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.

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.
