Charles Coyle was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1992. Coyle comes from good hockey bloodlines as his cousin Tony Amonte played 1,174 regular season NHL games and scored 900 points for five teams.

From 2007-2009, Charlie Coyle played his high school hockey at Thayer Academy prep school in Braintree, Massachusetts, where his cousin Amonte played. In two seasons, Coyle scored 34 goals with 51 assists. The big forward joined the South Shore Kings of the United States Premier Hockey League in 2009-10 and played with future Bruins teammate Chris Wagner. In one year with the Kings, the right-shot center scored 21 goals with 42 assists in 42 games and was named to the league’s All-Rookie Team.

Charlie Coyle chose to attend Boston University in 2010-11 and scored seven goals with 19 assists as a freshman. Coyle would play just 16 games with the Terriers the following season before leaving to play for the Saint John Sea Dogs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound forward had 38 points in 23 games and scored four goals for the United States U-20 National Team in the World Junior Championships.
