Blake Wheeler Takes #theMAchallenge
If anyone knows about performing at the top of your game, it is professional hockey player Blake Wheeler, captain of the Winnipeg Jets in the National Hockey League (NHL). For Blake, hockey isn’t merely a sport, it’s his life.
Hailing from Plymouth, Minnesota, Blake was born and raised with hockey in his blood and it was clear from a young age, to coaches and teammates alike, his passion and natural ability would see him reach the highest echelons of the sport. His hard work and dedication paid off in 2008 when Blake made his NHL debut with the Boston Bruins. In 2011, Blake was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers and in that same year, the team was relocated to Winnipeg, Canada and renamed the Jets.
Blake’s personal mantra is simple: work hard and be nice to people. With those principles guiding everything he does, it’s no surprise that this team captain is also an all-time fan favorite. At only 33, he’s already considered a veteran in the league with impressive career highlights that include representing the US Olympic Men’s Hockey Team at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Recognized not only as a top player on the Winnipeg Jets but also across the entire NHL roster, this all-star’s career is on fire with no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Clocking countless miles in transit, Blake and his teammates travel to over 40 away games a season (not including playoffs) and whether at home or on the road, they’re always required to suit up to convey professionalism and to shift their mindset to a game-day mentality. With such a grueling travel schedule, comfort and performance functionality is just as important to him as a stylish ensemble, which is why he won’t hit the road without his Modern Ambition suit, effortlessly taking him from game days to team dinners to cross-county flights and beyond. Wearing Modern Ambition, Blake always appears composed and polished and feels incredible, on and off the ice.
