Jokinen, Whitney to Play in World Championship

RALEIGH, NC—Carolina Hurricanes forwards Jussi Jokinen (Finland) and Ray Whitney (Canada) will represent their countries at the 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship, to be held May 7-23, in Mannheim and Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

Jokinen, 27, scored 30 goals and earned 65 points, while playing in 80 of the Hurricanes’ 82 games in 2009-10. His team-leading 30 goals ranked first among all Finnish-born National Hockey League players, and his 65 points ranked second among NHL-playing Finns to only Minnesota’s Mikko Koivu (71). Since making his NHL debut in 2005-06, the Kalajoki, Finland, native has scored 84 goals and earned 153 assists (237 points) in 386 NHL regular-season games with Dallas, Tampa Bay and Carolina. This marks Jokinen’s fourth IIHF World Championship, as he also represented Finland in 2005, 2006 and 2008, helping Finland to bronze medals in 2006 and 2008.

Whitney, 37, finished the 2009-10 season ranked third among Hurricanes skaters with 37 assists and 58 points, and ranked tied for third on the team with 21 goals. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alb., native played his 1,000th NHL regular season game on Oct. 21, and now has 324 goals and 545 assists (869 points) in 1,072 NHL regular-season games with San Jose, Edmonton, Florida, Columbus, Detroit and Carolina.
