A native of Ylitornio, Finland, Koivisto moved to Rauma as a teenager in 1998 to play for Lukko, as northern Finland lacked an SM-liiga team at that time. After one year spent with the Lukko junior A team, Koivisto debuted in the SM-liiga in the 1999-2000 season, although he still split his time between the adult and the junior teams. In 2000, Koivisto appeared in the U18 World Championships and won the gold medal with Team Finland. He also represented Finland in the 2001 and 2002 World Junior Championships, coming home with silver and bronze, respectively.
After six mediocre seasons with Lukko, Koivisto moved to Tampere to play for Ilves. In his first season there he reached for the first time the 30 points mark, and the 40 points mark in the two following seasons.
In 2008, Koivisto returned to the north to play for Kärpät, the closest major club to Ylitornio, which had been promoted to SM-liiga in his absence. In Oulu Koivisto rose to stardom, scoring 62 points in 58 games during both his two seasons with Kärpät.
Koivisto signed a two-year contract with Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL on May 26, 2009. In in his first season with Metallurg in 2009–10, Koivisto struggled offensively scoring only 19 points in 51 games, he forewent his final year and signed a new two-year contract with Frölunda HC of the Elitserien on May 20, 2010.
