Wheeler seems excited to play in WPG. It seems like the two sides will eventually come to terms on a new contract.

“That’s just tremendous for my peeps in Minnesota to be so close,” Wheeler, who hails from Robbinsdale, Minnesota, told Fox Sports North. “I expect to have family and friends make the journey to Winnipeg all winter. The word ‘bittersweet’ comes to mind because Atlanta was such a fun place to play for me. On the flip side, we rarely played in front of many people in Atlanta, and seeing that Winnipeg sold over 13,000 season tickets … was awesome.”

“It is definitely exciting getting the opportunity to play in a hockey-crazy place like Winnipeg. You can see the enthusiasm in the fans from the videos that have been put on the Internet after the news broke,” Wheeler told the Globe in an email.

i hope he turns into a 02-03 bertuzzi in his prime, that would be amazing.

Wheeler is a decent player but we don't really have room for him.
