Coyle is slated to undergo an offseason knee procedure, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. The report indicates that the procedure will address a knee issue that the forward played through this past season. Coyle, who logged six goals and 16 points in 51 regular-season contests, expects to be ready for training camp. Looking ahead to the 2021-21 campaign, the 29-year-old, who's under contract with Boston through 2025-26, is in line to reprise his role as the team's No. 3 center.
Coyle is set to undergo surgery to address an undisclosed injury, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. The Bruins have yet to release an expected timetable for Coyle's recovery, so at this point it isn't clear if he's in danger of missing time at the start of next season. Coyle struggled to score this year, finishing the campaign with just 16 points in 51 games after racking up 37 points through 70 contests in 2019-20, so he'll be a risky prospect heading into next season's fantasy drafts.
Coyle scored a goal on four shots and added two hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders in Game 2. Coyle struck just 2:38 into the first period. The 29-year-old center has picked up two goals and an assist in seven playoff contests. He's filled a third-line center role with 12 shots on net, 20 hits and a minus-2 rating. Coyle will see some power-play time, but he's not likely to add much more than depth scoring and some physicality.
Coyle (upper body) recorded two hits, two blocked shots and 15:08 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Capitals in Game 1. Coyle returned after a four-game absence and he played on the Bruins' third line. The 29-year-old disappointed with only 16 points in 51 outings during the regular season. He'll provide some physicality, but expectations should be tempered for his scoring output in the playoffs.
Coyle (upper body) is in the lineup for Saturday's Game 1 against Washington, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports. Coyle hasn't played since May 4 but will make his return for Saturday's postseason opener. He's expected to skate on the third line with Nick Ritchie and Sean Kuraly.
