Blake Wheeler scored twice in 15 seconds as Winnipeg ruined the season opener for the Coyotes before an announced sellout of 17,525.
Wheeler also added an assist, his pass to Dustin Byfuglien for a tap-in from right in front at 12:31 of the second period to give Winnipeg a 5-1 lead.
Wheeler, who led the Jets with 69 points last season, including a career-high 28 goals, scored on a turnaround shot at 11:27 of the first.
The frustrated Coyotes served 17 minutes on seven penalties in the first period, including 5 minutes for fighting for Doan, who went after Wheeler in an apparent attempt to fire up his teammates.
Wheeler also got 5 minutes.

Jets winger Blake Wheeler took exception to a hit delivered by Kings defenceman Robyn Regehr on Mark Scheifele, dropping the gloves for the second time in a week.
Although Regehr was given a fighting major and an extra minor for tripping for the hit on Scheifele, Wheeler received two minutes for being the instigator, five for fighting and a mandatory 10-minute misconduct as part of the instigator rule.
"I felt like it was knee-on-knee, so if it was the other way, I think somebody would do the same thing," said Wheeler.
"So when you talk about fights in hockey, that happened real fast. (Wheeler) didn't like the hit, nobody did.

Once Blake Wheeler had established the Jets' 2-1 lead early in the third, the Canucks really bumped the pace to win their first game in three outings before 18,890 fans at Rogers Arena, more than just a few of them cheering for the Jets.
"We didn't really skate most of the game," Wheeler said.
Early in the third, following an Pavelec save on a David Booth rush for Vancouver, the Jets turned it the other way and Wheeler picked the short side form a sharp angle to put the Jets ahead for the first time in the game.

Blake Wheeler signs 6-year $33.6MM deal to remain with the Winnipeg Jets
For the second time in his short career with the Winnipeg Jets, Blake Wheeler has avoided an arbitration hearing by signing a contract just days ahead of time. This time the deal is six years in length, worth a monstrous $33.6 million dollars for an annual cap hit of $5.6MM per season. He is now the second highest paid Winnipeg Jets player behind only Tobias Enstrom, and is the only member of the Jets signed through the 2018-2019 season.

2012 - Blake Wheeler
Wheeler is a big time player, and now has a big time contract to go with it. He is oft to use his size and deceptive speed to his advantage, and causes a lot of mayhem when he flies down the wing and drives the net. His 105 points over the last two seasons ranks 30th in the NHL, while his 36 goals are good for 53rd most.
Locking Wheeler up for as long as they did also means that, come the end of his current contract, he'll be a UFA at the age of 32.
The Winnipeg Jets are running out of salary cap space.
Explaining how $35MM in payroll really equals $56MM.
Wheeler is a former fifth overall draft pick of the Phoenix Coyotes, however he refused to sign a contract with the club, allowing him to become a free agent in 2008, four years after he was drafted. During that span he had a successful career with the Minnesota Golden Gophers of the NCAA. He went on to sign with the Boston Bruins, with whom he played for the next three years. He amassed 100 points as a Bruin before being traded to the Atlanta Thrashers along with Mark Stuart at the 2011 NHL Trade Deadline for Boris Valabik and Rich Peverley. Since joining his current franchise, he has totalled 122 points in 151 games played. Wheeler was recently named as one of four Jets selected to the preliminary roster for the U.S. Olympic team and has represented his country twice before, once at the World Championships in 2011, as well as at the 2006 World Junior Hockey Championships.
With Wheeler now secured for the foreseeable future, the only Restricted Free Agent the Jets have left to sign is defenseman Zach Bogosian.
But the good news is: @BiggieFunke is back, and Andrew Ladd, Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler are reunited once more, as the Jets' top line will be together heading into future.
