Winnipeg Jets captain Blake Wheeler has entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, the team announced Monday.

A player entering the protocols does not necessarily mean they have tested positive for the virus.

Wheeler, 35, has played in both of Winnipeg's two games so far this season, picking up an assist. His status for the Jets' game Tuesday in Minnesota is unknown.

The Jets will play their home opener on Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks.
