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.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
