Olli Jokinen began his NHL career when he was selected by the Los Angeles Kings as the 3rd overall pick in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. However, it was with the Panthers that Jokinen truly came into his own, serving as the team’s captain and becoming their all-time leading scorer during his tenure.
After Florida, Jokinen played for several other NHL teams, including the Phoenix Coyotes, Calgary Flames, New York Rangers, Winnipeg Jets, Nashville Predators, Toronto Maple Leafs, and St. Louis Blues. Throughout his career, he was known for his consistency in scoring, with multiple seasons registering over 50 points.
In addition to his NHL contributions, Jokinen had a distinguished international career representing Finland. He participated in various World Championships, World Cup of Hockey tournaments, and Olympic Games, often playing crucial roles for the Finnish national team.

Luke Schenn, a Canadian defenseman, has had a solid NHL career. He began his journey with the Toronto Maple Leafs, who selected him fifth overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Schenn quickly made an impact, earning a spot on the NHL’s All-Rookie Team following his first season.
His time with the Maple Leafs lasted until 2012, when he was traded to the Flyers, giving him the unique opportunity to play alongside his younger brother, Brayden Schenn. Schenn’s career continued with several team changes including the Kings, Coyotes, Ducks, Canucks and Lightning (where he won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 2020 and 2021).
In the 2022-23 season, Schenn became the NHL’s all-time leader in hits by a defenseman. Despite his defensive prowess, he was traded back to the Toronto Maple Leafs before the trade deadline. Following this season, as a free agent, he signed a three-year contract with the Nashville Predators in July 2023, continuing his impactful NHL career.
