Olli Jokinen C WPG 3 Months
Olli Jokinen will need to produce this season if he's going to get the same amount of ice time he last year.
He averaged 17:07 of ice time per game during the lockout-shortened season largely due to the fact that coach Claude Noel didn't feel comfortable giving those minutes to his other players. If Jokinen continues to struggle then he could get bumped down the lineup, especially since Mark Scheifele is projected to push for a roster spot. Scheifele could be a good fit alongside Evander Kane and newcomer Devin Setoguchi this campaign. Jokinen feels like he has what it takes to bounce back and he'll need to do that in order to stay in Winnipeg's top-six group.

Olli Jokinen will continue to rest and rehab his ankle injury during the off-season.
He won't require surgery after sustaining a high-ankle sprain late in the 2013 campaign. Jokinen had a disappointing first year with the Jets after he was brought in with the hope of anchoring the team's top line. He notched seven goals and seven assists, while picking up a minus-19 rating, in 45 games.

Olli Jokinen scored a pair of goals Tuesday night.
He has seven points in 19 games this season to go with a team-worst minus-10 rating. Jokinen is currently playing on Winnipeg's third line with James Wright and Anthony Peluso, which is not what the team envisioned when they signed him as an unrestricted free agent last summer.

Olli Jokinen has gone without scoring a point in seven straight games.
The veteran center hasn't even registered a shot in his past two contests, which doesn't bode well for an end to his recent cold streak either. Jokinen was projected to be a top-six addition to the Jets' offensive picture this season after signing a two-year, $9 million contract with the organization last summer. However, he has been playing on the third line of late and has scored only four points in 14 matches.

Olli Jokinen has recorded just two goals and two assists in his first 12 games with the Winnipeg Jets.
The Jets added Jokinen as their top free-agent addition during the summer and he has sputtered out of the gate so far. He started the year without a point in four prior to getting all four of his points during a three-game span. Since then he hasn't had a goal or an assist in five consecutive contests.
