Otto Koivula
21-Year-Old CenterC
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Finnish forward wasn't much of a scorer for his Liiga team in 2016-17 or 2017-18, but last season at Bridgeport, he tallied 21 goals and 46 points in 69 games. Standing at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Koivula is a dominating figure on the ice, but one of his best strengths is his good hands. When everyone is healthy, the Islanders currently don't have a spot in the lineup for Koivula, but the 20-year-old should receive an NHL opportunity if an injury arises, especially if the big club is looking for additional scoring.

Moved to center
CNew York Islanders  Minors
September 11, 2019
Koivula has been moved to center this season, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Center is a position of weakness throughout the organization for the Islanders so they have moved Koivula for the time being. A rash of injuries could always change their plans, however. This is not bad news for Koivula because if he can excel at center, his path to the Islanders could be much quicker. Koivula impressed the Isles with 21 goals and 46 points for AHL Bridgeport last season. At 6-foot-4 and 230 lbs, Koivula is a big body, and not one necessarily built to play center, but there were no problems last year. Koivula will likely begin the year with Bridgeport once again, but he should debut with the Isles at some point this season.
