Wild trade Coyle to Bruins for Donato, 5th-rounder

Wild trade Coyle to Bruins for Donato, 5th-rounder

With the February 25 trade deadline approaching - and the Minnesota Wild in the midst of a 1-6-3 slump - the general manager made a significant change to his roster, sending longtime center Charlie Coyle to Boston in a trade for youngster Ryan Donato and a conditional fifth-round pick.

Coyle has 28 points in 60 games this season while averaging over 17 minutes per contest.

Coyle has spent his entire seven year career with the Wild, logging 91 goals and 151 assists for Minnesota.

The Wild now sport a 27-27-6 record and have a one-point lead over the Avalanche, Coyotes, Blackhawks and Canucks for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Four weeks ago, Wild general manager Paul Fenton told The Athletic that his trade deadline strategy was up in the air. "When I do go to sleep, I find myself crying like a baby, just like most babies do. I'm guaranteeing you I'm making phone calls, receiving phone calls, entertaining phone calls", Fenton said.

Donato struggled to carve out a role with Boston this season. The Bruins are now just two points ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs for second in the Atlantic Division. At just 22, Donato is certainly a play for the future, but he'll also debut Thursday against the Rangers for a Wild team that's still on the postseason bubble. He scored as many as 21 goals in the 2015/2016 season.
