Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Silver Medal 1

His game is one of pure, unrelenting skill, and an attacking mindset to match. Koivunen wants the puck on his stick, wants to be a game-breaker, wants to make something happen every shift. Koivunen keeps his top hand pushed out, handles the puck at his hip, and doesn’t mind engaging numbers. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide

Koivunen’s smarts are high-end and he’s got a large box of other very projectable tools at his disposal, EPRinkside.com 2021
