Sir Charles Scores First NHL Goal

Another former Sea Dog has scored his first NHL goal.

Charlie Coyle, called up again by the Minnesota Wild yesterday, scored his first National Hockey League goal on Saturday night against the Calgary Flames, tying the contest at 1-1 at 8:56 of the first.

As it turned out, this would be Minnesota's only goal of the game in a 3-1 loss. Coyle finished with two penalty minutes, one shot, and one hit in 14:23 of ice time. He was named the game's third star.

Here's Coyle post-game:

Coyle was playing in his sixth NHL game on Saturday. He had been held pointless in the previous games he has played in in his first season of pro hockey. He has not looked out of place with the Wild.

Sir Charles is having a good rookie year with the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros, recording 14 goals and 11 assists in 47 games.

Coyle joins Simon Despres and Jonathan Huberdeau has former Sea Dogs to score at the NHL level.
