Blake Wheeler has dropped the gloves twice in three games this season.
Coach Paul Maurice doesn't mind that his top player is engaging in fisticuffs, especially after Sunday's tilt came as a result of a low check to Mark Scheifele. "I like his fight and his compete, know what I mean?" the Jets bench boss said. "That happens fast. So when you talk about fights in hockey, that happened real fast. He didn't like the hit. Nobody did. And you want that reaction, for me, rather than turning around and screaming at the referee for a call. Clearly, we don't need somebody else to come out and answer for it. It happens then and it's dealt with then. I like how hard he plays, how hard he competes and it's a good example for our team." The play gave Wheeler an instigator penalty, along with a misconduct. Wheeler hasn't found the scoresheet in his past two outings after he had two goals and a helper in Winnipeg's regular season opener. Oct 13 - 7:05 AM
