Simple question guys. I'm wondering whether Mikko Koivu is still TPS' first line center. I noticed that he only has 4 points in 8 games. Did he lose his position after returning from the injury? Thanks.
Seems like it yes.
He played second line between Vahalahti and Metsäranta(interesting player BTW)
My guess is that it is because of the chemistry between Kai Nurminen and Mikko Eloranta on the new look first line while Mikko has superb chemistry with Vahalahti on the second line. Personally I think he will be back on the first line when Alatalo is back from his injury, the lines are being juggled around with a little until then.
