The rookie publicity then went to defenseman Jonas Brodin. The steadiness in the 19-year-old’s play was astounding. He was on the ice for nearly 30 minutes with partner Ryan Suter on Tuesday.

And yet when you talk Wild rookies and fantastic futures, Coyle belongs in that conversation as prominently as does Brodin. The big right winger is always making plays, on both ends of the ice.

Coyle came to the Wild with Devin Setoguchi in the trade that sent Brent Burns to San Jose on draft night in June 2011.

“I hadn’t seen him, but I heard a little about him — that he was a strong kid with a chance to be a good player,’’ Setoguchi said Tuesday.

And now?

“He gets to play with two of the best players in the Northwest Division,’’ Setoguchi said. “He’s making plays with those two guys.’’

Coyle is grateful for the opportunity to have Koivu and Parise as linemates.

“Playing any place on this team would be great,’’ Coyle said. “Being on a line with those two players … that is special.’’

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
