Blake Wheeler grabs an assist in loss to Blues

Blake Wheeler picked up an assist on Kyle Connor's third period goal, but the Jets lost to the Blues 3-2 in the shootout.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets captain is off to a terribly slow start. He's still without a goal, and this assist was just his third in seven games. Still, he was nearly a point-per-game player just last season, and he has the ice time and the linemates to get back to that level. He's a good buy-low candidate.

Fantasy Impact

Blake Wheeler picks up two points in victory

Blake Wheeler scored his 8th goal of the season over the glove of former Jet Eric Comrie. Wheeler also grabbed an assist on the Mark Scheifele powerplay goal in the third period.

Fantasy Impact

Wheeler's move to center ice has been a positive one for him and the Winnipeg Jets. It has given the team a truly lethal 1-2 punch. Wheeler's left winger (Nikolaj Ehlers) has been arguably the Jets best forward so far this season, so their success should continue as chemistry seems to be building between the Jets second line.

Blake Wheeler moved to second line center

Coach Maurice has Blake Wheeler skating as the Jets second line center with Nikolaj Ehlers and Jack Roslovic on his wings. The move comes after Bryan Little was placed on IR as a result of a scary incident in Tuesday's game against the Devils.

Fantasy Impact

A couple of seasons ago, Wheeler was moved to Center when Mark Scheifele spent an extended period of time on the IR. During that time Wheeler showed quite well in an unfamiliar position. Wheeler has been off to tremendously slow start to this season by his standards, so perhaps this new challenge will spark something for him.

Blake Wheeler scores twice in loss

Blake Wheeler scored twice in the Winnipeg Jets season opener on Thursday night. In addition to his two goals, Wheeler added 9 SOG, 3 hits, 1 blocked shot and a +1 rating in 22:50 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact

Wheeler should once again be a top end RW in the league for fantasy purposes. He plays with elite talent on his line, and has tremendous playmaking ability. Wheeler is a good bet to put up 90+ points again this season if he stays healthy.
