Preds Ink Jokinen To One-Year Deal

News: Olli Jokinen signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Predators on Wednesday, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen could be pegged for a second-line center role with the Preds, after racking up 18 goals and 25 assists over 82 games with the Jets last season. He's also shown some moxie on the defensive end, registering 120 hits and 62 penalty minutes in 2013-14.

Jets' Jokinen Playing Hot Of Late

News: Olli Jokinen managed to post an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 win over Colorado.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen now has five points in his last five games. He now has 40 points on the year and has bounced back nicely from a horrible 48-game schedule last season. He's a fantasy option in deeper leagues if you need a fill in.

Three-Point Night For Jets' Jokinen

News: Olli Jokinen had a goal and two assists in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen played a prominent role in the Jets' highest-scoring game of the season, netting his first goal 29 seconds into the second period to give the team a 4-2 lead, and then finding Dustin Byfuglien for the next two scores. The 35-year-old has seen his productivity drop a notch or two the last couple of seasons, but with 39 points in 69 games, he still qualifies as a productive depth forward in deeper leagues.

Jokinen Lone Man On Scoreboard For Jets

News: Olli Jokinen scored the Jets' only goal in Thursday's loss to the Kings.
Analysis: That's points in three straight for Olli Jokinen, who's delivered 15 goals and 35 points this year, making him a useful player in deeper formats -- and likely at very minimal cost to his owners.

Jets' Jokinen Scores Goal Friday

News: Olli Jokinen scored a goal in Friday's semifinal loss to Sweden.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen netted a goal in his only shot in Friday's game and has been contributing offensively for Finland throughout the Olympics. Team Finland will face Team USA in Saturday's bronze medal game.

Jets' Jokinen Notches Two Points For Finland

News: Olli Jokinen contributed a goal and assist in Finland's 6-1 romp over Norway on Friday.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen has three points in two games for Finland, giving him 18 in 20 over his Olympic career. He's also enjoying a nice bounce-back campaign for the Jets after struggling throughout 2012-13, doubling his scoring while playing only 15 more games.

Jets' Jokinen: Goals In Three Of Four

News: Olli Jokinen scored for the third time in the last four games and added an assist in Thursday's win over Calgary.
Analysis: Two of those three goals -- including Thursday's -- have come on the power play, accounting for both of Olli Jokinen's man-advantage tallies on the year. He's seen his power-play time ramp up significantly recently, and the fact that he's delivered some production there should keep him on the top unit for a while.

Jets' Jokinen Scores 11th Goal

News: Olli Jokinen scored in the first period of Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen also finished with a minus-3 rating on the night. He's more of a depth player at this stage in his career, but it should be noted he has points in three of his last four games.

Jets' Jokinen Tallies Two Points In Win

News: Olli Jokinen scored his ninth goal of the season and added an assist in a win over the Wild on Friday. He now has four points in his last four games.
Analysis: Though he is no longer the elite producer he once was, Olli Jokinen still remains a decent contributor in fantasy hockey. He has now collected 25 points in 40 games this season while averaging 16:30 of ice time.

Jets' Jokinen Notches Three Points

News: Olli Jokinen scored two goals, including the game-winner, and added an assist Monday against the Rangers. He was also a plus-3.
Analysis: These are Olli Jokinen's first goals in six games. He has six goals and 17 points in 29 games on the year.

Jets' Jokinen Adds Two Points In Win

News: Olli Jokinen scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's win over the Predators.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen played a prominent role in the Jets' four-goal first period, scoring his third goal of the season seven minutes in and finding Devin Setoguchi for another score after wining a faceoff 10 minutes later. He was awarded the game's second star for his contributions.

Jets' Jokinen Scores In Victory

News: Olli Jokinen notched his second goal of the season in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Blues.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen now has two goals in his last three games to go with a plus-1 rating. It's good to see him playing well after an atrocious shortened season last year that saw him score only seven times in 45 games. Though it won't count on the fantasy scoresheet, Jokinen scored the game-winning goal in the shootout as well.

Jets' Jokinen Scores Two Points In Friday's Win

News: Olli Jokinen scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: Though most of the Jets' production came from their second line Friday, Olli Jokinen made sure the third line got involved, scoring a go-ahead goal in the second period and assisting on Devin Setoguchi's score in the third. Jokinen appears to be moving at full strength after he was laid up for nearly two months during the offseason with a high ankle sprain.

Jets' Jokinen Out 6-8 Weeks

News: Olli Jokinen will be out 6-8 weeks with a high ankle sprain that he sustained Saturday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen, who has seven goals and 14 points in 45 games this season with a minus-19 rating, is obviously done for the regular season and a good chunk of the playoffs (that is, if the Jets qualify) as a result.

Jets' Jokinen Leaves With Lower-Body Injury

News: Olli Jokinen left Saturday's contest with a lower body injury and will not return.
Analysis: Consider Olli Jokinen day-to-day for now and circle back around for further updates if you are relying on him for your fantasy playoffs.

Jets' Jokinen Producing Consistently Again?

News: Olli Jokinen had an assist in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Monday night.
Analysis: The veteran center had three hits, won nine of 13 face-offs and was a minus-1 with just under 19-minutes of play. One of Finland's finest natives could be warming up as Olli Jokinen has two goals and an assist in his last four games.

Jokinen Scores Jets' Only Goal

News: Olli Jokinen scored the only Winnipeg goal Saturday in a 3-1 loss to Carolina.
Analysis: It's just his seventh goal and 11th point of the season (in 36 games) which is a far cry from his outstanding resurgence in Calgary in 2010-11 and 2011-12. Right now, he's not a viable fantasy option, particularly with his minus-17 rating.

Jets' Jokinen Punishes Former Team

News: Olli Jokinen scored two goals on five shots in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen was a bust for New York three years ago, recording just four goals and 15 points in 26 games before being shipped off to Calgary, but he certainly enjoyed this trip to Madison Square Garden. The goals came without much degree of difficulty, as both times Anthony Peluso found Jokinen on passes that gave him a ton of net to shoot at. Despite the big night, Jokinen's in the midst of another brutal season, as he has just seven points and a minus-10 rating through 19 games.

Jets' Jokinen Snaps Points Drought At Nine Games

News: Olli Jokinen scored his third goal of the season in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen's goal represented just his fifth point in 19 games this season. If you couple that with the fact he has one point on the power play this season to go with minus-10 rating, it's easy to see that Jokinen's best days are probably behind him. Although it may be tough to drop someone that probably got drafted in the middle rounds particularly in deeper leagues, the fact the team is struggling and that father time may indeed be catching up to Jokinen means cutting him is a smart move, despite the fact his goal on Saturday may provide you with a glimmer of hope.

Jets' Jokinen Shut Out Again In Loss To Bruins

News: Olli Jokinen did not register a point or a shot in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen has now gone seven straight games without a point and it looks like his days as a fantasy staple at the center position are behind him. The former third overall pick in the 1997 draft has just four points in 14 games this season after managing 61 points in 82 games with the Calgary Flames last year.

Jets' Jokinen Points In Three Straight

News: Olli Jokinen netted his second goal of the season in a 6-3 loss to the Panthers on Thursday night.
Analysis: In his prime, Olli Jokinen could get you 60-70 points in a season, pick up some penalty minutes and flirt with 30+ goals each season. These days he's in the second tier of centers in the league. That said he can still put up solid numbers offensively and is still a valuable part of a well rounded fantasy roster.

Jets' Jokinen Scores First Goal Tuesday

News: Olli Jokinen played a great game in a losing effort on Tuesday against the Canadiens, as he tallied his first goal as a Jet and set up another one.
Analysis: He looked very comfortable out there, perhaps gaining confidence in the new system. Olli Jokinen set up countless great scoring chances for teammates, and went plus-1 with five shots while winning more than than 50 percent of his faceoffs.

Jets' Jokinen Picks Up First Point With Winnipeg

News: Olli Jokinen had the primary assist on Evander Kane's game-winning goal Sunday in the Jet's' win over the Isles, finally putting him on the scoresheet.
Analysis: Although he has yet to find the back of the net, maybe just getting that big setup to win the game will get the big Finnish center going. The Jet's acquired Olli Jokinen to run the top line and he really needs to get on track to help make this team a serious contender.

Jets' Jokinen Having Scoreless Start

News: Olli Jokinen has been scoreless so far in his team's first three games.
Analysis: Olli Jokinen signed a two-year deal with the Jets this offseason but has yet to notch a point so far this season. Jokinen had 61 points last season with the Flames and was in consideration for the first line but until he begins to produce, he will remain behind center Bryan Little.

Jokinen Signs With Winnipeg

News: Olli Jokinen (abdomen) signed a two-year, $9 million deal with Winnipeg on Monday, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.
Analysis: The landing spot for Olli Jokinen is a little surprising, but the veteran center that never quite lives up to his potential should slot in as Winnipeg's top center. Jokinen had 61 points this past season - mostly beside Jarome Iginla - and he cracked the 20-goal season for the first time in a while. Don't jump on him early, but he's a decent late-round pick.
