The 1994–95 Winnipeg Jets season was the team's 23rd season in Winnipeg and their 16th season in the NHL. Despite missing the playoffs for the second year in a row, the Jets featured the second-best forward line in the NHL that season, as Keith Tkachuk, Teemu Selänne and Alexei Zhamnov scored a collective 74 goals in 48 games. This total was second only to the Philadelphia Flyers' top-line total of 80 (scored collectively by the "Legion of Doom").

Regular season[edit]

Two major highlights of the regular season occurred in April. On April 1, 1995, Alexei Zhamnov scored five goals in the Jets' 7-7 tie with Los Angeles Kings. Six days later, the Jets established a modern-day record by scoring four short-handed goals in a 7-4 win against the Vancouver Canucks.[2]
