The Jets have activated Blake Wheeler (lower-body) from IR; will play Sunday.
Wheeler has missed the last two games, but was expected to be back today. He was activated from IR and Carl Klingberg was returned to the AHL, which guarantees that Wheeler will be back Sunday vs. the Kings. He will surprisingly skate on the Jets third line with Adam Lowry and Chris Thorburn.
Wheeler (lower-body) is expected to play on Sunday.
Wheeler missed the last two games with a lower-body injury but he was back on the ice for Jets practice this morning and is expected to play tomorrow. Coach Paul Maurice said that Wheeler will play as long as he feels as good tomorrow as he did today.
Wheeler will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury, but head coach Paul Maurice said the injury is not all that serious and he is hopeful that Wheeler will be back in the lineup on Sunday.
Wheeler (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's game.
Wheeler missed Monday’s practice and could be out for Tuesday’s game. He is currently listed as day-to-day, but monitor his status during tomorrow’s morning skate. If Wheeler plays, Dustin Byfuglien will play defence, if Wheeler doesn’t play then Big Buff will play forward.
As expected it was maintenance day for Blake Wheeler. Claude Noel said he took a shot the other day and some swelling was still there.
Noel said Wheeler should be OK and he expects him to be a player Sunday against San Jose. This is good news for the Jets, Wheeler broke a 4 game pointless streak with 2 assists on Friday against Nashville.
