The Boston Bruins made their first move of the trade deadline acquiring hometown kid Charlie Coyle from the Minnesota Wild.
Well, two hometown kids were swapped in the Boston Bruins first move of the trade deadline. Hopefully, this won’t be their last move.
The Boston Bruins traded away promising forward Ryan Donato (born in Scituate, Massachusetts) along with a 2019 conditional 5th round pick to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Charlie Coyle (born in Weymouth, Massachusetts).

Now it hurts to see Donato go. He had such a great start to his career but hasn’t been as productive this season. In 46 career NHL games, Donato has 11 goals and 7 assists, but in his first 12 games, he accumulated half of these points.
Finally some scoring
The Bruins are definitely getting something they need in this trade. Charlie Coyle will add some much-needed scoring depth. Coyle has 10 goals and 18 assists this season.
To put things in perspective, that is the same amount of points that Jake DeBrusk has.
If everything works out Coyle should be on the 3rd line to add some depth to the bottom 6. If the Bruins are able to execute another move they will have one of the best lineups in the league. Instead of having one amazing line they will have three great lines capable of scoring.
So this is a good move for the Boston Bruins, but hopefully this is just the beginning of the team’s trade deadline activity
