Jussi Jokinen and the Panthers were held off the scoresheet in a 1-0 loss to the Senators Monday night.

Jokinen has yet to record a point in three contests as a member of the Panthers, however he continues to garner top-line minutes playing alongside young upstarts Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov so there should still be reason for optimism. He registered two shots on goal in 15:25 of ice time in Monday's loss.

Jussi Jokinen is playing on the Panthers' top line alongside Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau.

Jokinen seemingly enjoyed his first game with the Cats' two young stars Thursday night in the Panthers' 3-2 loss to Tampa. He was one of the game's better players and was dangerous around the Lightning net. If you have an opening, you could do worse than picking up Jokinen.

Jussi Jokinen has been paired with fellow Finn Aleksander Barkov during the early days of training camp.

Jokinen has been occupying the left wing. "Obviously, the Finnish connection, you'd like to have them together," said Panthers coach Gerard Gallant. "But we'll see how things go in the lineup and see how they play." Jokinen is expected to help Florida on the power play and in shootouts this season after he inked a four-year, $16 million contract on the first day of free agency.

The Florida Panthers have signed Jussi Jokinen to a four-year, $16 million contract.

Jokinen got a second chance with Pittsburgh after Carolina soured on him and he made the most of it. He had 21 goals and 57 points in 81 games in 2013-14. He should get top-six minutes in Florida and is a fair bet to surpass the 50-point mark again next season.

Jussi Jokinen will probably test the unrestricted free agent waters, according to Penguins GM Jim Rutherford.

Jokinen had 21 goals and 57 points in 81 games in 2013-14, so he'll do well for himself on the open market. Pittsburgh's in a tough cap position as it is, so it's not surprising that they couldn't meet his demands.
