There are 26 days until the Winnipeg Jets drop the puck against the Arizona Coyotes to open the NHL season. Fans of the team need no reminder who wears the number 26 for Jets each and every night.

Blake Wheeler established a new career high with 69 points in 2013-2014. The 26-year-old forward was the team leader in points last season, scoring 28 times, also a career high. In his time with the Jets organization, Wheeler has only missed two regular season games.

The Robbinsdale, MN native also represented the USA for the first time as an Olympian in the 2014 Games in Sochi, where he recorded one assist in six games.
