Jokinen potted his first goal with the Kings in Thursday's win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Jokinen showed off his slick hands with a nice breakaway tally against elite netminder Braden Holtby. The goal held up as the game winner for Jokinen, who has three points in eight games since joining the club. At this stage in his career, the 34-year-old doesn't offer too much in terms of fantasy value. Jokinen is still good for the occasional tally, though, and could aid you in a very deep league. The veteran is probably one of the better fourth-liners around.

Jokinen will make his debut with the Kings against the Bruins on Thursday, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Finnish veteran was part of a 1-for-1 swap that saw Michael Cammalleri bound for Edmonton. It looks like there's nowhere to go but up for Jokinen, as he only managed one point (an assist) and a minus-3 rating over 14 games with the Oilers, but we're still projecting him to start out in a fourth-line role with the Kings.

Jokinen was traded to the Kings in exchange for Michael Cammalleri, Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jokinen simply couldn't find his groove in Edmonton, notching just one assist and no goals on 24 shots through 14 games. Combine that with a minus-3 rating, and he was deemed an underwhelming veteran. The 34-year-old will likely never reach the 50-point seasons he used to post, so both the Oiler and Kings hope the change of scenery will benefit these journeymen through this exchange.

Jokinen put four shots on net in 15:01 of ice time during Saturday's drubbing at the hands of the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Through four games with the Oilers, Jokinen has yet to get on the scoresheet. He's put 10 pucks on net, but he's not seeing a whole lot of ice time. Saturday's 15:01 was a high-water mark for the young season. He's a long way from that 30-goal season in 2010. He's likely to be a role player this year. He can still score, but the ceiling isn't very high.

Jokinen agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Edmonton on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Jokinen joins Connor McDavid and company after three seasons with the Panthers. It was a difficult 2016-17 campaign for the winger as he saw action in just 69 games due to injury and failed to reach the 30-point mark for only the third time in his 12-year career. Even in a bottom-six role, the veteran's numbers should get a boost from joining the high-powered Oilers offense. Putting up 40 points is within the realm of possibility for Jokinen this upcoming season.

Jokinen will have his contract bought out by the Panthers, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Finn has one year remaining on his four-year contract, which is valued at $4 million annually. Given Jokinen's age -- he's 34 years old -- the Panthers will have to pay him two-thirds of his remaining salary with this buyout after the waiver process takes its course. He struggled with a knee injury this past season and ended up with just 28 points (11 goals, 17 assists) and a career-worst minus-15 rating in 69 games.

Jokinen has one year remaining on his contract with the Panthers, commanding $4 million. After that, he'd be an unrestricted free agent.

EDGE Analysis

Jokinen's deal includes a modified no-trade clause, but he still could be exposed to the Las Vegas expansion draft in June. The journeyman on the wing struggled with injuries this year, seeing his point total drop from 60 to 28 compared to the previous campaign. Of course, an abrupt in-season coaching change from Gerard Gallant to Tom Rowe, who won't be returning next season, seemed to disrupt the team chemistry in a negative way. Still, the Finn in question has played for five different NHL teams, so one would think he could laugh in the face of adversity by now. Health permitting, we'd bet on a rebound from Jokinen next year, but reevaluating the 34-year-old would be necessary if he finds himself in Sin City.

Jokinen contributed a power-play goal and an assist Tuesday against Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Jokinen's points came in a 3:11 span during the second period, as he assisted on Reilly Smith's 11th goal before reaching double digits himself with a power-play tally. He broke a 10-game goal drought here while also posting his sixth multi-point effort in the past 27 games after going without one in his first 31 appearances. Despite his recent resurgence, the 33-year-old forward still has just 25 points after registering 60 last season.

Jokinen collected two assists -- one with the man advantage -- during Wednesday's win over Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

With five goals and 10 points through his past 10 games, Jokinen has picked up his offensive production considerably. The hot stretch aligns with Florida dressing a healthy lineup, and considering the veteran's respectable numbers over the previous three seasons, a strong finish to 2016-17 is likely ahead. Keep expectations in check for his goal and shot totals, but he's a capable power-play producer who can pad the assists column. Jokinen is still a ripe value in daily contests and a worthwhile grab in the majority of seasonal settings.

Jokinen collected a goal, an assist and a minor penalty with a plus-2 rating during Thursday's loss to Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

Jokinen has only found the scoresheet in two of his past 10 games, but both outings have gone for multiple points. Additionally, he's beginning to show signs of turning his season around offensively with three goals, seven points, 15 shots and 13 PIM while averaging 17:52 of ice time (3:08 on the power play) through his past 12 games. Now that Florida is back to full health, a strong fantasy finish isn't out of the question, and Jokinen is a speculative add in seasonal leagues and a worthwhile value selection in daily contests when the Panthers have a soft matchup.
