Date Key Old Value New Value
2020-10-09 analysis Koivula made his NHL debut this season, logging 12 games for the Isles in which he recorded four shots, 12 hits and four blocks while averaging 7:55 of ice time. The 21-year-old center will likely have to impress during training camp to earn a spot on the 23-man roster next season but could sit atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the year.
2020-10-09 update Koivula will start the 2020-21 season on loan with HIFK (Finland).
2020-02-25 analysis Koivula was demoted earlier Monday as a paper move but has already returned to the NHL roster. He'll likely suit up for Tuesday's contest against the Rangers.
2020-02-25 update Koivula was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Monday.
2020-02-25 analysis
2020-02-25 update
2020-02-21 analysis Koivula hasn't produced in limited action with the big club this campaign, going scoreless while averaging just 8:15 of ice time per contest in seven appearances. If he cracks the lineup, the 21-year-old rookie will be looking to pick up his first NHL point Friday against Detroit.
2020-02-21 update The Islanders recalled Koivula from AHL Bridgeport on Friday.
2020-02-21 analysis
2020-02-21 update
2020-01-17 analysis Koivula will return to the minors following Casey Cizikas' (groin) return to action following a one-game absence. The pivot drew into just one game in his brief stint with the club, posting a hit and a plus-1 rating over 13:39 of ice time against the Red Wings on Tuesday.
2020-01-17 update The Islanders reassigned Koivula to AHL Bridgeport on Friday.
2020-01-13 analysis With Casey Cizikas (groin) not expected to play in Monday's tilt, Koivula was recalled as some extra insurance. He was on the ice for warmups and could crack the lineup in a bottom-six role. Koivula was held scoreless in his first six NHL games this season.
2020-01-13 update Koivula was promoted from AHL Bridgeport on Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
2019-12-06 analysis Koivula has been a healthy scratch for four of the Isles' last 10 games and only averaged 7:20 of ice time in the six contests he appeared in, so this move makes sense. The 21-year-old rookie will return to a prominent role with Bridgeport, where he's posted five points in 10 games this campaign.
2019-12-06 update The Islanders loaned Koivula to AHL Bridgeport on Friday.
2019-12-03 analysis Koivula has yet to register a point for the Isles in six games played this season and had a team-low 4:26 of ice time Monday. With Tom Kuhnhackl (lower body) possibly returning from IR before the Islanders depart on their next road trip Saturday, Koivula may be ticketed back to Bridgeport of the AHL.
2019-12-03 update Koivula was a healthy scratch for the third time in the last five games for the Islanders on Tuesday versus Montreal.
2019-12-02 Position LW C
2019-11-13 analysis
2019-11-13 update
2019-11-12 analysis Casey Cizikas and Andrew Ladd are both dealing with knee injuries ahead of Wednesday's matchup with Toronto, so Koivula will be on hand in case either of them are unable to go against the Maple Leafs. The 21-year-old Finn has picked up two goals and five points in 10 AHL appearances this season.
2019-11-12 update The Islanders recalled Koivula from the minors Tuesday.
2019-11-09 analysis The 21-year-old did not dress during his brief stint with the Islanders and will now return to the minors, where Koivula has a pair of goals, to go along with two assists, in eight appearances.
2019-11-09 update Koivula was sent down to AHL Bridgeport following Saturday's win over Florida.
2019-11-08 analysis
2019-11-08 update
2019-11-07 analysis Koivula didn't play in his previous call-up and is unlikely to do so versus Pittsburgh on Thursday. If the center does slot into the lineup, it would likely be in favor of Cole Bardreau or Oliver Wahlstrom. As soon as the Islanders can get healthy, Koivula will be back in the minors, where he has recorded two goals, two assists and four PIM in eight games.
2019-11-07 update Koivula was recalled from the minors Thursday.
2019-11-06 analysis Koivula's latest minor-league assignment lasted just two days, with the Isles' decision to bring him back perhaps indicating that none of their five forwards on injured reserve are on track to return Tuesday against the Senators. Even if that's the case, Koivula will still more than likely find himself in the press box Tuesday. With exactly 12 healthy forwards and six healthy defensemen, the Islanders recalled Koivula and blueliner Seth Helgeson to take warmups in case of a last-second injury. Nothing surfaced, so the two were sent back to the minors. Koivula has four points in seven AHL games this year.
