Coyle selected 28th overall by San Jose

The San Jose Sharks made 2010 recruit Charlie Coyle their first round draft choice in the 2010 NHL draft, picking him 28th overall. Coyle, who was ranked 24th among North American skaters, was among a record eleven American players taken in the first round of the draft. The Sharks have gone shopping at BU three other times in recent years, selecting Dan Spang in the 2nd round in 2002, John McCarthy in the 7th round in 2006 and Nick Bonino in the 6th round of 2007.

Coyle becomes the 10th BU player taken in the first round of an NHL draft, joining Colin Wilson, Kevin Shattenkirk, Ryan Whitney, Rick DiPietro, Jeff Kealty, Scott Lachance, Keith Tkachuk, Scott Young and David Quinn.

"(Charlie) has the potential to be a top-6 forward with size," said Sharks Director of Scouting Tim Burke. "He has good size, is very athletic, a well-rounded player. He does a lot of things well."

The 6-2, 202, RW/C from E. Weymouth, Mass., was EJHL Rookie of the Year this past season, scoring 63 points for the South Shore Kings and also joined the U.S. NTDP U18s for the Four Nations Tournament in Finland, where he scored the game-winning goal in the tournament final.
