The 2019–20 Winnipeg Jets season was the 21st season for the National Hockey League franchise that was created on June 25, 1997, and the ninth in Winnipeg, Manitoba, since the franchise moved from Atlanta prior to the start of the 2011–12 NHL season.[1]

The season was suspended by the league officials on March 12, 2020, after other professional and collegiate sports organizations did as well because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.[2][3] On May 26, the NHL regular season was officially declared over with the remaining games being cancelled.[4] The Jets advanced to the playoffs and faced the Calgary Flames in the qualifying round, losing in a four-game series.[5]

The Jets lost their first game of the season 6–4 to the New York Rangers on October 3.[6][7] The Jets struggled in the opening month of October, having a 6–7–0 record with 12 points out of a possible 26 to start the season.
