Highlights
1-time Liiga All-Star Team 1
1-time Liiga Best Defenseman (Pekka Rautakallio Award) 1
2-time Liiga Champion 2
1-time SHL Champion 1

Koivisto was skilled offensive defenseman. He excelled on the powerplay with his passing ability and fine shot. Would sometimes lose interest in playing defense, though. Also, he wasn't a speedy skater by any means.
