Well-Rounded Night For Jets' Wheeler

News: Blake Wheeler had a productive all-around showing in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks, supplying a goal, assist, five shot attempts, two PIM and two hits.
Analysis: While he doesn't get much fanfare, Blake Wheeler has very quietly surpassed the 60-point mark in his last two full seasons and appears poised to do the same again. He's chugging along with 25 points in 35 games, and isn't afraid to mix it up defensively either, as his 45 PIM and 54 hits on the season would suggest.

Six Points In Three Games For Jets' Wheeler

News: Blake Wheeler scored his first goal since Nov. 15, added a shorthanded assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler's been red-hot over the last three games, picking up the goal as well as five assists and a plus-4 rating. After scoring 28 goals last year, he's off to a much slower pace this season, but his shooting percentage remains a tick lower than his career norm, so Wheeler should start finding the net a bit more regularly as the year goes on.

Jets' Wheeler Bags Trio Of Assists

News: Blake Wheeler picked up three assists and had five shots on goal in Friday's win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: The three-point outing snapped a four-game scoring drought for Blake Wheeler, who now has eight goals and 19 points in 27 games on the season. While he's on track for another 60-point season, Wheeler has been frustratingly inconsistent this season, being held off the scoresheet 17 different times. While he remains an elite fantasy option, expect the 28-year-old to fall just shy of the career-high 28 goals and 69 points he recorded in 2013-14.

Jets' Wheeler Notches Two Helpers

News: Blake Wheeler didn't score a goal among his five shots Tuesday against Columbus, but did pick up two assists and a plus-2 rating.
Analysis: That's three helpers in two games for Blake Wheeler on the heels of a three-game scoreless skid. Like most of the rest of the Jets, he's been inconsistent and unimpressive with his scoring so far this year.

Jets' Wheeler Strikes Shorthanded In Loss

News: Blake Wheeler scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday's loss to Nashville.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler now has three goals in his last two games, putting him at eight markers on the season -- 10th-best in the NHL. The right-winger now has 13 points in 18 games to go with a fantasy-relevant 35 PIM. After a career-high 28-goal, 69-point season in 2013-14, Wheeler is delivering the goods once again in 2014-15. He is leading the Jets in scoring and should be in your lineup every night Winnipeg is in action.

Blake Wheeler

Wheeler's Two Goals Carry Jets To Win

News: Blake Wheeler's sixth and seventh goals of the year led the Jets past Carolina by a 3-1 score Thursday.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler opened the scoring in the first period and then put the Jets back in front for good in the second. This represents his third multi-point game in the last five, and he's got three goals and three assists in that span despite having gone scoreless in the last two games. Consistency's been an issue for Wheeler, but he appears to steadily be getting his game on track.

Wheeler Stuffs Stat Sheet, But Jets Lose

News: Blake Wheeler collected two assists, three shots on goal, five PIM, four hits and a plus-1 rating in Thursday's shootout loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Well, you can't pin the loss on Blake Wheeler, who's got consecutive two-point outings under his belt now, as he even did his part in the shootout, beating Marc-Andre Fleury in the first round. After a slow start, Wheeler's rounding into midseason form.

Jets' Wheeler Provides Two Points

News: Blake Wheeler picked up a power-play assist and scored an empty-net goal in Tuesday's win over the Preds.
Analysis: He needed an empty-netter to do it, but it's still Blake Wheeler's first multi-point game since the season opener. If not for the lockout in 2012-13, Wheeler would probably be going for his fourth consecutive 60-plus-point season this year, so expect him to pick up the pace.

Jets' Wheeler Claims Fourth Goal

News: Blake Wheeler tallied the Jets' lone goal in Thursday's loss to the Devils.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler has a respectable six points in 10 games, but three of the them came in the season opener, making his more recent production fairly unimpressive overall. He did welcome back Evander Kane (knee) to his second line on Thursday, which may allow Wheeler to deliver more frequent points over the games to come.

Blake Wheeler

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.

Jets' Wheeler Dealing Up Helpers

News: Blake Wheeler picked up two assists Saturday in a win over Toronto. He now has 40 assists on the season.
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.

Wheeler's Three Points Lift Jets

News: Blake Wheeler picked up a goal and two power-play assists in Thursday's 4-3 victory over San Jose.
Analysis: Despite taking just one shot on goal, Blake Wheeler was the driving force behind the Jets' offense in this one. He's now cleared 60 points for the second time in his career and is just two off his career-high mark of 64, set in 2011-12.

Jets' Wheeler Delivers Game-Winner

News: Blake Wheeler capped a three-point night with the winning goal in overtime Wednesday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler's goal came just under two minutes into overtime, as he fired a shot from the boards through traffic to earn his fourth game-winner of the season. The two helpers in addition to his 24th goal give Wheeler a team-leading 59 points on the season.

Jets' Wheeler Notches Four Assists

News: Blake Wheeler had four helpers and was a plus-3 against the Stars on Sunday.
Analysis: A big game for Blake Wheeler, obviously, who is heading for a career year. He already has a career high in goals with 23, and his 56 points are closing in on his high of 64.

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.

Two More Assists For Jets' Wheeler

News: Blake Wheeler compiled two assists in Saturday's shootout loss to the Blues.
Analysis: That gives the forward four helpers in his last three games, though he has only a plus-1 rating to show for it. With 46 points in 59 games and no major scoring droughts along the way, he continues to hum along just fine for fantasy owners.

Jets' Wheeler Finds Scoresheet Again

News: Blake Wheeler put up an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Carolina.
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.

Jets' Wheeler Continues To Roll

News: Blake Wheeler scored his 21st goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler has six goals and 11 points in his last eight games and has scored in each of the last three games. His 21 markers on the season ties his career high. In what's been a subpar season for the Jets, Wheeler has provided outstanding value for his fantasy owners this year.
