Jokinen (knee) will return to the lineup on Thursday.
Jokinen has been out since October 20th, but will be back in the Panthers’ lineup tonight vs. the Sharks. Jokinen will return to his spot on the Panthers’ second line with Vincent Trocheck and Reilly Smith. He has two assists in four games this season.
Jokinen is day-to-day with a lower-body injury that he suffered on Thursday. With Jokinen out, the Panthers have recalled Kyle Rau from Springfield (AHL) and he will replace Jokinen on the second line.
Jokinen (face/knee) is questionable for Saturday’s game.
Jokinen had to go to the dentist after being caught by a high stick on Thursday’s game and he is also dealing with a knee issue. He is listed as questionable for Saturday’s game, so monitor his status during the morning skate.
Jokinen was a late scratch from Tuesday’s game and is listed as day-to-day. With Jokinen out, Teddy Purcell will re-enter the lineup and Jiri Hudler moves into the top-6. Monitor Jokinen’s status prior to Thursday’s game in Toronto.
Jokinen (flu) is doubtful for Friday’s game vs. Ottawa.
Jokinen missed the Panthers morning skate and likely won’t play tonight because of flu-like symptoms. Jokinen has no points in his last four games and has 12 points (2G / 10A) in 20 games. Expect Jimmy Hayes to be back in the lineup.
Jussi Jokinen has signed a four-year deal worth $16 million with the Florida Panthers.
Jokinen, 31, had 57 points (21G / 37A) in 81 games playing on a line with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal (when healthy). He loses the chance to play with Malkin, but he goes to a Panthers team with some young but very skilled centres like Nick Bjugstad and Aleksander Barkov.

Jokinen was acquired by the Penguins on Wednesday and will suit up tonight vs. the Rangers. Jokinen has struggled this season, posting just six goals and five assists in 33 games with Carolina. Now he will be playing with two other veterans on a highly skilled team, you might be able to squeeze some fantasy value out of the 30-year-old.
