jerseys in place as a suitable replacement until the update is released.

In other NHL 12 news, EA has announced the complete roster of Legends that will be included in the game and has released this trailer for the unveiling of the final two players.

Complete NHL 12 Legends Lineup: Wayne Gretzky, Ray Bourque, Chris Chelios, Steve Yzerman, Borje Salming, Jeremy Roenick, Patrick Roy, Mario Lemieux and Gordie Howe

  1. thats dumb the jersey should be unveiled at the rookie  Tournament sep 11 or maybe even before so why would  we have to wait for the first update they should just put it in  like wtf or atleast for download  the day of the game release  cuz its gunna be out by then 

  2. Stupid.  So stupid.  Hate not having release day roster updates.  When I put my game in for the first time I generally start a “Be a Pro” or a “Franchise Mode” as I’m sure most people also do.  But because there is no roster update and their is a team with no real jerseys, we all save our games that day, and lock in the missing pieces we would expect in the game since even when you get the update your game was saved prior to you getting the update.  FIX THIS.  Customer satisfaction should be the goal EA.
