The 1990–91 Winnipeg Jets season was the Jet's nineteenth season, twelfth in the NHL. The Jets placed fifth in the Smythe, and did not qualify for the playoffs.

Offseason[edit]

The Winnipeg Jets made a blockbuster trade at the 1990 NHL Entry Draft on June 15, 1990, when the Jets sent Dale Hawerchuk and their first round draft pick in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft to the Buffalo Sabres for Phil Housley, Scott Arniel, Jeff Parker and the Sabres first round draft pick in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Hawerchuk, who had been with the Jets since the 1981-82 season, was coming off a season with 26 goals and 81 points, both career lows, in 79 games. Housley, a defenseman, had 21 goals and 81 points in 80 games for the Sabres in the 1989-90 season, while Arniel had 18 goals and 32 points in 79 games with Buffalo. Arniel had previously played with the Jets for five seasons, from 1981-1986.

At the 1990 NHL Entry Draft, the team selected Keith Tkachuk from Malden Catholic Panthers, a high school in Massachusetts. Another notable pick by Winnipeg was Alex Zhamnov in the fourth round.

On September 6, 1990, the Jets traded away Laurie Boschman to the New Jersey Devils for Bob Brooke. Boschman had been with Winnipeg since the 1982-83 season, and was coming off a 10 goal, 27 point season in 1989-90. Brooke had eight goals and 18 points in 35 games with the New Jersey Devils, however, on September 7, 1990, he announced his retirement. The Jets then received the Devils fifth round draft pick in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft as compensation.

On September 30, 1990, Winnipeg traded Peter Taglianetti to the Minnesota North Stars for future considerations. Taglianetti had three goals and nine points in 49 games with the Jets in 1989-90.

The Jets changed their primary logo and uniforms for the 1990-91 season, however, the team stayed with the same colours of blue, red and white.
