#NHLJets Blake Wheeler will not travel to Ottawa today as he is being held for 24 hours. Tests on throat and neck are negative (good).
Wheeler suffered a scary neck incident yesterday and may miss a few games. The Robbinsdale, Minnesota native scored nine goals and 32 points in 44 games.

After taking a shot to what appeared to be the throat, Jets say that Blake Wheeler will not return today #nhl #NHLJets
Not good news for the red-hot Wheeler. Excluding today's game, the former 5th overall pick produced at least a point in eight of his last 10 games. Check back for a further update on the right wing.
Jets have recalled F Patrice Cormier. Wondering if Blake Wheeler is OK after apparently sustaining leg injury vs. Montreal last night.
Wheeler could miss tonight's game. He has seven goals and 30 points in 39 games which includes a six-game point streak.

And for a Winnipeg Jets franchise that is expecting several players to elevate their games to the next level, Wheeler just might be the poster boy for a breakout season.
Wheeler is entering his fourth NHL season and should be motivated after watching the Bruins win the Stanley Cup. Last season he scored seven goals and 17 points over 23 games while with the Atlanta Thrashers and skating on the top line. Over a full season those stats project for 25 goals and 61 points.
