Wheeler Leaves Minnesota

Minnesota put out a press release today saying that Blake Wheeler has withdrawn from school at Minnesota, though he has not signed a contract with Phoenix yet. According to the release, Phoenix and Wheeler have 30 days to reach an agreement or else he will become a free agent.

Wheeler's departure was a bit of a foregone conclusion. He was one of the most talented players in college hockey last year, and could probably step right into Phoenix's lineup next season.
