Charlie Coyle had a decent week with a goal and an assist, in a week where the Wild dropped all four games they played. Coyle has really gone the way of the line that he’s on, and when paired up with some good offensive talent, he’s responded on the scoresheet. Coyle notched a goal against Nashville and an assist against San Jose, fired 5 shots and was 63% on faceoffs in the first clash with Chicago,  and like much of the team, had a forgettable night when the Wild went to Chicago.

To say that Coyle has been a disappointment so far this year would be a slight understatement, but he response to being put with top 6 talent has been promising, and his 4 points in his last 5 games could be a sign that he, unlike the team, is finding a little bit of a groove.
