Hurricanes place Jokinen, Wallace on waivers

The Carolina Hurricanes placed forwards Jussi Jokinen and Tim Wallace on waivers Tuesday.

Jokinen's production has declined steadily since his first full season with the Hurricanes in 2008-09.

After registering 30 goals and 65 points in 2009-10, the Finn totaled 31 goals and 67 assists over the next two seasons.

This year he has compiled only five goals, 10 points and a minus-7 rating in 30 games.

Jokinen, 29, is in the second year of a three-year contract that pays him $3 million annually.

The 28-year-old Wallace has scored one goal in 21 games with the Hurricanes this season.
