The Winnipeg Jets will be without their captain for the team's upcoming road trip.
Blake Wheeler took an elbow to the cheek from Ottawa forward Brady Tkachuk on Monday night but stayed in the game. Jets coach Paul Maurice said today the veteran right winger wasn't feeling well this morning, and will be checked out further for a possible concussion.
Winnipeg starts a five-game road trip in Montreal on Thursday night. Andrew Copp will play on a line with Pierre-Luc Dubois and Paul Stastny, while Jansen Harkins returns to the lineup.
