Jussi Jokinen returned to Finland last night to be with his family after the death of his father. It's expected that he will be gone for a week.
Sincere condolences to Jussi and his family.
According to Chip at Canes Now, Dwight Helminen has been recalled from Albany to take his place. Apparently, Jim Rutherford wants to keep Brandon Sutter in Albany for another week.
That seems to contradict reports from last week indicating that they were trying to get Sutter back here before the Thrashers game, but he had a flight canceled at the last minute. Confusing times at Edwards Mill Road.
