Jets' Wheeler Grabs Two Points In Return

News: Blake Wheeler finished with an assist and an empty net goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler showed no signs of rust as he was activated from injured reserve earlier Sunday after missing a week with a knee injury. While his scoring pace is down from a career-best 69 points last season, the 28-year-old should top 50 points for the third time in his career, and also has a solid plus-14 rating.

Jets Activate Wheeler (Knee) From IR

News: Blake Wheeler (knee) was activated from injured reserve Sunday and will likely play against the Kings.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 21, meaning he will miss the minimum amount of time required prior to his return. The winger has 44 points in 61 games this season, adding another 67 penalty minutes to go along with a plus-12 rating. He should be good to go Sunday with the activation, especially considering the team reassigned Carl Klingberg to AHL St. John's.

Jets' Wheeler Could Return Sunday

News: Blake Wheeler (knee) was a full participant in Saturday's practice and looks like he could be ready to play Sunday against the Kings, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. "If Blake comes to the rink [Sunday] feeling the way he did [Saturday], he'll be in the lineup," coach Paul Maurice said after the practice.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler didn't skate with Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little during the practice like he has for much of the season, but did see regular work with the third line and on the Jets' top power-play unit. As Maurice alluded to, the Jets will check in on Wheeler's condition following Sunday's morning skate, after which he would likely be activated from IR if all goes well.

Jets Place Wheeler On IR

News: Blake Wheeler (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: The Jets had already ruled Blake Wheeler out for Thursday's game against the Blues, so the move to IR doesn't change his situation much. He's still viewed as day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game against the Kings, but will probably need to get back on the ice for practice within the next couple of days to have a realistic shot at playing.

Jets' Wheeler Still Sidelined

News: Blake Wheeler (lower body) won't play Thursday against the Blues.
Analysis: According to coach Paul Maurice, Blake Wheeler remains day-to-day in advance of Sunday's contest against the Kings.

Jets' Wheeler Out Tuesday

News: Blake Wheeler (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Stars.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler thus remains day-to-day as Thursday's game against the Blues approaches, with Dustin Byfuglien poised to work as a forward for the Jets on Tuesday.

Jets' Wheeler (Undisclosed) Misses Morning Skate

News: Blake Wheeler (undisclosed) did not participate in the morning skate ahead of Tuesday's game against the Stars, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: With Blake Wheeler in danger of missing Tuesday's game, Michael Frolik was on the first line alongside Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little at morning skate, according to Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press. T.J. Galiardi, who was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game in Toronto, joined the third line at morning skate.

Jets' Wheeler Misses Practice

News: Blake Wheeler (unspecified issue) missed practice Monday, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Blake Wheeler is dealing with a "relatively minor ailment," which clouds the forward's status for Tuesday's game against the Stars. If he misses the contest, Dustin Byfuglien could be called upon to fill in up front for the Jets.

Blake Wheeler

Jets' Wheeler Grabs Two Points In Win

News: Blake Wheeler finished with two assists and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 5-4 win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler is in the midst of a solid scoring stretch as he's notched eight points in his last nine contests. He probably won't be able to match his 28 goals or 69 points from last season, but the 28-year-old has a respectable total of 44 points and a plus-15 rating through 59 games.

Jets' Wheeler Scores Goal In Loss

News: Blake Wheeler notched his 14th goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler kicked off the scoring with a marker 69 seconds into Tuesday's contest, but the Flames scored the next four in a row to turn the contest into a rout. While the Jets have been struggling on the defensive end of late, it hasn't resulted in a dramatic decline in Wheeler's fantasy utility. During the Jets' four-game losing streak, he's compiled a goal, an assist and 16 shots en route to a plus-1 rating.

Jets' Wheeler Scores Game Winner Wednesday

News: Blake Wheeler scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler's tally came at the 1:08 mark of the first period, and ended up being the game winner. He now has 13 goals and 23 assists in 48 games on the season.

Pair Of Assists For Jets' Wheeler

News: Blake Wheeler set up two goals, bringing his assist total to 23, in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: In addition to the 23 apples, Blake Wheeler also has 12 goals, giving him a total of 35 points, 53 PIM and 133 shots on goal in 46 games this season. Along with fellow top-liners Andrew Ladd (38 points) and Bryan Little (36 points), Wheeler has been a monster for the Jets this season, especially in three wins against Chicago in which he's tallied four points -- all of them on the road.

Jets' Wheeler Scores 12th Goal

News: Blake Wheeler scored his 12th goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's win over Los Angeles.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler now has nine points (three goals) in his last eight games, giving him 32 points in 42 games on the season. With at least one point in 12 of his past 16 outings, Wheeler has gotten himself on track for a 23-goal, 60-point season. He should be in your lineup every night he's in action.

Point Streak Stretches To Five For Jets' Wheeler

News: Blake Wheeler stretched his point streak to five games by picking up an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Blake Wheeler hasn't submitted any eye-popping performances during that span, but two goals, four assists and a plus-6 rating is helpful enough for anybody. With 29 points in 39 games, Wheeler is on track to surpass the 60-point barrier for the second straight season and third time in four years.

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.

Blake Wheeler, RW, WPG Six Points In Three Games For Jets' Wheeler

Blake Wheeler

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.

Blake Wheeler

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.

Blake Wheeler

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.
