Olli Jokinen spent the 2004-05 lockout playing for Kloten of the Swiss League, Sodertalje SK of the Swedish Elite League and finally IFK Helskinki.

He is now a part owner of IFK so that would be his choice if the NHL locks out their players after Sept. 15. "My Plan A is to settle in here and put the girls in school and train here," said Jokinen, who took to the ice Thursday again in Winnipeg alongside his young daughters. "There's no need to have a Plan B yet. For a lot of the players this is the only thing we want to do... we have to keep playing. I don't think it's going to be like last time when most of the guys went to play right away. Now we're going to sit tight and wait and then maybe later it's time to make those decisions."
