Charlie Coyle: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
We can't wait for the day when Minny's top line includes Zach Parise on the left side, Mikael Granlund in the middle and Mr. Charlie Coyle on the right. Coyle has already dominated the QMJHL and has everything he needs -- size, skill, speed, strength, smarts and sandpaper -- to do the same in the NHL. He's a natural center, but we get shivers when we think of him on the wing. Think David Backes and then add a bit more offense. Yes, he's that good. He won't have a full-time gig with the Wild until next season. But he needs to be stashed in keeper formats -- act now or forever hold your peace.
Coyle, originally drafted by the Sharks in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry draft, was traded to the Wild this past offseason as part of the Devin Setoguchi/Brent Burns swap. Last season, the power forward brought his offensive touch to Boston College, where he posted 26 points (7 G, 19 A) as a freshman. Coyle is a relatively unfamiliar name in fantasy circles, but that figures to change as the mega prospect should have little trouble working his way up the ranks.
The Sharks circled a lamp-lighting power forward with the 28th pick of the 2010 Entry Draft, nabbing Coyle at that spot. Just as his famed uncle Tony Amonte once did, Coyle will play for Boston University in 2010-11. He'll be fun to watch at Boston, but he shouldn't be in your peripherals just yet.
