Coyle Named CHL Player Of The Week

Saint John Sea Dogs forward Charlie Coyle has been named the Canadian Hockey League’s Player of the Week for the first week of the 2012 CHL Playoffs ending March 25.

“Coyle made his CHL playoff debut with two five-point games last week to lead the top ranked Sea Dogs to a 2-0 first round series lead over the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles,” states a CHL release. “In both games Coyle recorded a hat-trick and added two assists as first star of the contest including a 13-4 win on Friday and an 8-1 win on Saturday, both times tying a franchise record for most points in a single playoff game.”

Coyle was awarded six points on Friday originally but had an assist stripped of him by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League yesterday upon further review.

His 10 points place him first in QMJHL playoff scoring. He is averaging five points per game and 1.67 points per period. Not bad, not bad at all.

While Coyle was busy racking up points for the Sea Dogs this past weekend, his former team, the Boston University Terriers, saw their season come to an end at NCAA Regionals.

Jonathan Huberdeau is the only other Sea Dog to be named a CHL Player of the Week this season.

Coyle and the Dogs look to take a 3-0 series lead tonight in Cape Breton against the Screaming Eagles.
