Wheeler awarded $2.2 million in arbitration
The NHLPA reported on its Twitter account Thursday night that forward Blake Wheeler was awarded a one-year, $2.2 million deal in arbitration
It's decision time for the Boston Bruins.

The NHLPA reported on its Twitter account Thursday night that forward Blake Wheeler was awarded a one-year, $2.2 million deal in arbitration. Wheeler and the Bruins went through a three-hour hearing in Toronto on Tuesday.

Wheeler, 23, appeared in all 82 regular-season games for the Bruins last season and had 18 goals and 20 assists. He also went 1-5-6 in 13 playoff contests.

Now that the case has been settled, the Bruins have 48 hours to accept the deal or walk away. Should they choose the latter, Wheeler would become an unrestricted free agent. 
Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
