Panthers' Jokinen Returns To The Lineup

News: Jussi Jokinen returned to the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jackets. He finished with two shots on goal with a minus-1 rating in 15:08 minutes of ice time.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen was ineffective in his first game back since being out of the lineup with an illness. He also lost his spot on the top power play unit where he has been for the majority of the season. Look for him to get back in the swing of things soon and hopefully work his way back on the No. 1 unit.

Panthers' Jokinen (Illness) Will Travel With Team

News: Jussi Jokinen (illness) is expected to travel with the team for their game against Columbus on Monday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: It seems that Jussi Jokinen is in line to play against the Blue Jackets on Monday, although it won't be official until he takes the ice for the morning skate in Columbus. If for some reason he's still too ill to play, expect Jimmy Hayes to factor into the lineup.

Panthers' Jokinen Likely Out With Flu Friday

News: Jussi Jokinen is battling the flu and is unlikely to play Friday against the Senators, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen wasn't present at Friday's morning skate, so barring a dramatic recovery over the afternoon, it appears that he'll sit out for the first time this season. The veteran winger could probably benefit from the rest in any case, as he's cooled considerably since his hot start in November, going without a point and producing a minus-3 rating over his last four games. Jimmy Hayes figures to rejoin the lineup in Jokinen's place.

Jussi Jokinen, LW, FLA Panthers' Jokinen Pointless In Last Four Games

Jussi Jokinen

Panthers' Jokinen Pointless In Last Four Games

News: Jussi Jokinen has not recorded a single point in his last four games and has only recorded two shots on goal.
Analysis: Although he has gone dry in the last four games, Jussi Jokinen is currently tied for the team lead in points with 12 (2G, 10A). Jokinen has found himself playing on the third line for most of the season, but his value comes on the power play, where he is averaging 2:45 minutes per game. He leads the team with four PP points and is second on the team with 18 PIM. Jokinen's career shooting percentage is 13.1% and this season he is only sitting at 6.5%, therefore his goal scoring totals should increase while his percentages move toward his career average.

Panthers' Jokinen Scores Goal In 5-2 Loss

News: Jussi Jokinen scored a goal, had two penalty minutes, and put five shots on goal in a 5-2 loss to the Kings on Tuesday.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen continued his strong play Tuesday and with the goal, he stretched his point streak to four games. During that span he has one goal and five assists to go along with a plus-4 rating. Leaving Pittsburgh as a free agent, most analysts believed Jokinen would not be able to duplicate his 57 points in 81 games last season because he would not be slotted beside Evgeni Malkin. Jokinen is on pace for 62 points this season and has become a leader on the Panthers instead of playing in the shadows of others.

11/16/2014

Jussi Jokinen, LW, FLA Panthers' Jokinen Has Another Two-Assist Game

Jussi Jokinen

Panthers' Jokinen Has Another Two-Assist Game

News: Jussi Jokinen dished out two assists for the second straight game in Sunday's win over Anaheim.
Analysis: Since when has being dropped to the third line been a good thing? Jussi Jokinen now has five points -- all assists -- in his last three games, skating with Vincent Trocheck and Jimmy Hayes on the third line. Jokinen still plays on the top power-play unit, and has recorded eleven points (one goal) in 15 games on the season. He's worth a look, as the Panthers are producing all kinds of offense and have gotten points in 10 of their last 12 games.

Jokinen Produces Two Assists In Florida's 4-3 Loss

News: Jussi Jokinen registered two assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 with four shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Since Jussi Jokinen was moved off the top line and starting playing on the third line with Jimmy Hayes and Vincent Trochek two games ago, he has produced three assists with five shots on goal and a plus-3 rating. The newly formed "third" line has been excellent so far and Jokinen is still playing with the top power play unit.

Jokinen Moves To Florida's Third Line In Practice

News: Jussi Jokinen has been moved down to the third line during Monday's practice ahead of Tuesday's game against the Sharks, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen leads the Panthers with six points (1G, 5A) but has gone dry over the last two games with a minus-3 rating. This could be a move to balance out Florida's attack or a message is being sent to Jokinen for the past two games for his mediocre play. Coach Gerard Gallant has been changing the lines often this season, so this stint on the third line could change quickly.

Panthers' Jokinen Scores To Extend Point Streak

News: Jussi Jokinen scored the only goal for Florida -- and his first of the year -- in a 2-1 OT loss against the Bruins Tuesday.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen's point streak now stands at five games and six points (the goal and five assists). He centered the top line Tuesday because of the injury to Aleksander Barkov. Usually a winger, Jokinen seemed to fit in well between alongside Brad Boyes and Tomas Fleischmann. If Barkov is unable to suit up for the Panthers' next contest, expect Jokinen to play center again. Regardless of his position, he should be in your lineups while he's hot.

Panthers' Jokinen Continues Assist Streak

News: Jussi Jokinen collected a helper in Saturday's win over the Flyers, marking his fourth consecutive game with an assist.
Analysis: It's a only a modest run of production for Jussi Jokinen, but there's value to be had in that in deeper leagues. The 31-year-old winger seems unlikely to surpass the 36 points and plus-12 rating he compiled with a stronger Penguins squad in 2013-14, but his five points and plus-3 rating through nine games with his new squad are certainly nothing to scoff at.

Panthers' Jokinen Nets Pair Of Assists In OT Win

News: Jussi Jokinen had two helpers in an overtime win against Colorado on Tuesday, with the second coming on a game-winning power-play goal.
Analysis: These were Jussi Jokinen's first points of the season. Off to a tough start this year, the Panthers have been mixing their lines almost every game to try to find a formula that works. Jokinen started on the second line with Brandon Pirri and Tomas Fleischmann on Tuesday. When Florida acquired Jokinen in the offseason, they hoped that he could bring them the offensive punch that generated 57 points in 81 games for the Penguins last season, so they'll be looking for him to pick up the pace as the season continues.

Jokinen Signs With Panthers

News: The Panthers have signed Jussi Jokinen to a four-year, $16 million deal, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The 31-year-old, who racked up 57 points in 81 games with the Penguins this past season, figures to see big minutes up front for a rebuilding Panthers squad this coming season. He'll give the team some much-needed scoring punch following a 2013-14 campaign in which Nick Bjugstad led the squad with a meager 38 points.

Jokinen Scores, But Pens Get Eliminated

News: Jussi Jokinen tallied his seventh goal of the playoffs Tuesday against the Rangers, but it was the Pens' only goal as the dropped Game 7 by a 2-1 margin.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist turned away countless spectacular opportunities in this one, with only Jussi Jokinen able to beat him after a bad bounce off a Ranger created a big rebound that the Finnish forward fired home. He finishes the playoffs with 10 points in 13 games after a 57-point regular season.

Pens' Jokinen Stays Red Hot Wednesday

News: Jussi Jokinen ran his playoff point streak to eight games with an even-strength goal against the Rangers in Game 4 on Wednesday.
Analysis: The versatile forward continues to give his team surprising offensive production. Jussi Jokinen has scored six goals and nine points in 10 postseason contests. His longest point streak of the regular season was five games, which he accomplished to close out the schedule in April.

Pens' Jokinen Getting It Done

News: Jussi Jokinen netted a power-play goal Sunday, giving him points in seven of Pittsburgh's eight playoff games.
Analysis: He now has four goals and seven points in the postseason. The Pens haven't moved him down from the second line -- even as the team's health situation has improved, as was speculated. Jussi Jokinen continues to give fantasy owners consistent offensive production.

Jokinen Grabs Pittsburgh Winner

News: Jussi Jokinen scored the winning goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over Columbus in Game 5 of the Metropolitan Division semifinals, giving him a point in each of the last three games.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen has been busy for the Pens as they look to close out Columbus on Monday in Game 6. He's been quietly productive this series with two goals, and should see plenty of scoring chances by proxy being in the Pens' top six.

Jussi Jokinen

Pens' Jokinen Stays Hot Wednesday

News: Jussi Jokinen scored his first goal of the playoffs Wednesday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Columbus seems to be targeting the forward, physically, in an effort to slow him down. Jussi Jokinen, who has three goals and 11 points in 20 games against the Blue Jackets, finished the regular season with goals in three straight games and carried over his hot play in Game 1.

Pens' Jokinen Finishes Season On High Note

News: Jussi Jokinen extended his goal-scoring streak to three games Sunday with a power-play marker against Ottawa.
Analysis: The forward also ran his point streak to five games (3G, 2A) to close out the regular season. Jussi Jokinen recorded 21 goals and 57 points in 81 games, little over a year after the rest of the NHL passed over the Finnish product while he was on waivers.

Pens' Jokinen Reaches 20-Goal Plateau Saturday

News: Jussi Jokinen reached the 20-goal plateau for just the second time in nine NHL seasons Saturday.
Analysis: He has 56 points in 80 games, settling in as one of the few consistent and healthy Penguins in 2013-14. When and if the team welcomes back Evgeni Malkin, there's a chance Jussi Jokinen could move to a third line for the playoffs, but Pittsburgh has had little success staying healthy.

Jussi Jokinen

Jokinen Returns to Pittsburgh Lineup

News: Jussi Jokinen (upper body) will return to the Pittsburgh lineup Sunday against the Avs.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen's return to the Pittsburgh forward corps Sunday will be a welcome one, with both Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz now slated to miss the contest.

Jussi Jokinen

Injury Extent Unknown For Pens' Jokinen

News: Pens coach Dan Bylsma said Jussi Jokinen's upper-body injury is "not long term at this point."
Analysis: Bylsma left the door open, at the very least, for Jussi Jokinen to miss at least Sunday's game in Colorado.

Penguins' Jokinen Out Saturday

News: Jussi Jokinen will miss Saturday's game against the Wild due to an upper-body injury that coach Dan Bylsma does not consider serious, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen is presumably day-to-day, but the Pens are gearing up for the playoffs and won't take any risks, so it wouldn't be surprising if the veteran winger were to miss another game.

Pens' Jokinen Has Fantasy-Friendly Thursday

News: Jussi Jokinen registered his first multi-point game since January with two assists Thursday against Detroit.
Analysis: When his center, Evgeni Malkin, starts burying the biscuit like he did Thursday, linemates like Jussi Jokinen and James Neal figure to benefit. There's talk that Pittsburgh might try Jokinen on the third line with Marcel Goc when Beau Bennett returns, but for now, he's safely ensconced in Pittsburgh's top six.

Pens' Jokinen Breaks Goalless Drought Tuesday

News: Jussi Jokinen scored his 17th goal -- and first in 11 games -- Tuesday against Washington.
Analysis: The Pittsburgh second-liner is a streaky goal scorer. He had six assists (four on the power play) in his last 10 games, but his goal Tuesday gives him four game-winners -- an added bonus in some fantasy leagues.

Penguins' Jokinen Scores Goal

News: Jussi Jokinen scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's bronze medal win over Team USA.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen notched two points as Team Finland bounced back from a loss to Sweden to secure a medal. Jokinen recorded three shots on goal in the contest in a rout of Team USA.
