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.
Nov 14 - 7:23 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.

Jussi Jokinen will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Penguins.

Jokinen is off to an awfully slow start this season, as he's picked up just one assist in seven games. It's the first time he serves as a healthy scratch this season. Anton Slepyshev and Eric Gryba will also watch the game from the press box.

Jussi Jokinen centered the fourth line in practice Sunday between Iiro Pakarinen and Anton Slepyshev.

There is some skill on this line with Slepyshev slated to eventually be a top-six forward. This may help Jokinen offensively although he still is not fantasy-relevant.
Oct 16 - 8:05 AM

Jussi Jokinen scored a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Jokinen signed a one-year deal with the Oilers this offseason. He'll be relied upon to add some veteran depth to a young, skilled team. The 34-year-old had 11 goals and 28 points in 69 games with the Panthers last season. Don't expect him to have any fantasy value this season.
Sep 20 - 11:53 PM

Jussi Jokinen, who signed with the Oilers on Friday, is very familiar with Oilers top prospect Jesse Puljujarvi.

Jokinen is a part owner of the Finnish league squad Karpat, which Puljujarvi played for before making the transition to North American hockey. "I’ve been practising with Jesse for three years in the summer. I know all about him, his potential. He’s still a young guy, learning how to be an NHL player. Hopefully, I’ll be able to help him," said Jokinen. There's a decent chance that Puljujarvi will find his way onto the Oilers' opening game roster and it's even possible that the two will begin the season on a line together.
Jul 8 - 5:01 AM

Jussi Jokinen signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers.

Jokinen was available after the Florida Panthers bought out the final season of his four-year, $16 million contract. He's coming off a rough season where he was limited to 11 goals and 28 points in 69 games, but he had 60 points in 2015-16. This might prove to be a steal for the Oilers.
Jul 7 - 12:45 PM

The Florida Panthers have officially bought out Jussi Jokinen.

That move was expected after the Panthers put Jokinen on unconditional waivers on Friday. He had one season left on his four-year, $16 million contract. He was limited to 11 goals and 28 points in 69 contests in 2016-17.

Jussi Jokinen is on unconditional waivers.

This is presumably the Florida's setting everything up to buy out Jokinen's contract. He would be going into the final season of a four-year, $16 million deal. Jokinen had just 11 goals and 28 points in 69 contests in 2016-17.
Jun 30 - 12:29 PM

Jussi Jokinen is dealing with an MCL injury, but it's believed that he won't require surgery.

He didn't play in the last three games of the season and won't play in the IIHF World Championships due to some lingering issues that he is rehabbing through.
