Top Joonas Donskoi News

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Dealing with concussion

    Donskoi suffered a concussion during preseason and has yet to return to the ice, Tiia Honkamaa of Jatkoaika reports.

    Donskoi suffered the injury on Sept. 29 when he collided with teammate Kole Lind in a game versus the Canucks. Donskoi has yet to skate since the incident as he is still suffering from headaches, vertigo and continues to have problems with his eyesight. His hockey career is in doubt as this was the seventh concussion he has sustained.

    Donskoi (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Donskoi (upper body) didn't take part in Monday's practice, Andy Eide of the Kraken's official site reports.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Suffers injury Thursday

    Donskoi (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Canucks, Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times reports.

    Donskoi was injured in a collision with teammate Kole Lind near the bench in the second period. The severity of Donskoi's injury is unknown, so it's possible the Kraken are being cautious with the 30-year-old winger in a preseason contest.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Records 20th helper

    Donskoi produced an assist and four shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.

    Donskoi helped out on Riley Sheahan's second-period tally to get to the 20-assist mark. The 30-year-old Donskoi snapped a four-game point drought in Sunday's season finale. The Finn had a brutal season with just two goals and a 2.2 shooting percentage in 75 contests, occasionally serving as a healthy scratch. The good news is that there's little chance he does worse, but it's probably wise to take a wait-and-see approach with him next season.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Approaching 20 assists

    Donskoi collected an assist in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.

    Donskoi has strung together three assists over the last five games, serving as a decent bottom-six winger for the expansion club. Still, it hasn't been an easy adjustment for the Finn, as his shooting percentage has shrunk from a career-high mark with Colorado last season at 19.8 percent all the way down to 2.4 percent with the Kraken. He's only scored twice but has managed 19 assists to keep him from falling off the map completely in fantasy games.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Garners helper Monday

    Donskoi notched an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Senators.

    Donskoi was a healthy scratch Saturday versus the Devils, but he was able to get an assist in his return to the lineup. He's picked up three helpers in his last nine contests while playing in a bottom-six role. The Finn has scraped his way to the 20-point mark with 80 shots on net and a minus-9 rating through 68 appearances in a disappointing season. He's under contract for one more year, so he'll be looking to bounce back in 2022-23.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Contributes assist in loss

    Donskoi managed an assist and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Flames.

    Donskoi helped out on an Adam Larsson tally in the second period. With a seemingly permanent spot on the fourth line, Donskoi has done little to improve his poor scoring numbers this season. His assist Tuesday ended a six-game point drought, but he's at only 19 points with 80 shots on net and a minus-10 rating through 67 appearances.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Chips in with helper

    Donskoi logged an assist in Monday's 6-1 win over the Kings.

    Donskoi ended a four-game skid that also included four absences due to an undisclosed injury. The 29-year-old winger got back on the scoresheet as he helped out on Daniel Sprong's third-period tally. With just 18 points through 60 contests, Donskoi's first year with the Kraken has been a significant disappointment that's seen him slip into a fourth-line role lately.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Removed from injured reserve

    Donskoi (undisclosed) was taken off injured reserve Monday, clearing the way for him to play against Arizona on Tuesday.

    Donskoi missed the team's last four games due to his undisclosed injury but appears set to rejoin the lineup. With several players having departed via trade, including Colin Blackwell and Mason Appleton, Donskoi could push for a top-six role now that he is healthy.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Lands on IR

    Donskoi (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    Donskoi wasn't in Thursday's lineup against the Senators and he'll miss Saturday's tilt with Montreal as well. The 29-year-old winger has 17 points through 57 games this season. He could return as early Wednesday against the Lightning.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Nets second goal of season

    Donskoi scored a goal in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

    Donskoi got the Kraken on the board with 3:04 left in the first period. The tally snapped his four-game point drought since his most recent healthy scratch Feb. 22. The 29-year-old winger has had an unlucky first season with the Kraken, posting two goals, 15 assists, 65 shots on net and a minus-9 rating in 55 appearances. Given his subpar production, he could occasionally find himself in the press box.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Earns shorthanded helper

    Donskoi produced a shorthanded assist in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.

    Donskoi set up Mark Giordano's shorthanded tally in the first period. The assist snapped Donskoi's six-game point drought, but he's still been a passenger more often than not when it comes to offense. The Finnish winger has just one goal, 15 helpers, 62 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 51 outings -- he had 31 points in the same number of games last season.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Snaps season-long goal drought

    Donskoi scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.

    One of the league's most puzzling statistical oddities came to an end Tuesday, as Donskoi finally lit the lamp in the third period. The 29-year-old had come up empty on his first 52 shots of the year -- a prolonged struggle for a winger who had scored at least 14 times in each of the last four campaigns. He's up to 15 points, 55 shots on net and a minus-4 rating through 44 contests in 2021-22, but he's likely to remain in a bottom-six role unless he gets hot on offense.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Returning Tuesday

    Donskoi (undisclosed) will be in Tuesday's lineup against Nashville, Marisa Ingemi of The Seattle Times reports.

    Donskoi has 14 assists through 40 games this season, but he's still searching for his first goal as a member of the Kraken. He'll be back in the lineup after missing Sunday's tilt with Florida due to an undisclosed issue. Expect the 29-year-old to skate in a middle-six role.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Out Sunday

    Donskoi (undisclosed) will not play Sunday against Florida, Marisa Ingemi of The Seattle Times reports.

    It's unclear why Donskoi isn't available but he'll miss his first game of the season. The veteran winger has 14 assists and a minus-4 rating through 40 games. An update on his status should be available before Tuesday's clash with Nashville.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Quiet in loss

    Donskoi had two shots and a hit in a 2-1 loss to the Blues on Thursday.

    Donskoi has been held without a point since logging his 200th career point back on Dec. 15 against the Ducks. The 29-year-old has no goals and 14 assists through 36 contests.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Earns 200th career point

    Donskoi recorded an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.

    Donskoi set up Ryan Donato for the opening tally at 6:23 of the third period. The assist was Donskoi's 200th career point (78 goals, 122 helpers in 427 contests). The Finnish winger is up to 14 assists this season in 28 games, matching his count from last year, but he's yet to score his first goal with the Kraken.

  • Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Logs power-play helper

    Donskoi notched a power-play assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Donskoi nearly had his first goal of the season, but his shot was tipped in by Jaden Schwartz. The 29-year-old Donskoi remains snakebit for goals, but he's up to a reasonable 13 assists, 33 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 27 contests. He plays in a fourth-line role most of the time, though the Kraken's balanced offense means that's not a totally unproductive place for him.
