So tonight the Panthers are honoring the retirement of their iconic player Olli Jokinen, by giving him an honorary contract and a ceremony at tonights game against the Rangers.

ALL Panthers fans know who Jokinen is so there’s actually nothing more to say, just an awesome player and it’s great to see his love and passion for this team.
I could really see and wanting to see number 12 get retired in Florida, no one else can wear it better than Olli did.
He ranks 3rd overallĀ among Finnish born NHL players in points, and sixth overall in assist, not to mention that he has a franchise record for the Florida Panthers in scoring with 419 points in 567 games.

Well done man, you really deserve this and it’s great to see the Panthers doing something like this for such an important player to the franchise
It’s going to be great and I’ll wear my #12 Jokinen jersey tonight with pride!

Thanks for everything Olli!
