Matt Beleskey: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Beleskey only played 35 games with the Ducks last season, totaling 10 points on three goals and seven assists. He did, however, make six playoff performances with the Ducks, though it was followed by surgery to repair a torn labrum in May. Still considered a prospect, fantasy owners need Beleskey to stay healthy before he can be an attractive pickup in any league.
Beleskey played his first full season with the Ducks in 2009-10. With 18 points and a minus-10 rating, his value to the Ducks is not his point production. What he brings to the team is his versatility as the coaching staff can place him in a variety of different roles based on need and situation. If the Ducks commit to a true third scoring line, Beleskey would benefit by a rise in his point totals.
Beleskey received his first taste of the NHL in 2009, playing two games without scoring a point. Don't let the lack of goal production fool you however as Beleskey has proven to be a goal scorer in the OHL with 41 goals in 2007-08. He is certain to begin the season in the AHL and will be called up once injuries start to hit the Ducks.
The Ducks appear to have gotten an excellent value when they were able to nab Beleskey in the fourth round of the 2006 draft. He's steadily improved his offensive production at Belleville (OHL) in his four seasons there, while racking up 41 goals and 49 assists in 62 games for the Bulls last season. He seems destined for an eventual top-six forward spot in Anaheim, but look for Belesky to spend his time with the Ducks' new AHL affiliate in Iowa this season.
