Jussi Jokinen was placed on waivers so that the Kings can look at some younger players.

"He’s been great. He’s been a really good teammate," Kings coach John Stevens said. "He’s come in, his attitude has been terrific. He’s like another coach in the locker room. He understands the game really well, and I just think it’s a situation where maybe some young guys are taking a step. Get an opportunity to look at some young guys and see where they’re at." Los Angeles acquired Jokinen from Edmonton for Mike Cammalleri on Nov. 14. Since the trade, Jokinen has recorded a goal and five points in 18 contests with the Kings.

Jussi Jokinen netted the game-winning goal in the Kings' 5-2 victory over Washington Thursday night.

It was Jokinen's first game-winner since Dec. 31, 2016. He has a goal and three points in eight games with the Kings since being acquired from Edmonton.

Jussi Jokinen picked up an assist in his second straight game Saturday.

After getting only one assist in 14 games for the Oilers, Edmonton traded him on Tuesday to the Kings where he has points in both games thus far. The veteran loves LA.

Jussi Jokinen made his Los Angeles Kings debut on Thursday.

Jokinen registered an assist, but the Kings fell 2-1 to the Bruins. Jokinen had a decent 13:39 minutes of ice time in his first game with Los Angeles, including 3:38 minutes with the man advantage. He's worth keeping an eye on to see if the Kings continue to use him that heavily in power-play situations.

Jussi Jokinen took part in his first practice with the Kings on Thursday.

Based on the line rushes, it looks like Jokinen will be serving as a fourth liner alongside Andrew Crescenzi and Jonny Brodzinski. Los Angeles acquired Jokinen from Edmonton in exchange for Mike Cammalleri.

It's not clear yet how Jussi Jokinen will fit into the Kings' lineup.

Jokinen wasn't in Los Angeles in time for Wednesday's practice, so we haven't had an opportunity to see him in line rushes since he was acquired from Edmonton. If Kings coach John Stevens knows where Jokinen will fit in, then he isn't tipping his hand. "First and foremost, get him into town, get a chance to sit down with him, get him on the ice with the team in the morning and go from there," Stevens said on Wednesday. "We’ll get a chance to talk to him today and maybe sit down with him in the morning, but up until that point, it’s kind of an open book. We’ll come up with a plan once we get a chance to meet with him a little bit." The bench boss added he hasn't seen Jokinen play recently.

The Los Angeles Kings have acquired Jussi Jokinen from the Edmonton Oilers for Mike Cammalleri.

This appears to be a straight up swap of veteran forwards. Jokinen is off to a terrible start in 2017-18, as he has just one assist and no goals in 14 contests. He won't be worth owning in any fantasy format.
Tue, Nov 14, 2017 07:23:00 PM

Jussi Jokinen has only one assist in his last 14 games.

That is not a good start to the season from the Finn who was a healthy scratch in a couple of games to boot. "I haven’t been this unlucky ever in my career. I don’t think I’ve gone this long without a goal," Jokinen said. "I’ve created enough chances for myself and other players this season to have, say, three goals and three assists but it hasn’t happened."

Jussi Jokinen will be a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game against Pittsburgh.

The Oilers are reportedly willing to ship Jokinen out of town in a trade. He has just one assist in nine games this season. Eric Gryba and Jujhar Khaira will also be scratched.
