News: Jokinen is battling the flu and is unlikely to play Friday against the Senators, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Impact: Jokinen wasn't present at Friday's morning skate, so barring a dramatic recovery over the afternoon, it appears that he'll sit out for the first time this season. The veteran winger could probably benefit from the rest in any case, as he's cooled considerably since his hot start in November, going without a point and producing a minus-3 rating over his last four games. Jimmy Hayes figures to rejoin the lineup in Jokinen's place.(RotoWire, )

News: Jokinen has not recorded a single point in his last four games and has only recorded two shots on goal. Impact: Although he has gone dry in the last four games, Jokinen is currently tied for the team lead in points with 12 (two goals, 10 assists). Jokinen has found himself on the third line for most of the season, but his value comes on the power play, where he's averaging 2:45 minutes per game. He leads the team with four power-play points and is second on the team with 18 PIM. Jokinen's career shooting percentage is 13.1 percent, but it's just 6.5 percent so far this year, so his goal pace should increase as his luck balances out.(RotoWire, )

News: Jokinen scored a goal, had two penalty minutes, and put five shots on goal in a 5-2 loss to the Kings on Tuesday. Impact: Jokinen continued his strong play Tuesday, and with the goal, he stretched his point streak to four games. During that span he has one goal and five assists to go along with a plus-4 rating. Leaving Pittsburgh as a free agent, most analysts believed Jokinen would not be able to duplicate his 57 points in 81 games last season because he would not be slotted beside Evgeni Malkin. Jokinen is on pace for 62 points this season and has become a leader on the Panthers instead of playing in the shadows of others.(RotoWire, )

News: Jokinen dished out two assists for the second straight game in Sunday's win over Anaheim. Impact: Since when has being dropped to the third line been a good thing? Jokinen now has five points -- all assists -- in his last three games, skating with Vincent Trocheck and Jimmy Hayes on the third line. Jokinen still plays on the top power-play unit, and has recorded eleven points (one goal) in 15 games on the season. He's worth a look, as the Panthers are producing all kinds of offense and have gotten points in 10 of their last 12 games.(RotoWire, )

News: Jokinen registered two assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 with four shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders. Impact: Since Jokinen was moved off the top line and started playing on the third line with Jimmy Hayes and Vincent Trochek two games ago, he has produced three assists with five shots on goal and a plus-3 rating. The newly formed "third" line has been excellent so far and Jokinen is still playing with the top power play unit.(RotoWire, )
