2019 Fantasy Outlook
Jokiharju had a promising start to his rookie campaign in 2018-19, notching 12 assists while averaging 18:59 of ice time in 38 appearances with the Blackhawks, but the organization ultimately felt that it would be in his best interest to continue to develop in the AHL for the remainder of the season. He proceeded to show why Chicago was willing to spend a first-round pick on him in 2017 during his time in the minors, posting a respectable two goals and 17 points while registering a plus-7 rating in 30 contests. However, the Finnish blueliner was drafted when coach Joel Quenneville was still at the helm, and simply didn't fit new head coach Jeremy Colliton's system, so the Blackhawks decided to cut ties with the 20-year-old in July, trading him to the Sabres in exchange for Alexander Nylander. Jokiharju has top-pairing potential, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him start the 2019-20 campaign with Buffalo's AHL affiliate. He's definitely worth a stash in dynasty formats, but the 6-foot defender is probably still at least a year away from fantasy relevancy, so there's no reason for owners in re-draft leagues to spend a pick on him this season.

Jokiharju provided a pair of assists in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Sharks.
ANALYSIS
The Finnish defenseman also had a pair of shots and a plus-2 rating in the contest. Jokiharju is up to three assists, nine hits and nine blocked shots in nine games this year, which isn't too bad for a 20-year-old adjusting to his second team in as many NHL seasons.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jokiharju is a Finnish blue-line prospect binded by a three-year, entry-level contract with the Blackhawks. The mobile skater crafted 21 goals and 98 helpers for the WHL's Portland Winterhawks between 2016-18, but his sublime offensive skils could help him secure a spot on Chicago's Opening Night roster to start the 2018-19 campaign. With the Blackhawks sending 2018 eigth overall pick Adam Boqvist back to junior, that's even more evidence that Jokiharju could skip the AHL entirely and contribute to the parent club right away. It's clear that Jokiharju is worth more than a dynasty stash.
