Report: Maple Leafs likely to flip newly-acquired Jokinen

Bruce Fedyck / USA TODAY Sports

Olli Jokinen's tenure in Toronto may not be a long one.

The veteran center, acquired Sunday in a four-player deal involving Cody Franson, is likely to be moved by the Maple Leafs prior to the March 2 trade deadline, according to Darren Dreger of TSN.

Jokinen was clearly unimpressed about moving from a Stanley Cup contender to a team near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings.

Jokinen, who's set to become a free agent at season's end, recorded three goals and three assists in 48 games for the Predators.
