Coyle reveals how he balances his personal and professional life

In the midst of last August, a unique challenge presented itself to Charlie Coyle. With his impending marriage to then-fiancée Danielle set in Minneapolis, the couple faced a decision regarding their cherished golden retrievers, Bodie and Gracie.

Air travel wasn't an option for the four-legged duo, leaving them with a distinct choice: leave the pups behind in Massachusetts or embark on a cross-country road odyssey spanning 1,400 miles.

Ultimately, the decision was crystal clear for both Charlie and Danielle. "They're our family," Coyle asserted with unwavering conviction. The prospect of their wedding day felt incomplete without the presence of their canine companions, even if it meant a trace of dog hair on their formal attire. "Absolutely worth it!" he chimed in.

As the horizon of the 2023-24 NHL season beckons, Coyle's calendar is primed for an energetic shuffle. His role in the Bruins' lineup is set to expand notably in the wake of Patrice Bergeron's retirement and David Krejci's future uncertainty.

Yet, the whirlwind doesn't confine itself to the ice. Coyle and Danielle are on the precipice of welcoming their first child this summer, adding a new dimension to their bustling lives.

Further underscoring his bustling life, Coyle recently assumed the mantle of "Hometown Treat Officer" for Wellness Pet Company, a distinction he shares with his furry partners, Bodie and Gracie.

In an email exchange with, Coyle delved into his collaboration with the pet wellness entity and the profound significance of being a dedicated pet parent, even amidst the demanding rigors of a professional athlete's existence.
