Owen Beck has been selected at 33rd overall in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens.
Beck is a centreman with a similar profile to Shane Wright’s, with a great projection to make the NHL, with the questions being how much offence he can provide when he gets there.
He had 51 points in 68 games with the Mississauga Steelheads this season, 21 of them goals. He does have a great understanding of the game and is good in all situations, so he can still be effective when he’s not contributing points, but the Canadiens will hope he develops that part of his game in the next few years.
We’ll have more on Beck as part of a busy day of coverage on day two of the draft.
