Koivula will start the 2020-21 season on loan with HIFK (Finland).

Koivula made his NHL debut this season, logging 12 games for the Isles and recording four shots, 12 hits and four blocks while averaging 7:55 of ice time. The 21-year-old center will likely have to impress during training camp to earn a spot on the 23-man roster next season but could sit atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the year.
