Sharks Pick RW Charlie Coyle

With the 28th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, the San Jose Sharks took right wing Charlie Coyle. NHL.com's prospect profiles contains this information on the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder out of the EJHL:

Charlie is a skilled forward, who can play a power game as well as a finesse game. He has very good size and athleticism. He has very soft hands and is a confident puck handler. His passes are accurate and proper for the situation. He has a long and strong stride and beats defenders with his acceleration and puck skills. He has a very good wrist shot to support his passing skills in his role as a major contributor to his team's offense. He should, however, shoot the puck more than he does to take advantage of his excellent shot.

Doug Wilson, the Sharks general manager could be seen with a very large smile on his face as he Sharks prepared to make their pick. SB Nation's New Jersey Devils blog, In Lou We Trust, has a prospect profile on Coyle as well.
