Jokinen scored a power play goal in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Senators.

The team's second leading assister was aggressive all night, tying a season high with six shots on goal and was rewarded for his efforts with a tally on the power play. With the back injury to Nick Bjugstad, players such as Jokinen will have to step up to fill the void left by the team's leading goal scorer. Jokinen's fantasy value has ticked up over the past week and looks like a strong pickup to close out the season.

Jokinen scored for the seventh time this season in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Lightning.

The goal was Jokinen's first since Feb. 24, though he's picked up eight assists in that time. Jokinen's 40 points are third on the team and this is the seventh time in his career he's reached the 40-point threshold while racking up 30 or more assists. Jokinen still has some gas in the tank and will need to be an important piece for the Panthers' stretch-run and could be a nice late-season addition for fantasy owners.

Jokinen added an assist n the Panthers' 2-1 shootout victory over the Bruins on Saturday.

Jokinen leads the team in assists with 33 with just six goals and is the reverse of Brandon Pirri, who has 17 goals and just two assists. Jokinen's role as a facilitator has been huge for the Panthers as his line-mates have certainly benefitted from Jokinen's distribution. He is an intriguing play in daily leagues and leagues of all sizes as a steady source of assists.

Jokinen picked up an assist in Saturday night's 2-0 win over the Hurricanes.

Jokinen picked up another assist on Saturday night, making it four straight games with an assist. He now has seven points (no goals, seven assists) in his last seven games. He now leads the team with 31 assists and his keen passing eye has made him a good fantasy play down the stretch. If he can keep up this production in the team's final run of games, he will be valuable to fantasy owners in any league depth.

Jokinen dished out three helpers in Saturday's come-from-behind win over the Sabres.

The Juice was all over the place in this one, bringing his assist total to 28 on the year. His six goals are way off the 21 he put up last season with Pittsburgh -- which is somewhat expected considering he was surrounded by studs like Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and James Neal there -- but Jokinen is just 10 assists shy of his career-best 38 from his rookie season in Dallas, so there's value to be had here. The Panthers are going to need all hands on deck if they hope to catch -- and fend off -- the Boston Bruins for the final playoff spot in the East, so look for Jokinen to play set-up man for leading goal scorer Nick Bjugstad, 17-goal linemate Jimmy Hayes, and maybe even the newly-acquired Jaromir Jagr, who knows a thing or two about scoring with 716 career goals to his credit.

Jokinen found the back of the net for his sixth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Blackhawks.

Jokinen has 31 points on the season but just six goals. After a career year last season where he had 21 goals and 36 assists, Jokinen's point scoring has dropped off dramatically since joining the Panthers. While he has some value in deeper leagues, most nights he is too inconsistent to merit a roster spot unless he goes on a hot streak.

Jokinen picked up a power-play goal in the first period and added an assist in the second period in the Panthers' 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.The goal was Jokinen's first since Dec. 22 and his first power-play goal of the season. The assist was Jokinen's 25th of the year, which leads the team. His presence on a power-play line gives him more value and is worth a look in deeper leagues as the Panthers continue their playoff push.

Jokinen picked up an assist in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

The 31-year-old hasn't produced a goal since Dec. 22, and the nine assists he's provided during that drought aren't enough to make up for it. Jokinen remains off the radar outside of deeper formats.

Jokinen assisted on a pair of goals in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

Jokinen is getting into a little bit of the groove in the new year, picking up four points in his last four games. With 18 assists through 39 contests, the 31-year-old is on pace to challenge his career-high mark of 38 assists from his rookie season though he won't come anywhere close to his personal-best of 30 goals. He's had a decent season with 22 points through 39 games, and could be worthy of consideration in deeper leagues.

Jokinen dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Maple Leafs.

Jokinen now has 19 points (four goals) in 32 games on the season. Currently skating on the third line, the 31-year-old has been an inconsistent fantasy option thus far, twice going five straight games without recording a point. He's likely to hit the 50-point mark in 2014-15, though, making him a decent play in deeper formats.
