Highlights
1-time NHL Second All-Star Team 1

Wheeler can really do it all; he's an excellent passer, has a great shot, and uses his 6'5, 225 lb frame to outmuscle opponents. He won MVP at the 2009 YoungStars game with 4 goals and 5 points. The big winger was traded to the Thrashers (now the Jets) in 2011 and was named team Captain in 2016. Wheeler's 68 assists in 2018 were tied for the most in the NHL.
