Charlie Coyle is being sent back to AHL Houston after a five-game stint with the Minnesota Wild.

Coyle — a big 20-year-old forward the Sharks took 28th overall in 2010 — played five games for the Wild, failing to register a point despite an opportunity on the top line. (To be fair, nobody else on the team is scoring.)

Minnesota is understandably high on the Boston University product that also starred in the QMJHL with the Saint John Sea Dogs.

Some more time with the Aeros won’t hurt.

    no damage done. Coyle played well, almost scored a couple of times and did well against the boards vs. men who are 8 years or so older than him….Anytime in the NHL is a good thing for a young skater. Bright future for him and Zucker!!!

      I agree, let him go down and work on some of that stuff you only learn by playing in the NHL and keep his confidence high. This way you don’t have to worry about limiting his minutes and growth, a definite change from Resiborogh and company.
