At 168, the Flames take Jack Beck. Highly intelligent, complementary winger. One of the smartest OHL players available IMO. Question is…can he play at a quicker pace and can he become more dominant on the puck to create his own chances? One to watch as he matures. #NHLDraft

In his rookie season, we found out that Beck can skate. He has quick feet and excellent acceleration with speed to burn that can take him around the outside of the defence when needed. He didn’t have many chances to use his speed with the 67’s considering he was the third option on his line, but that allowed him to show off his playmaking ability. Even though the points didn’t come as he would have liked, he was involved in the play and created plenty of scoring chances for his linemates.
