The Skinny
Formerly drafted by the San Jose Sharks, Coyle was brought to Minnesota in the trade that sent Brent Burns to the Bay Area and Coyle immediately became one of the Wild’s top prospects.

It sounds like Coyle is going to be heading back to Boston University this season, and that’s probably best for him at this point, but the young power forward is going to be a staple in front of the net for the Wild for years to come.

Coyle has a very projectable frame and will grow into it well at BU, where he put up 7 goals and 26 points in 37 games for the Terriers

Coyle will return to Boston University next season.

in his freshman season. Coyles six points for Team USA at the World Juniors is what has caught everyone’s attention, though.

A strong skater, Coyle is already garnering a lot of attention and excitement in Minnesota and rightly so.

This Season

He’ll be back at BU this season and will likely find himself in the Terriers’ top six in their quest for a National Championship.

He’ll get a lot of ice time in a lot of key situations, and you can’t ask for much more for your top prospects.

There is an outside chance that Coyle could make the team right out of camp (if he’s there), but I would be very surprised if the Wild don’t let him play at least one more season in the NCAA.

Hockey’s Future has Coyle listed as a first-line forward who may reach his potential, and Coyle is thought to be one of the premiere power forward prospects out there right now.

He has great strength and vision as well being a terrific passer and having a tremendous shot. He does, however, need to shoot the puck more in order to make himself more of a threat in the offensive zone and to complement his tremendous passing to round out his game.
