Koviu – who also serves as Wild captain – is not a stranger to captaining his country, having done so on three prior occasions. He most recently served as captain at this year’s IIHF World Championship, where his team claimed silver.

The 33-year-old was also a member of the most recent installment of the World Cup in 2004 that saw Finland fall in the championship game to Canada.
