The Calgary Flames have lost their leader in assists from last season.
On Monday it was confirmed that the Winnipeg Jets had signed Olli Jokinen to a two year deal worth nine million.
Jokinen had 38 assists for the Flames last season to lead the team and was also second in points (61) and third in goals (23).
The Flames on Monday simply decided to spend their money on Jiri Hudler rather than Olli Jokinen.
Jokinen maybe six years older than Hudler, but Jokinen has proven he is a more complete player. I know Jokinen had only 11 more points, but he also had a whopping 96 more shots on goal.
The Jets love Finnish talent and Jokinen will give Winnipeg hockey fans a glimpse of the past when they had the great Teemu Selanne.
