Wheeler nets $2.2 million arbitration award

Blake Wheeler has been given a one-year, $2.2 million arbitration award. The decision was made today following Wheeler’s arbitration hearing on Tuesday in Toronto.

“Blake and I are pleased with the decision,” Matt Keator, Wheeler’s agent, said in a statement. “It came in the range we expected given the common comparables presented by both sides. He is ready to go to camp and have a great season.”

Wheeler has yet to sign a contract for the award, but that is considered a formality. The Bruins are not expected to walk away from the award.
