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.
 
4/3/2013 4:53:00 PM
Description: The Penguins have acquired veteran center Jussi Jokinen from the Carolina Hurricanes for a conditional draft pick, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN.
Insight: Jokinen has six goals and 11 points in 33 games this season. He's not a must-add at this time but could build up some fantasy value with Sidney Crosby out of action.
 
3/5/2013 10:45:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes forward Jussi Jokinen had a goal, an assist, two SOG and a plus-1 differential Tuesday against the Sabres.
Insight: Jokinen only had four points in January and February combined but he already has three goals and five points with 10 SOG in three games this month. We'll continue to track his production to see if he becomes a viable option to fantasy owners.
 
3/2/2013 10:25:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes left wing Jussi Jokinen delivered his best fantasy performance of the season Saturday in a win over Florida (two goals, one assist, +2).
Insight: Jokinen only had four points all season prior to Saturday's game. We're going to need a few more outings like this before we're convinced that Jokinen is a legitimate fantasy option.
 
11/1/2011 10:37:00 PM
Description: Jussi Jokinen left Tuesday's game with an injury, although Hurricanes coach Paul Maurice downplayed the injury after the game. Raleigh News & Observer
Insight: Fantasy owners who have been relying on Jokinen for some decent production (8 points in 11 games) should consider him day-to-day for now.
 
6/30/2011 2:26:00 PM
Description: The Carolina Hurricanes have re-signed Jussi Jokinen to a three-year contract worth $3 million per season. TSN
Insight: Jokinen has been an underrated scorer since being picked up from the Tampa Bay Lightning. He has reached 50 points over the past two seasons for the Hurricanes, so he deserves attention in fantasy leagues.
