If you are referring to the font used for sweater numbers and player names, track down a member named eriq_jaffe... there are links to a web page that will get you what you need. As far as vertically arching the player names, you're on your own there - simple geometry is the easiest way to go.
If you are referring to the font used by the Wings for their wordmark, it's a modified font whose name escapes me. For better (more eyes, more design experts) help, try this in the "General Design" section, in the "Name That Font" thread...

In order for the Mets' run of 12 losses in 17 games to mean something, the Phillies still had to win 13 of 17.

Yeah, that added a whole lot.
I once had a car but I crashed it. I once had a guitar but I smashed it. I once, wait where am I going with this?

Bookman Swash on the wordmark (you have to buy it, though there's a passable freeware "BrookmanSwash" out there, but it's almost too swashy and it gets in the way), a thinner varsity block for names, which are arched.
English uses the possessive clitic -'s to mark possession. When it is used after a plural noun ending in -s it is reduced to an apostrophe ('). Thus, bus's means 'that which belongs to a bus', but buses' means 'that which belongs to a number of buses'. However, traditionally, certain classical, but not modern, names that end in -s also use the apostrophe-only clitic to mark the possessive. This is the case with Jesus, where the possessive is Jesus'. The two words, with and without an apostrophe, are pronounced exactly the same. Only the context determines whether the possessive is being used or not in speech. However, Jesus's, the form that would be dictated by strict application of the standard rule, is also seen today.

If it is ever needed, the plural (belonging to a number of Jesuses) would be Jesuses'.
