Coyle appeared to injure himself in a collision with Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano midway through the second period.
The second-year forward centers the Wild's second line and second power-play units. He had eight goals and 14 points in 37 games as a rookie last season, but is scoreless through four-plus periods so far this season.
Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
