  • Koivu would consider playing in his native Finland if he doesn't have any NHL options this summer, per Michael Russo of The Athletic. Koivu is set to hit the free-agent market this summer and is 37 years of age, so the idea of him hanging it up in the NHL certainly isn't out of left field. The veteran was limited to just 55 games this year, in part due to injury, and recorded his lowest point total (21) since his rookie season back in 2005-06. If the center is willing to accept a significantly reduced cap hit compared to the $5.5 million he cost Minnesota this season, there could be a handful of teams interested in signing him.

  • Koivu managed an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Sharks. The Finnish center picked up a helper on Ryan Suter's opening tally in the first period. Koivu now has 21 points, 71 shots and a plus-5 rating in 53 games. He's played in a mostly bottom-six role this year -- Koivu isn't likely to earn much fantasy attention at this stage in his career.

  • Koivu dished out two assists in Thursday's 7-1 win over the Red Wings. After scoring two goals in his last game, Koivu took on more of a playmaking role in this one. The 36-year-old Finn is best left on the waiver wire despite his four points in the last two games, as it took him 25 games to amass his previous four points.

  • Koivu scored a pair of goals on his only two shots in a 5-4 win over Columbus on Tuesday. Koivu's goals came just under eight minutes apart in the second period and staked the Wild to a 4-1 lead. They were just the third and fourth goals of the season for the 36-year-old, who has experienced a steady decline in offensive production in each of the last four years.

  • Koivu relayed that he doesn't want to leave Minnesota, implying he won't lift his no-move clause ahead of Monday's trade deadline, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. The Wild may have been shopping Koivu with an uphill battle to make the playoffs, but it appears the 36-year-old captain won't agree to such a move. Koivu has been with the team since entering the league and played his 1,000th game this season. The Wild are only three points out of a playoff spot at the time of the report.
