RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Taylor Beck.
Beck was a late-season callup last year, filling in for Paul Gaustad who landed on the IR in March. Beck put in a very solid showing, registering three goals and four assists in 16 games, averaging roughly 16 minutes per night with some of that coming on the power play. Beck was leading the AHL Milwaukee Admirals with 41 points in 50 games at the time of his callup and the scoring prowess he displayed during his final two seasons in junior (188 points in 123 games at need, so he is likely to get a long look at training camp this year. He may even land himself a spot on one of the top two lines if all goes well.
Beck, 19, was a third-round pick (No. 70 overall) by Nashville in 2009. He played for the OHL's Guelph Storm this past season and won the 2010 Jim Mahon Memorial Trophy after leading all right wingers in scoring (39 goals, 54 assists, 93 points). He is expected to battle for a roster spot in September, but will likely begin the season back in major junior.
