Wheeler Signs Six Years
The Winnipeg Jets are pleased to announce they have agreed to terms with forward Blake Wheeler on a new six-year contract worth $33.6 million.

The Winnipeg Jets are pleased to announce they have agreed to terms with forward Blake Wheeler on a new six-year contract worth $33.6 million.

“For me it was virtually a no-brainer,” said Wheeler in a conference call Saturday morning. “I sat down with my agent in April or May and we had the discussion. I looked him in the eyes and said, “This is where I want to be”.

“I believe in people like Mark Chipman and Chevy (GM Kevin Cheveldayoff), what everyone stands for and especially in my teammates. I have believed since I got here that we have what it takes to get to the next level, so this is just a part of that process. I truly believe that great things are in store for this group.”

Wheeler, 26, played in 48 games with the Winnipeg Jets last season. In that time, the right-winger recorded 41 points (19G, 22A) and 28 penalty minutes. He led the Jets in goals and ranked second on the club’s leaderboard in overall points.

The Robbinsdale, MN native has played in 372 career NHL games between Boston, Atlanta and Winnipeg for 232 career points (93G, 139A) and 228 penalty minutes. He has also appeared in 21 post-season games, all with the Bruins for six points (1G, 5A) and six penalty minutes.

He was originally drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round, fifth overall, in the 2004 NHL Draft.
