Observations

January 2018 – Otto Koivula spent time on Finland’s third line through most of the World Junior Championships. He had a quiet tournament – netting just two assists and a minus-3 rating. The overall pace of the tournament and Finland’s weaker-than-usual forward skill made for tough sledding for the big Finn. The Isles fourth round pick in 2016 is having a fine year in Finland’s top league. He has 19 points in 33 games as Ilves struggles to get into playoff contention. The 6-4 winger has an unusually low amount of goals for his career and play style – just four on 85 shots. Michael Farkas
