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: 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.

The two goals gave Wheeler 20 on the season, the seventh straight year he's managed to reach that plateau.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Keeps hot streak rolling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler dished out two assists -- one shorthanded -- while skating 17:06 in Monday's 3-2 win over Montreal.

Wheeler was unselfish Monday, dishing his teammate Nikolaj Ehlers back door on a 2-on-0 shorthanded goal in the second period for the game's second goal. Monday's effort leaves Wheeler with 14 goals and 24 assists through 42 games this campaign, as he's racked up seven points in his past five games. His 38 points halfway through the season keeps him on pace for at least 70 points for the fifth consecutive season.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Warming trend continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler delivered a goal and assist on the power play Saturday in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.

Wheeler is off his usual 90-point production level since he moved to center this season, but in many ways the Jets are better for the move. On the PP, he reunites with former linemate Mark Scheifele and on Saturday, Wheeler made good there. Too bad they lost the game. He's been solid in his last 10 games -- six goals and seven goals. This could be the uptick in performance that leads to a better second half. Hold onto him. Wheeler won't be a 90-point man again, but he could definitely be a point-per-game producer in the second half.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Two-goal performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored twice and added an assist with two shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 win over Colorado.

It was Wheeler's first multi-goal game since Opening Night, but he's been a consistent point producer all season for the Jets. Wheeler was particularly explosive in December, collecting seven goals and nine assists in 12 games. The 33-year-old continues to play some of his most productive hockey late in his career, putting up 34 points in 40 games this season after back-to-back 91-point campaigns.

Jets' Blake Wheeler: New franchise scoring leader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler scored a short-handed goal and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Wild.

His tally late in the first period ended up being the game-winner, while Wheeler's setup of a Patrik Laine blast early in the third was his 30th point of the season and 616th as a Jet. That's a big deal -- he's now the all-time franchise scoring leader, topping the mark set by Ilya Kovalchuk in Atlanta before the team moved north.
