Thinking Hockey in July

BU standout defenseman and now future Boston Bruin Dave Warsofsky stopped by NESN recently to talk about his chance to fulfill two dreams - play for BU, and play for the Bruins... profiled the San Jose Sharks 2010 draft picks, and had this to say about first rounder (and incoming BU freshman) Charlie Coyle (full link here

"Charlie Coyle, RW - South Shore Kings (EJHL)
1st Round, 28th Overall
6'2, 200lbs

San Jose was looking to add size on the wing, and they weren't picky about where it came from.

Coyle is a solidly-built center/right-wing from the Eastern Junior Hockey League. With the South Shore Kings, he posted 21 goals, 42 assists, and 60 penalty minutes in 42 games. For his efforts, the 18-year-old was named Rookie of the Year, as well as the recipient of the John Carlton outstanding student-athlete award.

With good up-and-down speed, aggressiveness, and soft hands, Coyle will be given time to develop into a power-forward role. Following in the footsteps of his cousin and former NHLer Tony Amonte, Coyle is slated to attend Boston University next year.

While strong on his skates, Coyle will work on his quickness and acceleration, which could determine if he is a future offensive contributor or a checking forward."

With the fall semester on the radar, that means it's time to start thinking about BU hockey 24/7. In the coming weeks, I hope to have a mock up of potential lines (so take note, Parker). It'll probably be way off knowing Parker but whatever I'm doing it and sticking by it. So you have that to look forward to, which is nice...
