Jokinen announced his retirement Tuesday, signing an honorary contract with the Panthers, TSN reports.
It's natural to think of Jokinen as a journeyman since he played for 10 different organizations, but he officially hangs up his skates with a Florida club for which he served as team captain in four of seven seasons. Now 38, the Finn accumulated 750 points (321 goals, 429 assists) over 1,231 career contests. He also has extensive experience in international play, with 11 medals to his name between the Olympics, World Championships, World Cup, and World Junior Championships.

Jokinen (upper body) will remain out of the lineup until the weekend, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.He'll sit for a second straight game Thursday against the Flyers due to the injury, but coach Ken Hitchcock hopes to get the center back in the lineup for one of the Blues' two matches Saturday and Sunday.

Jokinen (upper body) took part in Wednesday's optional practice, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.The upper-body ailment kept Jokinen out of Tuesday's tilt with the Jets, but it's not believed to be a serious issue. If Jokinen can make it through Thursday's morning skate no worse for the wear, he'll likely be reinserted into the lineup for later that night against the Flyers.
Jokinen (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Jets, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.Coach Ken Hitchcock relayed that Jokinen could have played Tuesday, but the Blues instead elected to allow the veteran forward to get in added practice time in advance of Thursday's game against the Flyers.
Jokinen, who left Saturday's game in the third period with an undisclosed injury, didn't practice Monday but is expected to be available Tuesday, Tom Timmerman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.Jokinen made his debut with the Blues Saturday, but had it shortened by injury. The 35-year-old doesn't serve much fantasy value anyway, totaling just seven points this season, but he should be available Tuesday barring a setback.
Jokinen will make his debut with the Blues on Saturday. He will center the fourth line with Ryan Reaves and Steve Ott.Jokinen was acquired at the trade deadline by the Blues and will play a depth role in St. Louis. He has only seven points in 54 games on the season, so don't count on the 35-year-old to be rejuvenated with the change of scenery.
The Maple Leafs traded Jokinen to the Blues on Monday in exchange for a late-round draft pick, TSN.ca reports.Jokinen, who has notched just seven points in 54 combined games with the Maple Leafs and Predators this season, bolsters the Blues' depth up front, with something of an uptick in production plausible for the 36-year-old, though a wait-and-see approach from a fantasy perspective remains in order until his role in St. Louis is clarified.
Jokinen is in line to play Tuesday against the Panthers, Mark Masters of TSN reports.Per the report, Jokinen -- who recorded just six points in 48 games for Nashville before being traded to Toronto -- is slated to work on a line with Leo Komarov and David Clarkson on Tuesday.
Jokinen probably won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Mark Masters of TSN reports.Jokinen must wait until Mike Santorelli and Cody Franson are cleared to play for the Predators before he can suit up for the Leafs. Added to the lack of practice time with his new club, and it makes Jokinen a likely scratch Tuesday. With Trevor Smith considered questionable Tuesday and Joffrey Lupul already ruled out, the Leafs may need to recall another forward prior to the contest.
Jokinen was traded from the Predators to the Maple Leafs on Sunday.Jokinen was just a small piece in the trade that saw two players sent each way, with a 2015 first-round pick also heading to the Maple Leafs. The veteran forward will likely remain with the Maple Leafs through the end of the season, at which point he will become a free agent. Jokinen hasn't lived up to his $2.5 million price tag this season, posting just six points in 48 games.

Jokinen netted his third goal of the season in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Kings.
Jokinen collected his first two assists of the season Tuesday in a win over the Blues.Yep, he'd gone 35 games without an assist (and just two goals in that span) before getting the primary assists on goals by Shea Weber and Gabriel Bourque on Tuesday. There are precious few fantasy formats in which it's worth taking a shot on Jokinen at this point in his career.
Jokinen recorded his second goal of the season in Thursday's game against the Sharks.On a Predators squad chock-full of overachievers and reliable performers, Jokinen qualifies as one of the bigger disappointments. After submitting a 40-point season for the Jets a season earlier, Jokinen has just two points through 28 contests. Unsurprisingly, he's seen his average ice time drop over two and a half minutes from a season ago.
Jokinen finally picked up his first point of the year Thursday, scoring a third-period goal in a 3-2 loss to the Senators.Jokinen -- a 43-point man last year -- couldn't get the monkey off his back 'til his 19th game of the season, a brutal stretch that likely got him cut in most fantasy leagues where he was owned. Don't count on Jokinen's scoring to rebound suddenly, as he's been seeing sharply reduced ice time and seems unlikely to earn his way back into the top six right now.
Jokinen's season-long pointless drought continued Tuesday, as he was one of only three Nashville skaters to be held off the scoresheet during the Preds' 9-2 drubbing of the Maple Leafs.
Jokinen has zero points in five games for the Predators so far this season.
