Watch: Jets' Wheeler tells reporter to 'f--- off' after playoff elimination
Wheeler reeled it in after telling the reporter to "f--- off," adding that the Stanley Cup "is a tough trophy to win" and perhaps the Jets' best effort "just wasn't good enough."
Winnipeg bowed out of the postseason with a 3-2 loss to the Blues in Game 6 in St. Louis, the first road loss by either team in the series. The club's exit in Round 1 comes a year after reaching the Western Conference Final in 2018.
Wheeler recorded five points during his short six-game stint in the 2019 playoffs.
