Jokinen mistake could be corrected with Finnish injuries


Jussi Jokinen's chances of skating for Team Finland just got better. According to CTV, Teemu Salanne and now Saku Koivu have been hit by injuries lately. Jokinen has been one the standout Hurricanes this season, and could be considered one of the better Finns in the league (11g-17a -1 in 45 games).

If an Olympic medal came down to a shootout, who would you roll out if you could choose anyone? You can bet Jussi Jokinen is on that short list. Here is hoping the Team Finland brass corrects their glaring mistake of leaving Jokinen off their initial Olympic roster.

UPDATE: Saku Koivu out one to two weeks with a sprained knee. Chances are slim for Jokinen, but then again, he should already have a ticket punched for Vancouver.
