Charlie Coyle has bounced between lines and positions during the preseason.
The good news for the Wild is that he has been productive on the wing and at center during his exhibition appearances, with five points in two games. "Most successful teams, there's players on those teams where they bounce from center to wing based on injuries, based on needs," coach Mike Yeo said. "But they have that ability, and that makes them very useful players. Charlie's showing he can play on different types on lines, play in different positions." He has also taken on a role as a penalty killer. Oct 1 - 11:39 AM

Charlie Coyle notched three assists in Minnesota's 5-2 win over Columbus in preseason action on Thursday night.

The 23-year-old center had 35 points last season, and has the offensive ability to improve on that point total in 2015-2016. If you believe this to be his breakout year, save him for the late rounds or a waiver wire pickup.

Charlie Coyle scored his first goal of the playoffs, helping to seal Minnesota's 4-1 Game Five victory on Friday night.

Coyle's role was important, he got himself open and hit the net. But it was Thomas Vanek's hard work that helped set up the tally. Vanek beat Blues defender Jay Bouwmeester to the puck by the penalty box and rushed for the net. After being forced into the far corner, Vanek maintained control despite being surrounded by Bouwmeester, Patrik Berglund, and Alex Pietrangelo and found Coyle top of the right offensive corner for the one-timer.

Charlie Coyle believes the Wild are still in a good spot even after dropping game two on Saturday night.

The Wild took it to the Blues in game one, but St. Louis was able to respond with a big win on home ice. The series has been physical and Coyle liked the way his team responded in that department. "They came out physical, and we matched it if not better," Coyle said. "We’re in a good position. It’s a tied series right now, going back home [Monday]. We’ll take that."

Charlie Coyle scored a sneaky goal on Jonathan Bernier off a late first period faceoffs for his 11th of the season.

Coyle intentionally lost the faceoff, instead opting to intercept Trevor Smith's pull back to the point. The initial shot was flubbed, and Thomas Vanek would eventually put the puck on goal before Coyle finished on the rebound. Coyle now has 34 points in 73 games this season.

Charlie Coyle found the back of the net in a 3-1 victory versus Carolina on Friday.

It was Coyle's first goal since Feb. 7. After recording 30 points in 70 contests in 2013-14, the 23-year-old forward hasn't been able to take a significant step forward this season in terms of his offensive production. Nevertheless, it wouldn't be shocking to see him set a new career-high in 2015-16.

He managed to tuck the puck into the net from beyond the goal line to display his great hands. Coyle has six goals and 20 points in 47 matches this year.

The 22-year-old played a strong game for the Wild. Coyle has been playing better of late, but he hasn't taken a step forward offensively. He has five goals, 19 points and a minus-4 rating in 44 games this season. Coyle is still young and he still has a good amount of potential.

Charlie Coyle scored the Minnesota Wild's lone goal in a 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Coyle now has four goals and 14 assists for 18 points in 40 games this season. The 22-year-old is a nice complimentary player for the Wild, but probably isn't quite there as far as his fantasy value is concerned (at least in typical leagues).
