The Florida Panthers came back from a 2-0 deficit to win 5-3 due to the work of forwards such as Jussi Jokinen and Brad Boyes.

Jokinen generated three assists apiece in the comeback effort. Brandon Pirri had a strong night of his own, scoring two important goals on Saturday. Jaromir Jagr was unable to score a point in his Panthers debut, only get a -1 for his effort.

Jussi Jokinen scored a goal for the Panthers in a 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago Tuesday night.

Jokinen has only found the back of the net six times this year, but that's partially due to poor luck and partly the result of him taking on playmaking role with the young Panthers. Vincent Trocheck also scored for the Panthers in the shootout loss.
Feb 25 - 12:27 AM

Jussi Jokinen scored a power play goal and added an assist for the Panthers in a 3-2 win over Toronto Tuesday night.

The veteran winger has not scored at the same pace he did with Pittsburgh last season, but that was never really expected once he signed with Florida over the summer. Nick Bjugstad and Jimmy Hayes also scored for the Panthers in the win.
Feb 17 - 10:46 PM

Jussi Jokinen contributed a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-2 win against Edmonton.

Jan 12 - 9:31 AM

Jussi Jokinen collected two assists in Sunday's 6-4 win over Toronto.

Both of his helpers came in Florida's third-period outburst when they scored four times to earn a comeback victory against the Leafs.

He has produced 19 points in 32 games this season.

Jussi Jokinen scored his fourth goal of the season on Monday against his former Pittsburgh teammates.

He amassed six shots on goal in a season-high 21:18 of ice time. Jokinen has 17 points in 31 games with the Panthers.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 10:27:00 AM

Jussi Jokinen is set to return to the Panthers lineup Monday night versus the Blue Jackets.

After missing their last game due to the flu, Jokinen is probable to return Monday night. He's off to a slow start in 2014 with just 12 points in 20 games for the Cats. His 18 penalty minutes this year is a surprising welcome to fantasy owners, however.

Jussi Jokinen appears to be over his bout with the flu.

He was back on the ice Sunday at practice after he missed Friday's game as a result of the illness. Jokinen, who is tied with Nick Bjugstad for the most points (12) on the team, is expected to play on Monday versus Columbus.

Jussi Jokinen (flu) will miss Friday's game.

Jokinen was previously believed to be doubtful for this contest. He has two goals and 12 points in 20 games in 2014-15. Consider him day-to-day.

Jussi Jokinen is battling the flu.

Jokinen is doubtful for Friday's game as a result. He has two goals and 10 assists in 20 games in 2014-15.
Fri, Nov 28, 2014 12:25:00 PM

Jussi Jokinen picked up two assists Sunday to give him five helpers in his last three games.

He has one goal and a team-leading 11 points in 15 matches. Jokinen also co-leads Florida's power play, along with Brian Campbell, at four points apiece.
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 08:10:00 AM

Jussi Jokinen may be one of the few Florida skaters who is earning his salary.

With his two assists against the Islanders Friday night he is tied with Aaron Ekblad at the top of the Panthers' scoring table with nine points in 14 games. Jokinen has always been a productive but underrated player. He would make a nice under-the-radar pick up.
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 10:06:00 AM

Jussi Jokinen was the only goal scorer for Florida in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to Boston.

The veteran was held pointless over his first five games of the season, but he has now caught fire and has generated at least a point in five straight contests. Brad Boyes and Aaron Ekblad drew assists on the first period marker.
Tue, Nov 4, 2014 09:52:00 PM

After not recodring a point in the Panthers' first five games of the season, Jussi Jokinen is now playing up to his potential.

Jokinen has registered five assists in the Cats' last four games and is playing the excellent hockey GM Dale Tallon expected when he signed the 31-year-old to a four-year deal. Jokinen is playing on the Panthers' first line and first power-play unit and is certainly rosterable.
