RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jyrki Jokipakka.
Jokipakka made his debut in the AHL last season, scoring five goals and 16 assists through 68 games. Jokipakka is a part of a young defensive corps in Dallas that has a lot of potential. He'll be given a shot at making the Dallas lineup, but is likely to start the season with the AHL Stars. He's a big d-man with the ability to activate and makes good plays coming out of his own zone. It won't be long before he makes his NHL debut. Until then, he should be left off your fantasy roster.
