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, LW, FLA

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.

Pens' Jokinen Scores With Three Points Thursday

News: Jussi Jokinen netted a power-play goal and added two assists in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen is helping fantasy owners like an elite option. With seven goals and 13 points in 12 January tilts, he's averaging better than a point per game. He's one of many strong starts on a high-octane Pittsburgh offense.

Pens' Jokinen Doubles Up Wednesday

News: Jussi Jokinen tallied two goals Wednesday in a 5-1 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: He has six goals and 10 points in eight January tilts. Jussi Jokinen, who's clicking with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal, continues to make a strong case for a raise. After 2013-14, the forward will be an unrestricted free agent.

Pens' Jokinen On Scoring Binge

News: Jussi Jokinen scored one goal and assisted on another in Pittsburgh's 4-3 win over Washington on Wednesday.
Analysis: Jussi Jokinen has rung up four goals in six January games after scoring one goal in his previous 25 contests. In addition to his 13-goal total, Jokinen also has 21 assists, fourth-most on the Penguins.

Pens' Jokinen Racking Up Points

News: Jussi Jokinen posted his third consecutive two-point effort on Tuesday, dishing two assists in a shootout win over Vancouver.
Analysis: He's split his six points over the last three games evenly between goals and assists, and going back has tallied a quite lovely nine points in his last six contests. Jussi Jokinen's been a reliable producer for the Penguins whenever he's seen consistent ice time, and he's been over 15 minutes in each of the last eight games.

Jokinen Brace Guides Pittsburgh

News: Jussi Jokinen scored twice in PIttsburgh's 5-3 win over the Rangers, giving him five points in the last four games.
Analysis: The recent stat line is deceptive as he had gone pointless in the Pens' two games before Friday. Jussi Jokinen is a versatile player who fills many roles for the Penguins but won't see a ton of offensive chances.

Pens' Jokinen With Big Friday

News: Jussi Jokinen tallied three assists Friday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He hasn't scored a goal since November, but it's doubtful fantasy owners are complaining after Friday's performance. Jussi Jokinen also netted a hat trick against his former Carolina teammates earlier in the year -- something to keep in mind when the teams play each other again.

Pens' Jokinen Promoted On PP Saturday

News: Jussi Jokinen tallied two power-play assists in Saturday's victory over Detroit.
Analysis: With Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang both out because of injuries, Jussi Jokinen was promoted to the team's top power-play unit. The versatile forward now has nine goals and 21 points in 34 contests, including nine (3G, 6A) on the man advantage.

Pens' Jokinen Play Center Thursday

News: Jussi Jokinen is expected to switch from right wing to center on Pittsburgh's second line Thursday with Evgeni Malkin sidelined, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: The unit will likely feature James Neal on left wing, Jussi Jokinen down the middle and either Chuck Kobasew or Jayson Megna at right wing.

Pens' Jokinen Picks Up Two Points Monday

News: Jussi Jokinen tallied a pair of helpers in Monday's OT loss to Boston.
Analysis: Bump Jussi Jokinen's fantasy back up with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal playing so well. Beau Bennett will miss at least the next two months, meaning that Jokinen will likely see steady top-six minutes again after being demoted to the third line one week ago.

Jokinen Moves Back To Pens' Second Line Friday

News: Jussi Jokinen moved back into a top-six role Friday after Beau Bennett left the game with an injury.
Analysis: Along with James Neal, Jussi Jokinen picked up a helper on Evgeni Malkin's first goal in more than a month. His fantasy value would get a bump up if he sticks with Malkin, especially now that the Russian center is again scoring goals.

Pens' Jokinen Set To See Third-Line Duty

News: Jussi Jokinen skated on Pittsburgh's third line Monday during the team's game-day skate.
Analysis: He has five points in seven November games, but the team is looking to shake things up. Jussi Jokinen has the versatility to play on different lines with different players and will work with Brandon Sutter for the time being. There's a good chance he'll be back on a top-two line at some point, so there's no reason to panic -- at least not right now.
