Terrier Recruit Profiles

Terrier Recruit Profiles is a new series in which we will attempt to bring you a brief rundown on the incoming Terrier recruits.

The first installment of Terrier Recruit Profiles is on Massachusetts homegrown forward Charlie Coyle. Coyle, a Weymouth, MA native, stands at 6'2", 207. Coyle played for both Weymouth H.S. and Thayer Academy in his high school hockey. In addition to his high school play, he plays in the Eastern Junior Hockey League, for the South Shore Kings. This season with the Kings he totaled 63 points on 21 goals and 43 assists (all of this according to the EJHL Website ). Coyle was named the 15th best recruit in CollegeHockey247's top 50 list, and was ranked 19th among North American skaters in the NHL scouting report (he is expected to be taken in the early first or second round of the upcoming NHL amateur draft). In an article from , one of Coyle's coaches said of the recruit: “He’s a powerful skater, a strong skater, and he can protect the puck real well along the boards.” Coyle plays mostly center and right wing for the Kings, and also mans the point on the power play. In the same article, Coyle's coach held high hopes for his collegiate career: "I think he is going to be a very good college player. He’ll go to BU next year and he’ll step right in. I think there will be an adjustment period, but he definitely has all the abilities and all the skills to step right into that level."

On coming to BU, Coyle said it was an easy decision: "My cousin Tony Amonte went to BU so I’ve always dreamed of going there and they were the first school to talk to me. It’s my dream school and I wouldn’t say no to them."

Needless to say, we are expecting big things from this incoming freshman.
