Description: Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen scored his first goal in nearly a month.
Insight: Jokinen has been a huge disappointment which was expected after leaving the high-flying Pittsburgh Penguins, where he played with Evgeni Malkin, for the Florida Panthers. Jokinen has three goals and 13 assists this season.
 
11/19/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen scored his second goal of the season during Tuesday's loss to the Kings.
Insight: He also had five shots on goal, and while he has not scored many goals, Jokinen does have 12 points in 16 games this season.
 
10/11/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen is enjoying his time on the team's top line with Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau according to Panthers.com.
Insight: Jokinen was one of the better skaters on the ice in Florida's season opener and effectively crashed the net. If there is a hole on your bench, Jokinen is worth considering.
 
9/16/2014 7:44:00 PM
Description: Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen is playing alongside fellow Finn Aleksander Barkov in training camp.
Insight: As excited as we are about the 19-year-old Aleksander Barkov, Jokinen will not be as productive this year as he was a season ago while playing with Penguins star Evgeni Malkin. Last season, Jokinen scored 21 goals, most since 2009-2010, and 36 assists, most since 2005-2006. Expect more like 15 goals and 25-30 assists this year. Jokinen saw top-six minutes for the Penguins last season and finished with 21 goals and 57 points, both his most since 2009-10. However, he'll go from having Evgeni Malkin as his center to 21-year-old Nick Bjugstad, 18-year-old Aleksander Barkov or fellow free agent signee Dave Bolland.
 
7/3/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: Jussi Jokinen will likely see a decrese in fantasy value after signing with the Florida Panthers Tuesday.
Insight: Jokinen saw top-six minutes for the Penguins last season and finished with 21 goals and 57 points, both his most since 2009-10. However, he'll go from having Evgeni Malkin as his center to 21-year-old Nick Bjugstad, 18-year-old Aleksander Barkov or fellow free agent signee Dave Bolland.
 
4/5/2014 3:23:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left wing Jussi Jokinen (undisclosed) will miss Saturday's game at Minnesota, according to Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviw.
Insight: Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said his injury is not serious but didn't specify further. Jokinen has 18 goals and 35 assists in 77 games this season.
 
3/25/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left wing Jussi Jokinen scored a power-play goal Tuesday against Phoenix.
Insight: With Evgeni Malkin out for 2-3 weeks, Jokinen (18 G, 33 A) is going to have to get more of his points with the man advantage. Ultimately, Malkin's absence will hurt Jokinen's value.
 
2/5/2014 4:09:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left wing Jussi Jokinen picked up five points in his last three games.
Insight: Jokinen has converted a top-six role with one of the best teams in the NHL into 41 points (16 goals), 128 SOG and 14 power-play points.
 
1/22/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left wing Jussi Jokinen knocked home two goals Wednesday in a win over Montreal.
Insight: It's Jokinen's third multi-goal effort of the season. He's scored six times since the start of January, which makes this Jokinen's most productive month of the 2013-14 campaign.
 
1/3/2014 9:46:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen had a pair of goals Friday against the Rangers.
Insight: With Pascal Dupuis out for the season, Jokinen is locked into a top-six role. However, he doesn't have the benefit of playing with Evgeni Malkin at the moment. The 30-year-old has 11 goals and 28 points in 43 games on the season.
 
11/30/2013 9:50:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen's goal Saturday against the Panthers was his first since Nov. 9.
Insight: Beau Bennett's leg injury opened the door for Jokinen to move back onto Evgeni Malkin's line, which definitely helps his fantasy value. The 30-year-old has nine goals and 18 points in 28 games.
 
10/25/2013 9:54:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen scored goal No. 5 Friday against the Islanders.
Insight: Jokinen has seven points in the first 10 games, including four power-play points. His value will drop off when James Neal returns and bumps him off the top power-play unit, but Neal will miss at least one more week.
 
10/8/2013 9:54:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen's hat trick helped the Pens beat Carolina, 5-2, Tuesday night.
Insight: Jokinen had two power-play goals in the game and should remain on the top PP line until James Neal returns.
 
9/22/2013 11:35:00 AM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen could play on the team's second line with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal this season. SOURCE: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: He'll have to hold off the organization's top forward prospect, Beau Bennett. Jokinen, who had a hat trick in Saturday's preseason game, had seven goals and 11 points in 10 games with the Penguins after coming over in a trade with the Hurricanes last season. If he locks down a spot with Malkin and Neal, he could have a big year.
 
5/4/2013 4:35:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen was moved to the fourth line due to the return of Sidney Crosby in Game 2.
Insight: Jokinen filled in admirably for Crosby, producing seven goals and 11 points in 10 games after coming over to Pittsburgh from Carolina. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the switch does not reflect any unhappiness on the part of Dan Bylsma with Jokinen's performance, but rather is a testimony to Jokinen's versatility. "When and if you play a reduced amount of minutes, you're not as in the game as much, you're not on the ice as much," Bylsma said. "You have to be mentally prepared for those situations, and I think Jussi's actually done already that for us."
 
5/2/2013 4:46:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen left Game 1 against the Islanders in the third period, but he participated in Thursday's practice.
Insight: Jokinen appeared to injure his ankle Wednesday, but it looks like he'll play in Game 2. We'll let you know if anything changes.
 
Hot4/27/2013 10:37:00 PM
Description: Penguins left wing Jussi Jokinen found the net twice Saturday in an 8-3 win over Carolina.
Insight: That gives Jokinen four goals in his last five games. His strong play over the last month has helped Pittsburgh stay competitive without Sidney Crosby.
 
4/20/2013 9:29:00 PM
Description: Center Jussi Jokinen has four goals and eight points in six games since joining Pittsburgh.
Insight: Jokinen was a nonfactor in Carolina, but he has taken over for the injured Sidney Crosby since coming over to the Penguins and should be owned in all leagues.
 
4/11/2013 10:27:00 PM
Description: Jussi Jokinen has three goals and five points in three games since joining Pittsburgh.
Insight: Jokinen has stepped into Sidney Crosby's spot on the top line with Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz.
 
4/3/2013 6:10:00 PM
Description: Jussi Jokinen will start in Sidney Crosby's spot between Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis when he joins the team, coach Dan Bylsma confirmed. SOURCE: Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Insight: Tyler Kennedy was expected to fill that spot but he will move back to the wing. Jokinen, who was acquired from Carolina on Wednesday, has six goals and 11 points in 33 games this season but his new spot makes him an attractive add for fantasy owners. He could shift to the fourth line when Crosby returns, however.
