Jussi Jokinen (undisclosed) didn't practice Wednesday and could be done for the rest of the season.

The 34-year-old forward has 11 goals and 28 points in 69 games this season. That's a far cry from the 60 points he recorded in 2015-16.
Apr 5 - 1:32 PM

Jussi Jokinen got a goal and an assist Tuesday night against Toronto.

He got a power-play marker in the final minute of the second period to end a 10-game goalless drought. Jokinen had one point in his previous seven outings and he currently has just 25 points in 58 games this campaign.
Mar 15 - 10:13 AM

Jussi Jokinen worked on the fourth line Wednesday.

He joined Derek MacKenzie, Denis Malgin, Michael Sgarbossa and Shawn Thornton. Sgarbossa and Thornton are expected to be the odd-men out if that combination remains intact for Friday's game against Minnesota.
Mar 9 - 10:39 AM

Jussi Jokinen picked up two assists in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Edmonton.

He had primary helpers on goals by Aleksander Barkov (power play) and Colton Sceviour. Jokinen is enjoying his most productive stretch of the season with four goals and eight points in the past eight games.
Feb 23 - 8:51 AM

Jussi Jokinen has netted four of his nine goals in the past six games.

He also has two assists during that span and eight points over the last nine matches. Jokinen has produced just 19 points in 48 games this season, but it looks like he finish the year strong.
Feb 22 - 10:07 AM

Jussi Jokinen posted his third two-point game over his last five contests during Saturday's 7-4 win over the Predators.

Each have been of the goal and assist variety, raising his season's sum to seven goals and 17 points through 44 games.
Feb 11 - 8:51 PM

Jussi Jokinen scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Jokinen's goal at the 12:04 mark of the first period cut Los Angeles' lead to 2-1 at the time. He also helped set up Jonathan Marchesseault's marker in the third frame, but the game was already over at that point. Jokinen finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes and one shot on goal in 14:28 of ice time. He has six goals and nine assists in 43 games this season. He isn't worth picking up in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 11:57 PM

Jussi Jokinen opened scoring shorthanded and then picked up an assist on the power-play in a 2-1 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Jokinen took a cross-ice feed from Vincent Trocheck and buried it behind a sprawling Andre Vasilevsky for his 5th goal of the year. After picking up an impressive 60 points last year, Jokinen has produced only 13 points in 40 games this season. He should not be owned in any format. Jonathan Marchessault picked up the game-winning goal for the Panthers.
Jan 26 - 10:32 PM

Forward Jussi Jokinen scored a goal and picked up an assist in the Florida Panthers' 3-0 shutout of the visiting New Jersey Devils Monday night.

Vincent Trocheck also registered a goal and an assist. Their assists were produced on Reilly Smith's power-play goal in the first period. It was Smith's eighth goal of the season. Jokinen made it 2-0 with his fourth goal of the season at 18:55 of the third period and Trocheck contributed his 12th of the season at 19:44. Both late goals were into the empty net.
Jan 9 - 9:35 PM

Jussi Jokinen will skate alongside Nick Bjugstad and Vincent Trocheck on Wednesday night versus Toronto.

He has accounted for just two goals and six points in 25 games this year. Jokinen ended a seven-game point skid last Friday against Detroit. He was a 60-point player last season and interim coach Tom Rowe thinks Jokinen is showing flashes of that form recently.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 10:52:00 AM

Jussi Jokinen finally returned to the scoreboard during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers.

The veteran winger picked up his second goal of the season, his other coming on Nov 19th. He had no points during the eight-game span in between. Jokinen now has five points in 17 games this season.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 10:59:00 PM

Jussi Jokinen skated on the Panthers' top line alongside Jaromir Jagr and Aleksander Barkov Saturday night against the Senators.

The line was electric as both Jagr and Jokinen scored and Barkov picked up two assists. We suspect that Florida coach Gerard Gallant will leave this unit intact for Sunday's contest against the Rangers.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 09:27:00 AM

Jussi Jokinen will be a late scratch against the Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

The 33-year-old winger has three helpers and no goals in seven games so far this season. He's already missed time with injury, and considering the compressed nature of this season's schedule, Jokinen is probably just getting some rest. Jared McCann will play instead.
Thu, Nov 17, 2016 07:15:00 PM

Jussi Jokinen logged 16:42 of ice time in his return to the lineup on Thursday night.

He finished with one shot and a minus-2 rating in Florida's 4-2 loss to San Jose. Jokinen missed nine games with a lower-body injury.
