Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Sneaks in assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju earned an assist Tuesday, but the Sabres lost to the Bruins in the shootout, 3-2.

This was the third point in the last four games for Jokiharju, who is averaging 17:26 of ice time as a second-pairing defenseman for a struggling Buffalo team. The Finn has produced three goals and four assists through 32 games while showing flashes of the offensive potential that resulted in the Blackhawks nabbing him 29th overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.

Jokiharju has played in just one of the last six games. The 21-year-old could draw back into the lineup for Tuesday's road clash against the Devils as he looks to add to the two points and 17 blocked shots he's recorded through 18 games.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Returned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju was returned to Buffalo's taxi squad Saturday.

Jokiharju has evidently fallen out of favor with coach Ralph Krueger recently, as he'll be a healthy scratch for the fourth time in the Sabres' last five games Saturday. He's picked up two points while posting a minus-7 rating in 18 contests this season.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Jumps to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.

Brandon Davidson was sent to the taxi squad in a corresponding move, so it appears that Jokiharju -- who was a healthy scratch for the last two games -- will play in Tuesday's game versus the Flyers. Jokiharju has posted two points, 19 shots on net and 15 blocked shots through the first 17 games this year.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Heads to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju was assigned to the taxi squad Sunday.

The 21-year-old has posted two points, 14 hits and 15 blocked shots through 17 games this season. Jokiharju won't play in Sunday's game versus the Islanders.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Nabs first assist of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju collected an assist in Monday's loss to the Islanders.

It's Jokiharju's first helper of the year, and his first point in seven outings. Through 11 games, he has two points, a minus-4 rating, six hits and 11 blocks. The 21-year-old's career high is 15 points, so his fantasy value is limited unless he develops a more offensive game.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju (undisclosed) is set to rejoin the lineup Saturday against the Devils, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

The 21-year-old blueliner practiced Friday and will rejoin the lineup on the second pair with Brandon Montour after missing the past two games. Jokiharju has just one point in six appearances this season and has only received seconds of power-play time, so he can be ignored in most formats, though he does bolster the Buffalo defense.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju (undisclosed) will miss Thursday's matchup with the Rangers, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Jokiharju will be sidelined for his second game due to his lingering undisclosed injury. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner garnered one goal on seven shots, seven blocks and four hits while averaging 17:17 of ice time. Until the Finn is cleared to return, Matt Irwin figures to continue featuring in the lineup, which included Tuesday's clash with New York.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Sitting out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju (undisclosed) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Rangers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Jokiharju will miss his first game since being traded to the Sabres in July of 2019. It appears that Matt Irwin will draw into the lineup in Jokiharju's place.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Dealing with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with the Rangers, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Jokiharju didn't skate Tuesday morning due to a "very minor" injury, but he might still be available for the evening's matchup with New York. If Jokiharju's unable to go, Matt Irwin will likely draw into the lineup and make his season debut against the Rangers.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Nabs first of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju scored a goal on two shots and supplied three blocks in Monday's 6-1 win at Philadelphia.

Jokiharju's third-period goal wasn't exactly one for the highlight reel. The 21-year-old slid a harmless looking backhander along the ice all the way from the half wall, and it somehow found its way through traffic and eluded Philadelphia netminder Brian Elliott. Jokiharju had four goals and 15 points in 69 games last season with the Sabres.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Lacking offense lately
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju has just one point in the last 10 games.

Jokiharju played a season-high 22:26 during Thursday's win over Columbus, but he finished the contest with no points and a minus-3 rating. With 14 points through 58 games, he has set a new career high, but the recent slump has him on pace to finish the campaign under the 20-point plateau, limiting his fantasy value.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Sets up eventual game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju registered an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

Jokiharju surpassed last season's point output with the helper. He's now at 13 points, 58 shots on goal, 46 hits, 43 blocks and 28 PIM through 48 games. The 20-year-old Finn hasn't done enough on offense to warrant much fantasy consideration yet.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Snaps point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju found the back of the net during Saturday's meeting with the Panthers.

The goal ended a nine-game point drought for the 20-year-old. He's up to four goals on the campaign, which ties him for first among Sabres defensemen. Jokiharju also has seven assists to his name, bringing him up to 11 points in 43 games. He posted similar numbers last year with 12 points in 38 contests for the Blackhawks.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Scores with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju scored a goal on two shots and was plus-2 with two PIM in Monday's 7-1 win over the Devils.

Jokiharju put the finishing touches on Buffalo's blowout win, scoring his third goal of the year in the second period. It was Jokiharju's first career power-play goal, and the 20-year-old sophomore now has eight points through 28 games. The 2:07 worth of power-play time is also noteworthy, as the Sabres gave him a shot on the top unit in an attempt to spark a lifeless power play, and one that just lost Rasmus Dahlin to a concussion. The move worked, so expect to see Jokiharju on the PP for the next few games.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Registers goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju netted his second career goal in Thursday's loss to the Hurricanes.

The 20-year-old is starting to provide some offense, having scored two goals and an assist in his last five contests. Jokiharju is playing on Buffalo's third pairing, but he still has the potential to provide some value in deeper leagues. His seven points through 18 games puts him on pace for a 31-point campaign.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Scores first NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju scored a goal on five shots in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Capitals.

Jokiharju sent a point shot on goal that bounced in off a Washington defender midway through the second period, giving the 20-year-old his first National Hockey League goal. The Finnish defenseman, acquired from Chicago in the offseason, has a goal and four assists in 14 games.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Slings two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokiharju provided a pair of assists in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Sharks.

The Finnish defenseman also had a pair of shots and a plus-2 rating in the contest. Jokiharju is up to three assists, nine hits and nine blocked shots in nine games this year, which isn't too bad for a 20-year-old adjusting to his second team in as many NHL seasons.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Jokiharju from AHL Rochester on Thursday.

Jokiharju was only temporarily sent to the minors as a cap-manipulation move, so in reality, the 20-year-old blueliner made Buffalo's Opening Night roster out of camp. If the former Blackhawk makes his Sabres debut Thursday against Pittsburgh, he'll likely skate with Marco Scandella on Buffalo's bottom pairing.

Sabres' Henri Jokiharju: Dealt to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres acquired Jokiharju from the Blackhawks on Tuesday in exchange for forward Alexander Nylander.

The two clubs will exchange recent first-round picks, as Jokiharju (No. 29 overall in 2017) and Nylander (No. 8 overall in 2016) swap sides. The 20-year-old blueliner made his NHL debut with Chicago in 2018-19, logging 38 games and supplying zero goals, 12 assists and 16 PIM. He'll presumably contend for a spot on Buffalo's second or third defensive pairing.
