The Winnipeg Jets were busy on Monday signing seven players including right-winger Blake Wheeler to new contract. Wheeler signed a two-year deal worth $5.1 million total.
Wheeler scored seven goals and 17 points in 23 games with the Thrashers last season after being acquired in a trade with the Boston Bruins. He scored 18 goals and 44 points in 81 games overall last year.
In 244 career games Wheeler has 57 goals and 127 points to go along with 145 penalty minutes. He was originally drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round, fifth overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
