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.

Preds Recall Beck

News: The Predators have recalled Taylor Beck from AHL Milwaukee, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck, who currently leads Milwaukee with 41 points in 50 games this season, will give the Preds some added forward depth, as well as a potential spark on offense, with Paul Gaustad having landed on IR.

Preds' Prospect Beck Turning Heads In AHL

News: Taylor Beck currently leads the Milwaukee Admirals with 37 points (10G, 27A) in 42 games, putting him on pace for a 70+ point season. Last year, his first full season in the AHL, he scored 40 points (16G, 24A) in 74 games.
Analysis: Taylor Beck has slowly been adjusting to life in the AHL after putting up a combined 188 points during his last two seasons in the OHL. The knock against him has always been his skating, but the Preds like his nose for the net and his ability to battle for pucks in the corners and in front of the crease. Those of you in keeper leagues take note - it's just a matter of time before Beck lands in the NHL, and it shouldn't take him long to start having an impact once he arrives.

Predators' Beck Returns From Concussion

News: Taylor Beck (concussion) has returned to the AHL Milwaukee Admirals after suffering a gruesome collision with the boards Nov. 16, the Nashville Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The collision required immediately medical attention when it occurred, as Taylor Beck was carted out on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. The head injury evidently wasn't as bad as it looked, as Beck was back with the Admirals in three weeks. He'll look to continue what was an excellent campaign prior to the injury, as he scored 12 points in 13 games.

Predators' Beck On The Mend

News: Taylor Beck appears to be progressing in his recovery from a nasty collision sustained two weeks ago, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: "I guess he's getting closer," said Dean Evason, Taylor Beck's coach at AHL Milwaukee. "He hasn't been on the ice yet; I don't know what the status is. He's riding the bike and working out. We expect him to be at practice at some point this week." If Beck is able to practice without further complications, it seems reasonable that he'd be able to return to game action next week.

Predators' Hall Hospitalized After Hard Hit

News: Taylor Beck was unconscious on the ice for "a couple of minutes" after taking a hard hit in an AHL game Friday night, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Taylor Beck was immobilized and transported to a hospital, but the good news is that he was able to talk and move his extremities once he regained consciousness. The extent of the injury is still unclear, although we have to imagine it will keep him out for a few weeks at the very least.

Preds Send Beck To Minors

News: Taylor Beck was sent to AHL Milwaukee on Friday, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Despite his very impressive showing at training camp, the team obviously feels Taylor Beck needs a little more seasoning in the minors. Don't forget about him, however - he could wind up being a callup later in the season if the Preds run into injury trouble.

Preds' Beck Shines During Preseason Rookie Game

News: Taylor Beck scored a goal and three assists as the Preds' rookie squad coasted to a 7-3 exhibition win against Tampa Bay on Monday night, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: Playing on a line with fellow prospect Craig Smith (four goals, one assist), Taylor Beck displayed the skills that allowed him to score 90+ points in each of the past two seasons for the OHL's Guelph Storm. In all likelihood, Beck will open the season with AHL Milwaukee, but the Preds may not be able to keep him there for long, given their need for more firepower up front. Beck will be a fantasy goldmine someday - it's just a matter of when. Keep a close eye on his progress.

Preds' Prospect Beck Named OHL Player Of The Week

News: Beck was named the OHL Player of the Week for the week ending February 27. Beck, playing for the Guelph Storm, led the league with 13 points (4G, 9A) in four games.
Analysis: Beck, a 19-year-old from Niagara Falls, Ontario, is playing in his fourth OHL season with the Storm. A third-round pick of the Nashville Predators in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Beck is currently sixth in OHL scoring with 85 points in 55 games. Beck will likely need at least a year of seasoning at the AHL level, but this kid is going to look awfully good in a Preds uniform someday. Those of you in keeper leagues, take note.

Predators' Prospect Beck Reassigned to OHL

News: Beck has been reassigned to his junior team, the OHL Guelph Storm, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: Despite an impressive display in training camp that saw him score four points during a two-game rookie exhibition, the Preds obviously feel that Beck is not NHL-ready quite yet. It won't be long before he graduates to the AHL where he will need to spend some time getting used to the pro game, but the NHL is not far off for this talented youngster.

Nashville Rookie Beck Turning Heads in Camp

News: Beck scored four points during a two-game exhibition series with the Florida Panthers rookie squad on Wednesday and Thursday, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: It looks like the 19-year old Beck is not wasting any time showing off the form that saw him score 93 points (39G, 54A) in 61 games last year for the OHL Guelph Storm. At the moment, it's still more likely Beck will start the season back in the minors. Having said that, the Preds could really use another scorer, so if Beck continues his strong camp, there is the outside chance he could jump straight to the NHL from major junior, much like Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly did last season with Colorado. Keep tabs on this promising youngster.
