2010 NHL Draft 28th Pick, San Jose Selects Charlie Coyle, South Shore Center

The San Jose Sharks have taken Eastern Junior Hockey League Rookie of the Year Charlie Coyle with the 28th overall selection. Somewhat of a surprising pick which still seems to be the theme of this year's first round, Coyle had 63 points in 42 games in the EJHL and will be attending Boston College in the fall. 

In Lou We Trust, our New Jersey Devils site, has these things and more to say about Coyle

Ultimately, I am led to believe that he could end up breaking through as a bottom six winger. Not exactly an exciting outcome, but he may be far more likely to get there in that role than other prospects in this range. How his offense develops could determine how high he gets. Coyle was productive in his league, and he was able to produce a few goals in international play and get invited to the evaluation camp for the US WJC team. That's not nothing.

Coyle is a work in progress for the Sharks and may be able to break the team in three or four years.
