Wild forward Charlie Coyle has had a rough start to his season with just 13 points through 29 games. As a result, the team is dangling him in trade talks according to Michael Russo of The Athletic (subscription required). Russo notes that three Atlantic Division teams are believed to have shown some level of interest in Boston, Montreal, and Ottawa.
The Bruins have been looking for forward help for some time and have been linked to Coyle previously; his ability to play both center and the right wing would also be a plus for them. Russo adds that Montreal has shown interest prior to this season although they’re a couple of weeks away from having a bit of a logjam up front when Joel Armia returns. Ottawa’s long list of injuries continued to grow last week with Bobby Ryan and Matt Duchene set to miss a fair bit of time so they could certainly be on the lookout for some help up front as well.
Coyle is only two years removed from a 56 point season but he has struggled since then and his trade value has likely taken a hit since then.
