Koivu will be making his second career Olympic appearance; as an NHL rookie in 2006 at Turin, Koivu saw action on a checking line in eight games and did not pick up a point for the silver medal-winning Finns. He earned a silver medal at the 2007 World Championship, captured bronze at the 2006 Worlds and silver at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
