Expected to return to college

Shoulder
August 2, 2021
Beecher, who is approximately five months removed from labrum surgery, expects to play for the University of Michigan in 2021-22, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Beecher's sophomore campaign at Michigan finished prematurely, as the 2019 first-round pick was forced to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery after just 16 games, in which he racked up four goals and eight points. So, it makes sense that he and the Bruins have evidently decided another season of college hockey makes sense at this stage in his development. Beecher could, however, sign his entry-level deal following the conclusion of the NCAA season if he performs well for Michigan this year.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Since being taken 30th overall by the Bruins at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, Beecher's star has been on the rise. His first-round selection, originally viewed by some as a bit of a reach, now looks like a strong one following the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder's outstanding performance in this year's World Junior Summer Showcase. While the 18-year-old center worked as a bottom-six forward with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program Under-18 team last season, he was given the opportunity to play in a top-six role during the WJSS, and responded by scoring four goals in five games. Beecher, who is bound for the University of Michigan this fall, is years (not months) away from an NHL job, but if he is able to fully harness his excellent size/speed combo and continue to develop his scoring touch, he could end up centering Boston's first or second line down the road.
