RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes will be without Jussi Jokinen because the forward has returned to Finland following the death of his father.

General manager Jim Rutherford made the announcement Monday in a statement. There was no timetable given for his return.

Jokinen has seven goals and 14 assists in 57 games this season with Tampa Bay and Carolina, which acquired him last month in a trade with the Lightning.
