Miika Koivisto, newly crowned world champion with the Finnish national team, joins SC Bern from the KHL's Dynamo Moskva. Blick already reported the 28-year-old's signing a few days ago, which was now confirmed by the club.

Having only played in his home country up until a year ago, Bern will be the second foreign team the Finn will play for. The defenceman also participated in the last two World Championships as well as the 2018 Olympics.
