Wild ink forward Charlie Coyle to five-year extension

St. Paul, MN, United States (4E Sports) - The Minnesota Wild have signed forward Charlie Coyle to a five-year contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2019-20 season.
"Charlie's size, overall skill set, and character give him a chance to emerge as a top power forward in the game and we're happy he will be doing that in the State of Hockey for years to come," said Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher.
"I'm really excited to be part of this organization for the next five years, and I know my family is very happy — a lot of people to thank for this over all," said the 22-year-old Coyle.
Coyle has collected two points, a plus-3 rating and 10 penalty minutes (PIM) in four games this season with Minnesota.
The 6-foot-3, 221-pound forward has 46 points, 71 PIM and 164 hits in 111 career NHL games with the Wild while averaging 16:19 in time on ice per game.
Last season, he recorded 30 points in 70 games and ranked third on the team in hits. He established career highs in hits, faceoffs won, shots and TOI in a game last season.
Coyle was acquired from the San Jose Sharks with Devin Setoguchi and a 2011 first-round selection in exchange for Brent Burns and a 2012 second-round selection on June 24, 2011.
Coyle was selected by San Jose in the first round (28th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
