Former South Shore Kings standout Charlie Coyle, who played with the Kings as members of the Eastern Junior Hockey League (the forerunner of the NCDC), was traded to the Boston Bruins on Wednesday evening.
Coyle suited up for the Kings during the 2009-10 season, and scored 63 points in 41 regular season games. The next season, he played his first of two years at Boston University. Coyle joined the Minnesota Wild, from which he was traded, in 2012. He posted 242 points in 479 regular season games with the Wild, along with 15 points in 44 playoff games.
Going to the Minnesota Wild for Coyle was another former King Ryan Donato. Donato played in the USPHL Premier (also a forerunner to the NCDC) in 2014-15, scoring 10 points in his 13 games there. Prior to the Kings, he was a member of the EHF Selects' Cape Cod Whalers organization. The full trade also included a fifth round draft pick going to the Wild along with Donato for Coyle.
