Whiteout parties will be back in Winnipeg starting next weekend, as the Jets’ first-round playoff series against the Vegas Golden Knights comes to Winnipeg for games 3 and 4.

The Jets announced the full schedule for the series on Friday night, after the return of the downtown whiteout parties was announced earlier in the day.

As previously announced, the best-of-seven series will start Tuesday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with Game 2 there on Thursday.

The series will come to Winnipeg’s Canada Life Centre for Game 3 on Saturday, April 22 at 3 p.m. CT, followed by Game 4 at home on Monday, April 24 at 8:30 p.m., the Jets announced Friday.
