The Minnesota Wild have activated forward Charlie Coyle from long-term injured reserve, the team announced on Monday.

The Wild placed forward Zach Parise on long-term injured reserve due to lingering back issues in a corresponding move.

Coyle suffered a right fibula fracture back in early October and was initially thought to miss 6-8 weeks, making his early return impressive.
