Coyle preparing for shot at pros

Found a good article on Jace Coyle from the Cranbrook Daily Townsmen.

The article talks about how Coyle changed his mind from playing junior B hockey and going for a scholarship, to getting listed by the Spokane Chiefs and eventually a contract with the Dallas Stars. The article also mentions that Willie Desjardins tried to get the Stars to draft Jace Coyle however they only had 5 picks so they signed him as a free agent instead.

The stars weren't the only team interested, the Islanders tried to get him to play for their echl club after the Tigers were knocked out of the playoffs by Calgary Hitmen in round 2.
