At the beginning of last week, Växjö announced that they had signed a contract with Finnish World Cup gold medalist Miika Koivisto, who started the season playing 15 games in Swiss Bern.
He debuted yesterday in Växjö's 4-1 victory away against Skellefteå, and today had to make his first home game for his new team. Then it became a success right away.Växjö in fine shape
With only 40 seconds left of the extension, he struck with a direct shot from the right drawing circle. The shot went straight into goal and meant that Växjö won the match against Färjestad by 3-2.
"When shooting there is always a chance to score," he said a few minutes later with a smile to C More.
After a tough start, SHL has gained momentum lately. The victory was the team's third straight and the team is now, at least temporarily, up on the playoffs.
- We're on the right track. When I came here I saw the last match before the break, against Luleå, and then they played well. Now these two matches since I came here we have also done way things, says Kovistio.
