Jussi Jokinen LW FLA 13 Hrs

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.

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.

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.

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.

It seems that 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.

Jokinen is battling the flu and is unlikely to play Friday against the Senators, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

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.

Jokinen has not recorded a single point in his last four games and has only recorded two shots on goal.

Although he has gone dry in the last four games, 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.
