PHILADELPHIA -- There's a chance the Winnipeg Jets could have a Jokinen in their lineup next season, but it might not be Olli.Follow @SlamSports
While there's an outside chance the Jets could re-sign Olli Jokinen on a one-year deal to be the third-line centre, a source said that another pending unrestricted free agent from Finland, Jussi Jokinen, is on the radar as well.
Although the Jets (and 28 other teams) passed on Jussi Jokinen when he was on waivers a couple years ago, he could be a perfect fit after elevating his game with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Jets head coach Paul Maurice had him under his watch with the Carolina Hurricanes and is a big fan of his game.
But can Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff make Jussi an offer he can't refuse?
We'll soon see.
