Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
Dating back into last season, Jokinen has scored just once in his last 23 regular-season games – not enough for a player that averaged 37 goals in each of his final three years with the Florida Panthers and was acquired by Calgary at last year’s trade deadline to provide goals.
Of course, the difference between Jokinen then and Jokinen now is evident in his shots-on-goal total. In those three years in Florida, Jokinen took 351, 351 and 341 shots respectively. Last year, split between Phoenix and Calgary, his shots plunged by more than 100 (to 236) and this year, it’s even worse. Through 10 games, he had only 17 shots in total, or about what Alex Ovechkin manages every two games.
