Koivula is a healthy scratch Sunday in New Jersey.

Unfortunately for Koivula, he is a center, a position that might be the deepest on the team with Mathew Barzal, Brock Nelson, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, and Casey Cizikas. Coach Barry Trotz has rotated wings on the third line but hasn't felt the need to do so at center. Koivula will likely need an injury to another center before he sees any game action.
