Olli Jokinen said a silver lining to the lockout was that he has had plenty of time to grow accustomed to the city of Winnipeg.

"The good thing this time was probably having the lockout so I had a good chance to get used to the surroundings and get to know the city and find some new friends outside hockey," said Jokinen. That's a very good attitude from the veteran center. The Jets will lean on Jokinen for leadership and offense this year. During the early part of training camp, he has been skating with Evander Kane and Kyle Wellwood.
