2007-08: Jace Coyle posted 1 goal and 8 assists in 52 games with the Spokane Chiefs. Was traded to Medicine Hat in the off-season.
2008-09: Posted 8 goals, 16 assists, 74 PIM, and a minus-13 in 72 games with Medicine Hat.
2009-10: Posted 10 goals and 36 assists in 68 games with Medicine Hat of the WHL. Also posted a plus-14 rating and 64 PIM. Posted 3 goals and 1 assists in 12 playoff games. Signed an entry-level deal with the Dallas Stars in July 2010.
2010-11: Finished his overage season with the Medicine Hat Tigers with 22 assists, 28 points and a plus-18 rating in 49 games. He came up with a huge performance for the Tigers in the postseason, registering 15 points (to lead all club d-men by more than double, fourth on the club overall) in 15 games. Additionally, those 15 points were third among all Western League defensemen. Saw copious amounts of power play time.
2011-12: Coyle split his first pro season between Dallas affiliates Texas (AHL) and Idaho (ECHL). Coyle saw limited ice time with the Texas Stars – appearing in 48 games – and was minus-ten with 1 goal, 4 assists and 6 penalty minutes. Texas missed the AHL playoffs after finishing last in the West Division. Coyle was loaned to Idaho for three games in December and spent most of January with the Steelheads. In 13 ECHL games he was minus-three with 2 assists and had 10 penalty minutes.
Smooth skating offensive defenseman that can quarterback a power play to some degree. Speedy puck rusher whose right-handed shot is an asset with the man advantage. Shies away from physical contact even at the junior level. Needs to improve his positioning, he won’t be able to “recover” as well at faster levels. Plays a pretty laissez-faire defensive game which makes him a tough sell at even strength. Questionable decision maker.
Potential: AHL offensive defenseman.
Will try for a spot with Texas of the AHL, but may start out in Idaho (ECHL).
