Grasshopper

Jokinen's experience and locker-room presence make him a leader to the younger guys on the team. Young defenceman Victor Bartley can be seen here emulating journeyman tongue-wagger Olli Jokinen.

Halloween Special

 Joki had a bit of an off game recently... 

His movement was stiff and sluggish, and he had difficulty communicating with his teammates due to his inability to say anything other than the word "brains" repeatedly in Finnish. 

His problems were exacerbated in the third period when he tackled one of the linesmen after a whistle, and proceeded to consume most of his flesh, including his brain. 

Aiiiivooooot... Aivot...

Auughh!!!!!! Aivot herkullinen!

Disease experts have confirmed that teammate and failed Umbrella Corporation experiment Mike Ribeiro was the obvious source of Jokinen's infection.

Rocket

Jokinen prepares his nares for launch.

3...2...1...

The Predators are set to crush the Coyotes tonight, provided they keep their sticks on the ice and their noses clean.

The Prodigal Son

Happy 2014/2015 NHL season everyone! 



It's Joki's first time back in Winnipeg since he was dropped off on the Predators' front step in the middle of the night, wrapped up in a baby blue blankey. 

He was in fine form Friday evening as he effortlessly jammed his stick in Brian Little's feet and then relaxed in the penalty box with his tongue out. 


It was all for nought though, since the Nashville Sabre Toothed Cats only needed their goaltender to show up. 

 ...And now the rivalry between Pekka Rinne and Ondrej Pavlec just got personal.

Conspiracy theories

Jokinen secretly wished the Jets wouldn't make the playoffs so that he could get a free flight from the IIHF to go back to Europe. 



Your innocent whistling only implicates you further, bud.

Thank you

Since the Jets didn't make the playoffs, and I can't quit my job following hockey players around all day, it's time to take a little break for the summer.

Thank you for checking out and sharing this blog, I hope you enjoyed it.

And now, the classic "Jokinen loves waffles" .GIF, to satisfy you over the next few months.

Triple Parentheses

Jokinen puts a tongue-hex on the Boston Bruins (causing them to fall to the Jets (who (despite having the 11 year old son of one of the coaching staff playing in net, and over 26 injured players) managed to best the league-leading Bruins)).

Bracket, bracket, bracket - my tongue causes racket.
