Olli Jokinen factors to be a key member of the Jets' offense when the NHL season begins.

He inked a two-year, $9 million contract with Winnipeg in the summer and has been skating at the team's practice and training facility during the lockout. Jokinen took part in some charity games, but he didn't head overseas to find work. He's projected to be the team's number one center this year, which should land him a spot next to young sniper Evander Kane on opening night.
