WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets have a plan to deal with the powerhouse Chicago Blackhawks, but encouraging fans to wear helmets to mock Adam Pardy's treatment in the Windy City isn't part of it.
Jets chairman Mark Chipman killed the media stunt the day before the Blackhawks visit the MTS Centre.
Pardy was checked through the glass, one fan stole his helmet and another poured beer on the Jets defenceman Nov. 6 in Chicago.
A Winnipeg radio station was encouraging fans to wear helmets to Thursday night's game when Chicago visits, calling it a "helmet Pardy."
But Chipman says Chicago has handled the incident with class, just as Pardy did when it happened, and no helmets will be allowed.
The helmet-thief has even made a donation to the Jets Foundation, besides issuing an apology.
