Earlier today, I sent a congratulatory email to Jussi Jokinen and asked him what he had been doing so far this offseason. I also asked if he had any comments to pass on to fans. He responded shortly afterwards and this is what he had to say:
I am VERY excited to be returning to Carolina for the next two years.. It's been very nice seeing and hanging out with family and friends here in Finland. I started my summer training program last week. I noticed that the Canes drafted two defensemen from Finland this past weekend. They are pretty young and I do not know much about them, though.
I hope all Canes fans are having a great summer!
Thank you, Jussi, for your response and enjoy your time!
Now that the versatile forward is under contract, who will be next for the Canes?
