    Jets' Blake Wheeler: Declines All-Star invitation

    Wheeler declined the opportunity to play in the 2016 NHL All-Star Game as an injury replacement, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Wheeler got the call after Chicago's Jonathan Toews pulled out of the game with an illness. The former Golden Gopher is enjoying a career year in Winnipeg, with 48 points in 49 contests, and was more than deserving of a spot in the game when the rosters were initially released. Look for Wheeler's success to continue, especially if he remains on a line with fellow burners Mark Scheifele and Nikolaj Ehlers.
