As draft approaches, Coyle’s stock gains

Coyle's performance at the recent NHL Combine, placing in the top 10 in 10 different categories of the physical testing, has, along with his on-ice skills, attracted attention from many NHL teams.

An SB Nation blog focused on the N.J. Devils, one of the late first-round teams that has shown interest in Coyle, assesses his strengths as an NHL prospect.

Looking back
Following a strong season in Phoenix, veteran defenseman Adrian Aucoin has re-upped with the Coyotes.

The Globe also talks with newly appointed prep school coaches Tony Amonte and Scott Young.

The Predators’ trade of Jason Arnott to New Jersey was motivated, in part, by a desire to allow ex-Terrier All-American Colin Wilson to assume a bigger role in Nashville’s offense, reports OntheForecheck.com. Preds’ assistant general manager Paul Fenton, a former Terrier forward, says “"It's a natural progression to have him take over the #1 [center] position," while Red Light Hockey blogger Ryan Porth tweeted, "The Colin Wilson Era has begun in Nashville!"

Looking ahead

2013 recruit Matt Grzelcyk, a Belmont Hill defenseman, will be in Rochester this week for USA Hockey's Select 16 development tournament. Among the participants are Gavin Stoick, a power forward reportedly on BU's radar, forward Jarrid Privitera, younger brother of 2011 recruit Alexx Privitera, and forward Daniel O'Regan, son of former Terrier amd NHL forward Tom O'Regan.
