This was not the career path Blake Wheeler envisioned, though he's pretty happy about how things have worked out.
After playing in his 500th NHL game on Friday night, it's clear that Wheeler has found a comfortable hockey home with the Winnipeg Jets.
Now in his seventh NHL season, Wheeler took some time to reflect on how his career began earlier this week, starting with an early lesson about the business side of pro hockey.
"I played my last college game and I was fully expecting to sign with Phoenix and maybe even play games at the end of that season. I was ready to go," said Wheeler, who was chosen fifth overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
...
Wheeler ended up exercising a loophole in the collective bargaining agreement that allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent in late May of 2008 - following his junior season at the University of Minnesota - and signed with the Boston Bruins that summer.
"It was a clean slate. When I was drafted in Phoenix, it was different management and pretty much a different organization from the time I was drafted to the time I went to Boston. They had a new regime and new prospects," said Wheeler.
...
Wheeler had 21 goals and 45 points in 81 games as a rookie, then saw his production drop while languishing on the third line for much of the next two seasons.
...
I was like a caged animal, so to speak," said Wheeler, who set a career high with 28 goals and 68 points last season. "Once I got traded, I told myself I was going to do whatever it took not to let that happen again."
Wheeler had seven goals and 17 points in 23 games with the Thrashers and took another step in his development after the franchise relocated to Winnipeg.
As his ice time increased, Wheeler blossomed into a prototypical power forward and signed a six-year deal worth $33 million with the Jets during the summer of 2013.
With two assists in a 4-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday, Wheeler has 12 goals and 35 points in 46 games this season.
...
As for the significance of reaching 500 games, Wheeler knows he's come a long way.
"I was just hoping to play in the NHL. I've never really put much emphasis on how many games that I'm at," said Wheeler.
