Olli Jokinen, perhaps the best free-agent center that remained on the unrestricted market, has signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Winnipeg Jets, TSN's Darren Dreger reported on Twitter Monday night.

Jokinen's new contract is a bit of a raise. His last deal with the Calgary Flames was a two-year, $6 million deal he signed in 2010.
