Jussi Jokinen's role in the Panthers offense will have to increase now that Jonathan Huberdeau has been ruled out for at least two months.

Jokinen was poised to start the season as the second line left winger alongside Vincent Trocheck and Reilly Smith. Gerard Gallant has not announced yet whether he plans on experimenting with someone else on the top unit or defaulting to Jokinen, the next left winger on the depth chart. Regardless, Jokinen will see increased power play time and might have the opportunity to play with Sasha Barkov and Jaromir Jagr on a regular basis while Huberdeau recovers. He is worth an add if he's on the waiver wire.
