Minnesota Wild Sign Charlie Coyle, 2010 1st-Round Pick, To 3-Year Deal

The Minnesota Wild have signed 2010 first-round pick Charlie Coyle, further solidifying the team's collection of young talent.

The Minnesota Wild on Thursday announced the signing of Charlie Coyle, a first-round draft pick in 2010.

Coyle was originally drafted by the San Jose Sharks. He was obtained by the Wild in the Brent Burns deal last summer. Coyle's contract is reportedly a three-year, entry-level deal.

Coyle hails from East Weymouth, Mass., and has twice played for the U.S. in the World Junior Championship.

The Wild are currently mired in 12th place in the West, but the roster is flush with young talent. Coyle, 19, joins the Wild's 2011 first-round pick, Jonas Brodin, who has already signed a three-year deal, as well as forward Brett Bulmer and defensemen Zack Phillips and Johan Larson, each of who has already signed three-year deals.

The Wild's first- and second-round picks from 2010 should also be on board soon: First-rounder Mikael Granlund is reportedly expected to sign with the team this summer, while Jason Zucker is expected to join Minnesota once he finishes his season with the Denver Pioneers.
