Charlie Coyle exceeded the expectations of fans and media alike during the course of the 2019-20 NHL season. On Wednesday, that accomplishment was recognized. Coyle has been named the winner of NESN’s 7th Player Award. He was selected by a fan vote on NESN.com.

NESN’s 7th Player Award is an annual award presented to the Bruin who “exceeded the expectations of Bruins fans during the season”. The team announced that a feature highlighting Coyle’s accomplishments will air on Thursday during NESN’s pre-game coverage. It starts at 6:00 p.m. in advance of the Bruins exhibition tilt with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Charlie Coyle, 28, scored 37 points (16 g, 21 a) in 70 games. It was his first full-season as a member of the Bruins. Coyle was acquired by the club from the Minnesota Wild at the 2019 trade deadline. The 6-foot-3 center ranked fifth on the team in goals, seventh in assists, sixth in scoring, and averaged the fifth-most ice time (16:47) among forwards.

Coyle shined in the postseason last spring. He tied for the team lead with 16 points (9 g, 7 a) in 24 postseason games en route to an Eastern Conference Championship.

On November 27, 2019, Coyle signed a six-year contract extension with the club through the 2025-26 season.

Coyle has played 570 NHL games, scoring 285 points (109 g, 176 a).

In addition to the 7th Player Award, Coyle will receive $5,000 to donate to the charity of his choice.

The Award was won last year by Chris Wagner. Charlie McAvoy (2018), David Pastrnak (2017, 2015), Brad Marchand (2016, 2011), Tuukka Rask (2010) and David Krejci (2009) are the other current Bruins who have received the honor.
