"He brings so much. He's just a great, great pro and a great example for our young players." Fantasy owners will be pleased to know that the points have been there as well. Wheeler sits seventh in the league with 40 points in 39 games and he ranks fourth in assists with 30.

Blake Wheeler says he's 100 percent healthy after being hit by a Dustin Byfuglien shot in practice.

The plan is for Wheeler to play against the Coyotes on Saturday night. "I was (concerned). A puck right to the head is pretty painful. It was initially pretty bad and luckily it hit me in a spot with a lot of bone," said Wheeler. "As long as it don't get hit in the same spot, it should be good."
