Jokipakka will not receive a qualifying offer from Ottawa, Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports.

Jokipakka is expected to return to Europe to continue his professional career; he last played overseas during the 2012-13 campaign. The blueliner never seemed to gel with the Senators, as he appeared in a mere three contests after being acquired via trade at the deadline. Considering that he went unclaimed off waivers earlier this year, it seems unlikely there will be any NHL offers for the 25-year-old. If he can get his game back on track, there's a chance Jokipakka will make his way back to North America down the road, but it's not worth waiting for him even in deep dynasty formats.
