Coyle played for Weymouth High School, a public school during his freshman year and helped the Wildcat varsity hockey team to their first ever finals appearance at the TD Garden vs. private school Boston College High School. The Wildcats beat notable private schools during the playoffs during their stunning run, knocking off schools like Malden Catholic, Austin Prep, and Central Catholic. He played for Thayer Academy in Braintree before finishing his senior season back with the Wildcats.
Coyle played Tier III Junior A ice hockey in the Eastern Junior Hockey League with the South Shore Kings, based in Foxboro, Massachusetts. In the first and only season with South Shore, he finishing fifth overall in scoring with 63 points in 42 games.
Coyle committed to play NCAA Division I college ice hockey with the Boston University Terriers of the Hockey East for the 2010–11 season. In his first game for the Terriers (an exhibition game against the University of Toronto), he scored two assists. He went on to record 26 points in 37 regular season games for the Terriers.
He was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. On June 25, 2011, he was traded to the Minnesota Wild for Brent Burns and second round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, along with Devin Setoguchi, and a first round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Charlie Coyle made his NHL debut on February 4, 2013. Wearing number 63, Coyle skated 12:44, with two shots and a hit. Coyle scored his first NHL goal (and point) against Joey MacDonald of the Calgary Flames on February 23, 2013.
Coyle scored a memorable goal against the Los Angeles Kings on March 30, 2013, while shooting a one-timer, Coyle got taken down to his knees, he got his own rebound and buried a backhand shot for his eighth goal of the season.
Coyle also got into his first NHL fight against the Columbus Blue Jackets, taking on Brandon Dubinsky, however he was given a match penalty for a hit on Artem Anisimov, which sparked the fight, but after further review from the league he was not given an further discipline.
Coyle switched his jersey number from 63 to 3, the same number he wore in College and Juniors. He also made headlines, by making a young fan named Henry's day by just making a simple wave, but the reaction from him was put on Youtube and became a hit. He later got to meet his new friend after a Wild practice.
