Coyle Set for Bruins Debut in St. Louis

Will be Boston's third-line center in road trip finale

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

ST. LOUIS - Charlie Coyle certainly made a good first impression on Friday afternoon.

During a 2-on-2 drill at his first practice with the Bruins, the 26-year-old gave his new teammates a sneak peak at his abilities with an impressive surge through the middle of the ice. He twice danced around Karson Kuhlman, left a nifty drop pass to Matt Grzelcyk, and just missed tapping home the return feed at the net front.

"Saw him in practice today. He's a great skater, he can move it, he's pushing the pace, he creates time and space for the other guys out there with him," said David Backes, who will start off as Coyle's right wing on Boston's third line. "That's a good quality to have. He's pretty reserved, a little quiet, so maybe we'll get him to use his outside voice out there and communicate and that will only help us gain some chemistry and make some plays and score some goals."

You envision you're playing for the hometown team…so obviously it's a cool moment right now, and I don't think it's fully hit me, but I'm pretty excited."- Charlie Coyle on being traded to his hometown team

TWEET OF THE WEEK (WEEK 25): @ConorRyan_93 (Conor Ryan, Boston Sports Journal): "Important takeaway from today's media availability: Brandon Carlo used to own a pet guinea pig named "Monte" Carlo."

For Coyle, Trade to Bruins Fulfills Childhood Dream

East Weymouth native thrilled to be joining hometown team

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

LAS VEGAS - Charlie Coyle knows there will be plenty of emotions running through his mind on Tuesday night when he steps onto the TD Garden with the Spoked-B across his chest for the first time. A native of East Weymouth, Mass., the 26-year-old dreamed of playing in the National Hockey League and one day donning the Black & Gold.

"You've got me smiling just thinking about it," said Coyle, who was acquired from the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night in exchange for Ryan Donato and a 2019 conditional fifth-round pick.

"I'm watching Bruins games growing up in the Boston area, so that's what you envision. We all played street hockey in front of your house…or just skating on the pond when you're younger, you envision playing for the hometown team.

"I definitely did some of that when I was younger. Obviously it's a cool moment right now and I don't think it's fully hit me, but I'm pretty excited."
