Koivu is Shipping up to Boston

The old saying says “you don’t win by sitting on the sidelines”, or perhaps I just made that up?

Anyway, the Colonials bring back centre Mikko Koivu for a second go round. Koivu adds a solid 1-2 punch at centre with Ryan Kesler, which was markedly absent after dealing Vincent Trocheck.

The deal: Mikko Koivu and BRN 2nd 2019 for Christian Dvorak and HAV 3rd 2019

While this is most likely a rental situation, GM Graves will not shy away from dealing young talented players to make his team better.

“It’s really about winning a cup. I am not getting any younger and the fans deserve the best product on the ice” said Graves. He went on to add “We will just cycle in fresh blood via the draft or by Free Agency. Easy Peasy!”

Koivu led the Huskies this season with 12G and 17A for 29 points.

Koivu is enroute to Boston and should be in the lineup vs the Banff Rockies tonight.
