For his career in the National Hockey League Jokinen has played in 539 contests for three different teams (Florida, New York Islanders & Los Angeles) recording 126 goals, 150 assists and 276 points. Jokinen has posted more than 50 points three times in his eight-year playing career, including two seasons of 60-plus points (2002-03 & 2005-06). He was originally acquired from the NY Islanders along with Roberto Luongo on June 24, 2000 in exchange for Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha.

Named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team in the 2002-03 season, Jokinen scored a goal and added three assists. Most recently, he starred on the Finnish Olympic squad earning a silver medal at the 2006 Torino Winter Games, posting eight points (6-2) and a +/- rating of plus-5.
