Panthers' Jussi Jokinen: Our at least first two games of trip
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jokinen (knee) could miss the Panthers' entire road trip but will sit for at least the first two games, the Miami Herald reports. "It might be this trip, maybe," coach Gerard Gallant said. "It's the first two games of this for sure. But I thought Kyle was great and it doesn't surprise me."

Jokkinen has been replaced in the lineup by Kyle Rau, who coach Gallant left a glowing review about. The veteran winger can safely be ruled out through Thursday's contest against the Maple Leafs, making the earliest return date Saturday in Buffalo. If he can't return during the road trip, the Panthers return home on Nov. 1 to face the Bruins.

Panthers' Jussi Jokinen: Out for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jokinen's knee injury is not believed to be a serious issue, but he will not suit up Sunday evening against the visiting Wild, David Dwork of CBS Miami reports.

Jokinen, who's day-to-day, reportedly will be replaced in Saturday's lineup by Kyle Rau, who had a nine-game sampling of the NHL last season.

Panthers' Jussi Jokinen: Bothered by teeth and knee
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jokinen was recently treated by a dentist after taking a high stick to his face, and he's dealing with a knee issue, putting into question his availability for Saturday's game against the Avalanche, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Jokinen has recorded two assists through four games this season. He remains a key cog in all situations, including the power play, as he's averaged 2:46 of ice time in that spot. We wouldn't be overly concerned about the Finn's dental issues -- after all, he is a hockey player -- but the apparent knee injury has raised our collective brow. Expect the team to shed more light on Jokinen's status ahead of Saturday's game.

Panthers' Jussi Jokinen: Tallies first point of season Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokinen recorded an assist in the first period of a 4-1 win over Detroit on Saturday.

Jokinen wasted no time in hooking up with Vincent Trocheck for the first goal of the game just 1:10 into the contest. The 33-year-old Finn had his best season since 2009-10 last year, racking up 60 points and a staggering plus-25 rating as part of a surprisingly potent top six forward corps in Florida. Jokinen is currently skating on the second line with Trocheck and Reilly Smith -- as well as manning the point opposite Aaron Ekblad on the second power-play unit -- so he should continue to get ample scoring opportunities as the season progresses.

Panthers' Jussi Jokinen: Scoresheet filler not enough in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jussi Jokinen notched a power-play tally, two assists, a plus-2 rating and two PIM in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders in Game 1.

Jokinen filled the scoresheet in this one, but unfortunately it wasn't enough as the Islanders stole home ice. The veteran's last postseason appearance was with Pittsburgh in 2013-14 in which he went on a tear of 10 points in 13 games. The 33-year-old is clearly excited to be back in the playoffs, and the winger is carrying over his 60-point season nicely to start off the series despite the disappointing loss.
