WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - The Winnipeg Jets have signed center Olli Jokinen to a two-year deal.

The 33-year-old $3 million last season in Calgary, where he had strong year with 23 goals and 61 points.

Jokinen has played with the L.A. Kings, New York Islanders, Florida, Phoenix, and the New York Rangers, where he was traded to by the Flames during the 2009-2010 season.

Calgary brought Jokinen back the next season and he finished with 17 goals and 54 points.

Winnipeg has also signed forward Alexei Ponikarovsky and defenseman Derek Meech as free agents.

Jokinen has scored 20 or more goals in seven of his 14 NHL seasons.

The Flames filled the hole left by Jokinen's departure by signing center Jiri Hudler to a $16-million, four-year deal.
