Home Hockey Star Jussi Jokinen Wants to Pass Florida Home to a Buyer for $1.85M
November 30, 2019
Professional ice hockey player Jussi Jokinen is skating away from his Parkland, FL, home. As we reported back in 2015, the Finnish star purchased the property for $1.75 million, soon after he joined the Florida Panthers.
He’s now back in Finland, so his South Florida home is back on the market for $1.85 million.
Built in 2008, the waterfront estate offers six bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and 6,757 square feet.
Along with water and golf views, the property comes with two garages—one of which holds a mini hockey rink that was there when Jokinen bought the place. If the next buyers don’t need to practice their slap shot, the space can be converted back into a regular garage, says listing agent Sami Luukkonen.
“This waterfront estate has it all,” added the agent.
Inside, the spacious spread offers a formal living room and dining room, as well as a designer kitchen with high-end appliances, a butler’s pantry, and a center island.

In addition, the layout includes a master suite, with two walk-in closets and a marble bath. Other perks include an office, media room, and man cave with multiple TV screens so you can keep an eye on a variety of sporting events.
Outside, the large backyard sports a pool and an outside kitchen and dining area.
Located in the Heron Bay community, the neighborhood comes with tennis courts, an athletic center, pool, and clubhouse.
After making his NHL debut with the Dallas Stars in 2005, Jokinen, 36, went on to lace up his skates for eight other squads. He finished out his time in the NHL by playing for four different teams in the 2017-18 season.
After that head-spinning turn of events, Jokinen returned to his native Finland, where he now plays for Oulun Kärpät of the Finnish Liiga.
