It's safe to say that Blake Wheeler has had a tough season.

While he's playing some amazing hockey, getting stripped of the captaincy of the Winnipeg Jets was a big blow.
Speaking of big blows, Wheeler is skating for the first time since an injury sidelined him on December 15th. Today, that injury was revealed, and it shook every reader to the core.
Wheeler suffered from a burst testicle following a shot during practice from Josh Morrisey.
Blake Wheeler ruptured a testicle after being struck by a Josh Morrissey shot against Nashville on Dec. 15 and finished the game. The next day, upon learning that his situation required a medical procedure, Wheeler received the attention he required and was given the prognosis, relayed to media via Rick Bowness, of «probably at least four weeks.»

That was three weeks ago.

Now, a much-fast-than-expected recovery gives Wheeler the opportunity to join Nikolaj Ehlers, Cole Perfetti and Nate Schmidt in the march from Winnipeg's recovery room to its active roster. It's a stunning turn of good news, given Wheeler's on-ice impact this season, and an astonishing turn of events: A bruise is painful enough to imagine, while the word «rupture» conveys an entirely different universe of pain.

Twitter went crazy when this was revealed:
I don't even have testicles and I felt pain reading that.

At least Wheeler already has 3 kids!
