He recorded one goal and 11 assists in 15 games for the AHL club. Many Hawks fans were rightfully disappointed with the front office’s choice to demote him, but the World Championships will provide another opportunity for him to compete against some of the top talent in the game.

Jokiharju will face off against a pair of fellow Blackhawks teammates in Alex DeBrincat and Patrick Kane, who are representing the United States in the IIHF World Championships, on Monday, May 13th.
