Fantasy Summary

A shifty, intelligent forward that can punish unsuspecting defensemen with his shot


Click to Expand

April 2024 – Aatos Koivu is a well-skating center that has had a steep development curve during the season. He is physically quite raw which partly explains why he flew under the radar for so long. Koivu possesses a plus tool in his shot that he likes to fire frequently, especially from the half-wall. He also has a quite good hockey sense especially in the offensive zone where he is good at making himself available as an option to pass the puck to. He can play responsible two-way hockey and he’s already developed some mature habits like good scanning. Anni Karvinen

April Ranking: 81st

February 2024 – Aatos Koivu, the son of the former NHLer Saku Koivu, has taken huge steps during the season. The intelligent center started the season with the U18 team but was moved to play in the U20 and has also gotten a couple of Liiga call-ups already. While his physical play needs improving, he possesses a couple of nice tools in his toolkit with his shot and skating.  Anni Karvinen
