Accelerating to 2010--UPDATED

Thayer Academy right wing Charlie Coyle, originally committed to BU for 2011, will accelerate and graduate next June, according to US Hockey Report. He’ll now enter BU in the fall of 2010. The change in plans returns Coyle to his original graduating class as he repeated his freshman year after transferring from Weymouth H.S. to Thayer.

Coyle will be skating for the EJHL South Shore Kings this season. Incoming freshman Ben Rosen was an all-star defenseman for the Kings last season and Kevin Gilroy was a top-scoring forward for the Kings, the previous season.

Coyle, who had committed to BU last October, is coming off a strong performance at the USA Hockey Select 17 development camp Rochester. There, he tied for third in scoring with 9 points in 5 games and played in the event’s all-star game. In the NHL's early "players to watch" ratings, Coyle received an "A." Fellow 2010 recruit class member Yasin Cisse received a "B." There's another familiar name on the NHL list, Tom O'Regan, Jr., son of former Terrier standout center Tom O'Regan. A left wing at St. Sebastian's who also played in Rochester at the Select 17s, he, too, earned a "B" rating.
