The Jets won't allow people to bring their helmets to MTS Centre Thursday to mock a Blackhawks fan.

In a release, chairman of the Jets Hockey Club, said the Jets "in no way endorse this idea" and will not permit fans to wear helmets to the game."

The Chicago Blackhawks organization, for whom we hold a great deal of respect, conducted themselves with the highest degree of professionalism in the wake of the unfortunate incident on November 6th," Chipman said. 

The Jets immediately received apologies from Blackhawks president Stan Bowman and the Chicago fan who stole Pardy's helmet after the Jet crashed through the boards.  

"He is extremely remorseful and has made an unnecessary yet very meaningful donation to the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation," Chipman said.

Chipman said the decision to disavow what was called the #HelmetParty was made for the sake of professionalism.
