Tommi Jokinen comes to Fife.

The UNISON Fife Health Branch Fife Flyers are delighted to welcome 33-year-old Tommi Jokinen to Kirkcaldy for the 2021/22 Elite Ice Hockey League season.

The 6"0' Finnish forward joins the Flyers after being released from EIHL side Nottingham Panthers where he was brought in as injury cover.

Prior to playing in the UK, Jokinen played in the Finnish Liiga for fifteen years before joining Slovakian side HC Presov.

During his time in Finland he played 745 times and scored 254 points.

He also made 22 appearances in the European Champions Hockey League (CHL), scoring nine points.


Commenting, Fife Flyers head coach Todd Dutiaume said:

"Tommi Jokinen joins us from Nottingham Panthers. Tommi's resume speaks for itself and from our numerous conversations, he's a great person and really excited to be joining us. It's up to me to put him into situations where he will excel and show the kind of player he is. He will be joining us immediately following Christmas."

"With the addition of Brandon Magee and now Tommi Jokinen, it's given this line-up a tremendous shot in the arm, something that has been much needed and something we have been working hard on since the beginning of the season."

"For the first time all year, we'll have a full line-up. That's with our Captain Matt Carter on injury reserve. It gives him time to heal and get himself back up to full fitness and not have to try and push something. We all know that he is a key part of our line-up."

"We have a lot of options and competition within our lineup which keeps everybody sharp. I'm sure Tommy is going to come in here and really enjoy the fans, the building and certainly the way we do things up here in Fife."
