Preds' Beck Sinks Sabres With GWG

News: Taylor Beck netted a game-winning power-play goal Saturday against Buffalo.
Analysis: It was the second goal in three games for Taylor Beck, who now has seven goals and 14 points in 53 games on the season. He saw just 12:14 of ice time Saturday, but he's an emerging depth scorer who can be of use in some very deep leagues.

Preds' Beck Dazzles After Rejoining Lineup

News: Taylor Beck registered an assist - just his 11th point of the season - in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: After sitting out four of the previous five games as a healthy scratch, Taylor Beck made his presence felt right away with a dazzling, no-look, behind-the-back pass from his knees to set up Matt Cullen for the Preds' only goal of the night. The play was a thing of beauty, to be sure, however Beck will need to start putting points up on the board with a little more regularity before we can start recommending him. This was a good start, though.

Preds' Beck Scratched

News: Taylor Beck has been a healthy scratch for three straight games, and four of the past five.
Analysis: With just two points in his previous 16 games, Taylor Beck has found himself squarely in coach Peter Laviolette's doghouse. He should not be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.

Preds' Beck Assists In Win Over Pens

News: Playing in just his second game back following a three-game absence due to illness, Taylor Beck registered an assist in Sunday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Taylor Beck now has nine points in 34 games this season, playing primarily on the Preds' fourth line with Paul Gaustad and Eric Nystrom. Despite his bottom-six role on the team, he does appear to have cemented himself a role in the Preds' lineup for the time being, so feel free to utilize him for fantasy purposes if you need him.

Preds' Beck Activated From IR

News: Taylor Beck (illness) has been activated from injured reserve, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck and Matt Cullen (upper body) have both been removed from injured reserve, heading into Saturday's game against the Wild. James Neal (lower body) remains on injured reserve, but he returned to practice Friday and has not been ruled out for Saturday.

Preds' Beck (Illness) Rejoins Team

News: Taylor Beck (illness) resumed skating with the Predators at Tuesday's morning skate.
Analysis: Taylor Beck skated as an extra forward during line rushes and will remain on injured reserve for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes. However, if he's able to get in a full practice Wednesday without any complications, he'll be a more serious candidate to return to the lineup for Thursday's tilt with the Stars.

Predators Move Beck To IR

News: Taylor Beck (illness) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: The Predators ruled out Taylor Beck for both of their games over the weekend due to the illness, but the placement on IR ensures that he'll miss an additional game Tuesday, when the Predators return home to face the Hurricanes. The nature and severity of Beck's illness remains unknown at this time, but since none of the players on the Nashville roster have dealt with the mumps this season, there's a good chance the forward may have avoided that nasty virus. Miikka Salomaki and Viktor Stalberg were recalled from AHL Milwaukee to act as depth while Beck remains unavailable.

Preds' Beck Day-To-Day With Illness

News: Taylor Beck will miss the Predators' upcoming road trip due to illness, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: There are no additional details on Taylor Beck's condition at this time, however the Preds play Saturday and Sunday at Los Angeles and Anaheim, respectively, so it looks like he will miss both those games. Look for a possible return next Tuesday when the team returns home to play the Hurricanes.

Beck's Two Points Not Enough For Preds

News: Taylor Beck scored a goal, picked up an assist and handed out a game-high six hits in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Boston.
Analysis: The point snapped a seven-game scoreless skid for Taylor Beck, who still boasts just eight points in 25 games on the year. He's displayed plentiful point-getting ability at the AHL level, but we're still waiting for that NHL breakout.

Preds' Beck Slated To Play Saturday

News: Taylor Beck (concussion) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Wild, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck has been out since Dec. 9 with the concussion, but it doesn't appear as though he's been dealing with any symptoms over the last couple of days. With James Neal (illness) scratched from Saturday's contest, Beck will reenter the lineup on the Preds' fourth trio alongside Derek Roy and Calle Jarnkrok.

Preds' Beck Dealing With Concussion

News: Taylor Beck has been diagnosed with a concussion and will miss at least the next three games, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck is not traveling with the Predators on their three-game road trip that kicks off Tuesday in Colorado, instead opting to remain back in Nashville to aid his recovery. The Predators will swap him off their fourth line for Paul Gaustad (lower body), who will rejoin Tuesday's lineup after missing the previous two games.

Preds' Beck Snaps Off Three Points In Blowout Win

News: Taylor Beck scored twice -- the second on the power play -- and tacked on an assist in Tuesday's 9-2 rout of the Leafs.
Analysis: Taylor Beck's two first-period goals helped Nashville to a 3-0 lead by the intermission and snapped an eight-game scoreless skid dating back to the end of October. A reliable performer at the AHL level, Beck has yet to break out in his limited NHL action, but his season-high 16:18 of ice time Tuesday (including more than two minutes on the power play) is a promising development.

Preds' Beck Riding Pine

News: Taylor Beck was a healthy scratch for the third consecutive game Tuesday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Taylor Beck has only managed to find his way into the lineup for two games this season, posting an assist in one of them. For now, coach Peter Laviolette is opting to roll with a combination of Viktor Stalberg, Olli Jokinen, Gabriel Bourque and Eric Nystrom as his checking line forwards, leaving Beck on the outside looking in. He should not be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.

Preds Ink Beck To One-Year Contract

News: Taylor Beck signed a one-year, $550,000 contract with the Predators on Tuesday.
Analysis: The 23-year-old Taylor Beck had previously been attending Predators camp on a tryout basis, so his earning a contract would seem to bolster his chances of making the squad. Even so, there's still a chance that the Preds waive him if they decide to proceed with other options in their bottom six, banking on the fact that Beck will more than likely clear waivers and remain in the system at AHL Milwaukee, where he totaled 49 points last season.

Preds' Rookie Beck Remains Unsigned

News: Taylor Beck has been a participant at training camp this week, despite being an unrestricted free agent, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: Taylor Beck, who is coming off a three-year, $2.7 million entry-level deal, has spent most of his time playing for AHL Milwaukee, posting 44 goals and 86 assists over the last three years. He has appeared in 16 career games for the Preds, including seven last season. Unless he makes a major impression in training camp, expect him to start the season back in the minors, when and if he gets re-signed.

Predators Assign Beck To AHL Milwaukee

News: The Predators assigned Taylor Beck to AHL Milwaukee on Friday.
Analysis: Taylor Beck appeared in seven games with the Predators this season but did not record a point. He did record 11 goals and 16 assists in 35 games with Milwaukee earlier this season, so he will likely be among the top options should the Predators need to bring up a forward down the road.

Preds Recall Beck

News: Taylor Beck was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Wednesday.
Analysis: Taylor Beck was recalled by the Predators for about a week in November, but has otherwise served as the top scorer at AHL Milwaukee, netting 11 goals and 16 assists over 35 games. It's unclear if he'll serve as much more than a fourth liner or healthy scratch during this stint with the Predators.

Preds Reassign Beck To AHL

News: Taylor Beck was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Thursday, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck was only up with the parent club to keep a seat warm for promising youngster Filip Forsberg, who quickly earned his way back to Nashville after picking up six points in four AHL games. Should Forsberg fail to pick up his play upon returning to the NHL level, Beck could again be called upon to serve as a depth forward.

Predators Recall Beck

News: The Predators recalled Taylor Beck from AHL Milwaukee on Thursday, Joshua Cooper of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck will take the roster spot of Filip Forsberg, who was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Thursday. Beck saw action in 16 games with the Predators last season, and was rather productive, amassing three goals and four assists over that span. He has five points in eight games with Milwaukee to date, so he could actually provide more offense than most would expect from a midseason call-up.

Preds Demote Beck

News: Taylor Beck was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck had a decent showing in a brief stint with the Preds last year (three goals, four assists in 16 games) and was thought to have a great chance to crack the lineup full-time this season. However, those expectations will clearly have to be put on hold for the time being. For single-season fantasy formats, feel free to remove him from your draft list effective immediately.

Predators' Beck Out Tuesday

News: Taylor Beck will not play Tuesday due to an upper-body injury, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The nature of Taylor Beck's injury is unknown, but he will not be available Tuesday night. It remains to be seen if he will play in either of the Predators' two remaining games after Tuesday.

Beck Active in Nashville Loss

News: Taylor Beck tallied one of Nashville's two goals in Friday's loss to Dallas.
Analysis: The young winger has a modest seven points in 13 games with the big club and snapped a four-game points drought with his goal on Friday. Odds are he won't score too much for the offensively challenged predators, but he could be worth keeping an eye on.

Preds' Beck Notches Two Assists

News: Taylor Beck assisted on the game-tying and game-winning goals Tuesday against Colorado.
Analysis: That's six points in eight games for Taylor Beck to start his NHL career, and he's gone plus-5, too. The outlook is promising for the 21-year-old winger.

Preds' Rookie Beck Nets First NHL Points

News: In just his third NHL game, Taylor Beck notched his first career points - a goal and an assist - during Saturday's 5-2 win over Columbus.
Analysis: Given the scoring prowess Taylor Beck displayed during his final two seasons in junior (188 points in 123 games at OHL Guelph), Beck certainly has the scoring touch the Preds are looking for, especially given the team's current offensive woes (2.44 goals per game, good for 25th in the league). He's worth a flyer in deeper fantasy formats, as long as you're not giving up a more established scoring option to get him.

Preds Give Beck Good Look Tuesday

News: Taylor Beck skated 14:49 in his NHL debut Tuesday, going scoreless with two shots on goal in a loss to the Jackets.
Analysis: The Preds certainly gave their 2009 third-round pick an extended look, and he's earned it after putting up a team-leading 41 points in 50 games for AHL Milwaukee.
