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.
Coyle (upper body) practiced Thursday, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports.
Coyle, who last suited up May 4, is thus on track to be ready to play in Saturday's first-round opener against the Capitals. He's slated to man right wing on the Bruins' third line, which also features Sean Kuraly and Nick Ritchie. It's a trio with size and grit capable of chipping in some secondary scoring. Coyle finished the regular season with six goals and 16 points in 51 games, but he'll look to pick up the pace in the playoffs, where he's logged a 19/17/36 stat line through 81 career postseason contests.
Coyle (upper body) is expected to be ready for Saturday's Game 1 versus the Capitals, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Coyle missed the Bruins' last four regular-season games with the injury. Fantasy managers will want to check in ahead of Saturday's contest to confirm Coyle's status.
Coyle (upper body) practiced Sunday, but coach Bruce Cassidy said he may not return before the end of the regular season, Eric Russo of NHL.com reports.
Cassidy stopped short of ruling Coyle out for Monday's game against the Islanders or Tuesday's tilt with Washington, but Boston may opt to take it easy with Coyle to ensure he's good to go for the playoffs. Cassidy added that Coyle will be ready to go for the postseason regardless of his status for the final two regular-season contests.
Coyle (upper body) "should be back before long," according to coach Bruce Cassidy.
The Bruins have three regular-season games remaining and it's unclear if Coyle will be available for any of them. Getting the versatile forward back in time for the playoffs is likely Boston's priority. To date, Coyle has notched six goals and 16 points in 51 games, but the 29-year-old is certainly capable of picking up the pace in the postseason.
Coyle (upper body) won't play Thursday night against the Rangers.
Coyle, who left Tuesday's game versus the Devils in the third period, is viewed as day-to-day in advance of Saturday's rematch against the Rangers. In his absence Thursday, look for Jake DeBrusk to move up to the Bruins' third line, while Karson Kuhlman works on the team's fourth line. Coyle's been held to six goals and 16 points in 51 games to date, but beyond his modest numbers, he's managed to contribute in other ways and with the benefit of a little puck luck, he could pick up the pace in the playoffs.
Coyle (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game versus the Devils in the third period, and head coach Bruce Cassidy didn't have an update on his status after the game, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
It's unclear how exactly Coyle was hurt, but it was enough to keep him out for most of the final 20 minutes. The 29-year-old forward should be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game versus the Rangers.
Coyle collected a goal on four shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.
Coyle converted a partial breakaway 7:58 into the third period, putting the Bruins ahead 3-2 while mercifully ending his career-long goal drought at 28 games. With six goals in 48 games this season, it appears Coyle will fail to reach double-digits for the first time since his rookie campaign of 2012-13.
Coyle recorded an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Capitals.
Coyle is stuck in a 17-game goal drought, but he's shown signs of warming up lately. He has three assists in his last four outings. The 29-year-old forward is up to 12 points, 54 shots on net, 44 hits and 16 PIM through 36 contests overall, mainly in a middle-six role.
Coyle has been activated off the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list and will return to the lineup for Friday's game versus Washington, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Coyle missed Wednesday's game versus the Capitals due to the league's virus protocols, but he'll return to a middle-six role Friday. He's picked up five goals and eight points through 19 games this campaign.
Coyle was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Wednesday, John Shannon reports.
Coyle won't play in Wednesday's game versus the Capitals. Since it's unclear if Coyle tested positive or was just in close contact with an infected person, there's no clear timeline for his return.
Coyle scored two goals, one short-handed, in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Rangers while adding five shots, three hits and a plus-2 rating.
He potted Boston's first and last goals on the afternoon, with the latter coming late in the third period on a New York power play, squelching any chance of a Rangers comeback. Coyle has three goals and four points in the last four games while centering the Bruins' second line, but through 19 contests on the season the 28-year-old has only five goals and eight points.
Coyle scored a goal on three shots and went plus-2 in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Flyers.
Coyle tallied at 16:14 of the second period, sparking a stretch of three goals in 1:39 for the Bruins to take control. The goal was Coyle's third of the year -- the 28-year-old also has a pair of assists and 24 shots on net in 16 outings. With David Krejci (lower body) out, Coyle worked in a second-line role. The more time Krejci misses, the longer Coyle will have to stake a claim to more playing time.
Coyle (upper body) had one shot and won seven of 13 faceoffs (53.8 percent) in Monday's win over Washington.
Coyle was right back in the lineup despite suffering an injury two days earlier against the Capitals. He had a quiet night in the rematch but was able to log just under 16 minutes of ice time. Coyle has produced two goals and two assists in nine games this season.
Coyle (upper body) is expected to be in the lineup against Washington on Monday, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.
Prior to getting hurt, Coyle recorded two goals on 11 shots, two assists and five hits in his last five contests in which he logged 16:34 of ice time. The Massachusetts native figures to slot into a third-line center role and could rejoin the No. 2 power-play unit, as well.
Coyle has an upper-body injury and is questionable for Monday's game versus the Capitals, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.
Coyle logged 17:33 of ice time and four shots on net in Saturday's loss to the Capitals. The 28-year-old will be re-evaluated Monday, and there should be a better idea of his status following the team's morning skate. Sean Kuraly and Greg McKegg are both viable options to fill in if Coyle can't go.
