Coyle Off To Hot Start In AHL

Charlie Coyle made quite an impact in his short time with the Saint John Sea Dogs. After just seven games in the American Hockey League he is making quite an impact with the Houston Aeros.

Coyle has five goals and an assist in seven AHL contests. He has a total of 15 shots on goal and is also a +3

His latest offensive outburst came on Saturday night against the Milwaukee Admirals where he netted two goals in Houston’s 4-0 win. One of his goals was a thing of beauty.

Coyle’s six points place him 7th in AHL rookie scoring behind the likes of Justin Schultz, Mikael Granlund, and Sven Baertschi. His five goals place him 7th overall in league goal scoring.

The Aeros have a young, talented lineup and currently sit 6th in the Western Conference with a 4-2-1-0 record. They are 4-0-1-0 in their last five games.

The other Sea Dogs connection playing in Houston, Zack Phillips, has a goal and assist in six games.

Houston is back in action on Friday night when they travel to Oklahoma City to take on the loaded Barons.
