Jets' Blake Wheeler: Racks up three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored an empty-net goal and supplied two assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

Wheeler assisted on Kyle Connor's power-play goal in the second period, as well as a Paul Stastny even-strength tally in the third. The 34-year-old Wheeler then added the empty-netter to seal the victory. He's up to seven scores, 16 helpers, 48 shots on net and 22 hits through 22 games. It's been all or nothing lately for Wheeler -- he's produced four multi-point efforts in the last eight contests, but the other four outings have seen him go scoreless.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Another three-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored a goal and supplied two assists in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.

Wheeler set up Kyle Connor on the power play for the Jets' first tally in the second period. Later in the frame, Wheeler scored the game-tying goal. He also helped out on Mark Scheifele's empty-netter to secure the win. Wheeler has picked up six points in the last two games. He's up to six goals, 14 assists, 42 shots on net, 22 PIM and 20 hits through 19 contests. At 34 years old, Wheeler continues to pile up offense, so he's a near-lock for virtual lineups.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Distributes trio of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler posted three assists, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.

Wheeler played provider for his linemates, setting up both of Pierre-Luc Dubois' goals as well as a tally from Mark Scheifele. That trio of forwards combined for nine points in the contest in their first game together. Wheeler is up to five goals, 12 helpers, 40 shots on net, 20 hits and 20 PIM through 18 contests this season. Should Dubois remain on the top line, Wheeler's production could bump up slightly.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Nets game-winner Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored a goal and supplied an assist in Monday's 6-5 win over the Oilers.

Wheeler's assist came on a Mark Scheifele power-play goal in the first period. After nine additional goals between the teams, Wheeler struck at 6:22 of the third period to put the Jets ahead for good. The veteran forward is up to five goals, 14 points, 31 shots, 16 hits and 16 PIM through 15 outings this year. The one knock on Wheeler's performance so far is a rather unsightly minus-10 rating -- in his previous 12 campaigns, he's never finished worse than minus-4.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: First goal in seven games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored a power-play goal on three shots in a 5-1 win over Ottawa on Thursday.

Wheeler converted a cross-crease dish from Paul Stastny to give the Jets a 3-0 lead with 27 seconds left in the second period. It was the fourth goal of the season for the Winnipeg captain, who last lit the lamp Jan. 24 against Edmonton. Wheeler has 12 points in 13 games this season but already owns a career-worst minus-9 rating.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Trio of assists Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler provided three assists in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Flames.

Wheeler was the facilitator Monday, with secondary helpers on both of Kyle Connor's power-play goals in the first period, as well as Mark Scheifele's equalizer at even strength in the third. The three-assist performance puts Wheeler at 11 points, 21 shots on goal, 10 PIM and 10 hits through nine games, though a minus-7 rating weighs down his overall stat line.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Buries third goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored a power-play goal on three shots and went minus-3 in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.

Wheeler gave the Jets a 3-2 lead with his tally, but it didn't hold up against Kailer Yamamoto and Leon Draisaitl in the final 3:05 of the game. Regardless, Wheeler has been productive this year with three goals and eight points through six appearances. He's added 18 shots on net, eight PIM and nine hits.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Reaches 500 career assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler notched a trio of assists and three shots on goal in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Senators.

Wheeler's first helper of the game, on a Kyle Connor goal in the second period, got the former to the 500-assist mark in his career. He didn't stay on the round number for long, adding assists on Paul Stastny's game-winner and Mark Scheifele's empty-netter in the third period. Wheeler's always been an effective play-maker (not to discount his scoring touch), and he now has seven points (two goals, five apples) through five contests.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Provides insurance goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored a goal on two shots and had six PIM in a 4-1 win over Ottawa on Thursday.

Wheeler finished off a pretty passing play with linemates Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor to give the Jets a 4-0 lead with just over six minutes left in the second period. Wheeler has found the net in each of his last two games and has four points through his first four games. The 34-year-old has hit the 20-goal plateau in each of the last seven seasons and has shown no signs of slowing down early in the 2020-21 campaign.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Two-point night Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

His first goal of the season was a big one, coming with 1:17 left in the third period to tie the score at 3-3 and set the stage for Nikolaj Ehlers' OT heroics. Wheeler now has three points through three games to begin the season, as he looks to regain the point-a-game pace he didn't quite reach in 2019-20 following back-to-back 91-point campaigns.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Pushes point streak to six
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler picked up a goal and an assist and had a pair of shots in a 4-2 win over the Oilers on Wednesday.

Wheeler got the Jets on the board midway through the second period and later drew the secondary assist on Kyle Connor's game-winner early in the final frame. Wheeler extended his point streak to six games (one goal, seven assists) and has found the scoresheet in 10 of his last 11 contests. After back-to-back 91-point campaigns, Wheeler has enjoyed another productive season with 22 goals and 43 assists in 71 games.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Extends point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler grabbed an assist versus the Coyotes on Monday, bringing his point streak to six games.

Despite his recent run of productivity, Wheeler remains bogged down in a six-game goal drought dating back to Feb. 23 versus Buffalo. The 33-year-old is set to miss the 90-point mark for the first time since 2016-17 but should still have time to reach 70.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Riding four-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler notched a power-play assist, three blocked shots and two PIM in Friday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights.

Wheeler has five assists during a four-game point streak, and he's only been held off the scoresheet once in his last nine outings. The 33-year-old forward now has 21 goals, 62 points, 176 shots, 100 hits and 37 PIM through 69 appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler collected a pair of assists and had two hits with two shots in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over Buffalo.

Wheeler threaded a perfect 2-on-1 feed to Kyle Connor to open the scoring late in the first period, then drew the secondary assist on Connor's power-play tally early in the middle frame. Wheeler has picked up four assists over the last three games and has hit the scoresheet in seven of his last eight. The veteran winger has 21 goals and 40 helpers in 68 games this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler set up Kyle Connor for a go-ahead goal at 13:57 of the second period, although the lead didn't make it to the intermission.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Big night propels Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored twice and added an assist to go with five shots Tuesday in a 6-3 win against the Kings.

The two goals gave Wheeler 20 on the season, the seventh straight year he's managed to reach that plateau. He scored on a tap-in late in the second period to put the Jets up 3-1, then he rounded out the scoring with a deflection with 89 seconds left in regulation. At age 33, Wheeler is enjoying another standout campaign with 54 points in 61 games.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Will play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (illness) will be in action versus San Jose on Friday, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports.

Wheeler has racked up two goals and six helpers in his last 10 outings, including four power-play points. With the Minnesota native good to go, Andrew Copp will drop back to a third-line role while Andrei Chibisov remains in the press box.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler is under the weather and is in doubt for Friday's matchup with San Jose, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

Wheeler has recorded 49 points in 58 games this season but will need to pick up the pace if he wants to reach 90 for a third straight year. Based on Thursday's line combinations, Andrew Copp figures to slot into the second-line center role if Wheeler is unavailable.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored a power-play goal on six shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.
