Jets' Wheeler Takes Maintenance Day

News: Blake Wheeler was held out of Saturday's practice for maintenance purposes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Coach Paul Maurice indicated after the session that Blake Wheeler would be fine to play Sunday against the Flames, so there doesn't seem to be a need for much concern here. The winger may have gotten a bit dinged up after blocking a Shea Weber shot attempt in Friday's game against the Predators, but should be fine after taking a therapy day.

Jets' Wheeler Starts Season With Three Points

News: Blake Wheeler scored twice and added an assist in Winnipeg's 6-2 win over Arizona on Thursday.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler's goals, which were separated by just 15 seconds, both came in a four-goal first period for the Jets. He also assisted on Dustin Byfuglien's goal in the second, totaling three points in 15:42 minutes of ice time. He appears poised to build on his breakout campaign from the 2013-14 season.

Jets' Wheeler Looks To Continue Where He Left Off

News: Blake Wheeler finished the preseason with one goal and one assist in four games played.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler had his strongest season as a pro in 2013-14 and should have decent odds of posting similar offensive numbers this season. He is expected to skate on the second line with Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane this season, which could prove to be a windfall for the trio, given the likelihood that they won't see the toughest matchups every night. Wheeler has played in every game the past two seasons, making him perhaps an even safer fantasy option than forwards with similar average draft positions.

Jets' Wheeler Ends Minor Goal Slump In Finale

News: Blake Wheeler potted his 28th goal of the season in Friday's win over the Flames.
Analysis: It was Blake Wheeler's first goal in five games, but it's not like he was totally useless during that time. He still supplied four assists in that span, and was able to finish the season as the Jets' leading scorer with 69 points.

Analysis: He's been particularly productive in the last 10 games, delivering four goals and seven assists. And eight of those points (three goals, five assists) have come in his last six games. Take advantage.

Jets' Wheeler Finds Twine Saturday

News: Blake Wheeler scored his 26th goal of the season in Saturday's 4-2 road loss to the Kings.
Analysis: The former Bruin continues to light the lamp for the Jets and now has five more goals than his previous career high of 21 set as a rookie in 2008-2009. Combined with his 26 goals, Blake Wheeler's 37 assists give him 63 points -- leaving him just one point shy of his personal best in that category also -- so it's no stretch to say this season has been a roaring success for his owners. Did we mention he has 61 PIM, 203 shots and four game-winning goals as well? What a year for the U.S. Olympian.

News: Blake Wheeler picked up a goal and two power-play assists in Thursday's 4-3 victory over San Jose.

Jets' Wheeler Grabs Assist Against Avs

News: Blake Wheeler picked up an assist on a goal by Dustin Byfuglien in a 3-2 loss to the Avalanche on Monday.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler and the gang have played much better since Paul Maurice became head coach, but the team has stumbled a bit in the last two weeks and Wheeler himself had been scoreless over the last three games. His fantasy owners have to hope he turns it on late in the season to help the Jets secure a playoff spot.

Jets' Wheeler Logs Minimal Ice Time In Sochi

News: Blake Wheeler averaged only 4:54 of ice time during his six games with the United States in the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Analysis: Considering the devastating injuries that befell Olympic participants John Tavares, Mats Zuccarello and Aleksander Barkov, the Jets are probably happy that Blake Wheeler didn't see the ice very often in Sochi. Although several skaters stood above him on a crowded American depth chart, the Jets will have no problem with plugging Wheeler back into a feature role the rest of the way. He leads the Jets with 22 goals on the season.

Analysis: Blake Wheeler now has seven points, including four goals and three assists in his last six games. He's been an offensive leader for the Jets since the franchise moved to Winnipeg. He's a surefire fantasy producer on a hot team, especially with Evander Kane (hand) on injured reserve.
