Following in the footsteps

BU 2010 recruit Charlie Coyle's hockey career has been following a similar path to the one previously taken by his cousin, former Terrier and NHL standout Tony Amonte.

Coyle has been a high-scoring forward at Thayer, prepping for his college years in Scarlet & White. Now, just as his famous relative did, he’s earned the opportunity to wear Team USA colors. Off a strong performance at the USA Hockey Select 17 festival where he was third in scoring overall, Coyle was named to the U.S. U-18 squad that will play in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in Slovakia beginning Aug. 11.

As reported recently Coyle, who led Thayer in scoring with 20-28-48, is accelerating his education to graduate next June and will skate next season for the South Shore Kings of the EJHL.

Coyle spoke with the Quincy Patriot Ledger about making the Select team and the upcoming international event.
