Wiki

Olli Jokinen (born December 5, 1978) is a Finnish professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was initially drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in 1997, third overall after Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau. He was the captain of the Florida Panthers from 2003 to 2008. He was later dealt to the Phoenix Coyotes, where he started the 2008–09 NHL season. With Phoenix failing to make the NHL playoffs, the Coyotes, on trade deadline day, traded Jokinen to the Calgary Flames. Jokinen has the dubious record of playing the most regular season games without making a playoff appearance. He played 799 games before finally reaching the post-season with the Flames.

Jokinen started his career in his hometown club KalPa, where he played his first season in SM-liiga. Jokinen played 15 games for the Kuopio team, scoring one goal, one assist with two minutes in penalties.

Jokinen had his true breakthrough during his second SM-liiga season, when he moved south and was contracted by HIFK, which was by that time a major contender in SM-liiga. HIFK was coached by American Head coach Mike Eaves during the 1996-97 season and Jokinen had a good season as he played in all 50 games, scoring 41 points (14+27).
