Wiki

Jussi Jokinen (born April 1, 1983) is a Finnish professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL). Jokinen is of no relation to Olli Jokinen of the Calgary Flames, but has a younger brother, Juho, who currently plays for Kärpät in the Finnish SM-liiga.

Jokinen was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the 6th round, 192nd overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. Jokinen spent his four seasons before his NHL debut playing for Kärpät of the SM-liiga, the top Finnish league.

In his rookie year in the 2005–06 NHL season, Jokinen gained a great reputation in the NHL as one of the best shootout specialists in the league. Until being stopped by Evgeni Nabokov he was a remarkable nine-for-nine in shootouts before his first unsuccessful attempt. He can be seen pulling some unique dekes, such as the one handed slide in goal (as made famous by Peter Forsberg) - also known as "The Paralyzer" - in shootouts.
