      Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen has totaled a goal and an assist through his first two games of the season. Jokinen has made the most of his chances as the Panther's third line left wing. His two points land him in Florida's top five scorers through the first two games. He will try to improve on his fine start Tuesday when the Panthers play the Hurricanes, the team Jokinen's only career hat trick came against.

    • Panthers' Jokinen Scores In Win Sunday

      News: Jussi Jokinen scored a power play goal in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Senators.
      Analysis: The team's second leading assister was aggressive all night, tying a season high with six shots on goal and was rewarded for his efforts with a tally on the power play. With the back injury to Nick Bjugstad, players such as Jussi Jokinen will have to step up to fill the void left by the team's leading goal scorer. Jokinen's fantasy value has ticked up over the past week and looks like a strong pickup to close out the season.

Jokinen's 40 points are third on the team and this is the seventh time in his career he's reached the 40-point threshold while racking up 30 or more assists. Jokinen still has some gas in the tank and will need to be an important piece for the Panthers' stretch run. He could be a nice late-season addition for fantasy owners.

He is an intriguing play in daily leagues and leagues of all sizes as a steady source of assists.

    • Trio Of Assists For Cats' Jokinen

      News: Jussi Jokinen dished out three helpers in Saturday's come-from-behind win over the Sabres.
      Analysis: The Juice was all over the place in this one, bringing his assist total to 28 on the year. His six goals are way off the 21 he put up last season with Pittsburgh -- which is somewhat expected considering he was surrounded by studs like Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and James Neal there -- but Jussi Jokinen is just 10 assists shy of his career-best 38 from his rookie season in Dallas, so there's value to be had here. The Panthers are going to need all hands on deck if they hope to catch -- and fend off -- the Boston Bruins for the final playoff spot in the East, so look for Jokinen to play set-up man for leading goal scorer Nick Bjugstad, 17-goal linemate Jimmy Hayes, and maybe even the newly-acquired Jaromir Jagr, who knows a thing or two about scoring with 716 career goals to his credit.

After a career year last season where he had 21 goals and 36 assists, Jokinen's point scoring has dropped off dramatically since joining the Panthers.
