CH reiterates that Owen Beck will be a regular in its lineup

From the moment he was selected by the Canadiens in the penultimate draft, Owen Beck quickly established himself as a very promising prospect. He wasn’t the most talented player in the draft, but he’s good in every aspect of his game, and the youngster could very quickly prove his worth.

It will be remembered that in 2022-2023, due to injuries, he played one game with the big club.

In 60 junior games, he accumulated 66 points.

We know that Montreal holds hope in the highest esteem. Not long ago, Francis Bouillon stated that his protégé would soon become an NHL-caliber player. Now, the CH has reiterated this statement, this time through the mouth of Rob Ramage, Director of Player Development.

Ramage, who has seen Beck many times this season, had nothing but good things to say about the 33rd pick in the 2022 draft. He listed every possible quality.

Very intelligent, reliable, consistent. His coaches love him. He’s a coach’s dream. He’s a leader. Very, very serious, conscientious. This guy will play. – Rob Ramage

In short, Beck isn’t even in the NHL and he’s already seen as a complete player. And players like that are invaluable in the NHL. Talk about the Bruins with Patrice Bergeron and the Kings with Anze Kopitar.

Even if the youngster didn’t have a great series – he collected 16 points in 22 games, and was invisible in some games – he still has enormous potential, and the Habs know it. The youngster had a very eventful 2022-2023: Memorial Cup, NHL draft, training camps, World Junior Championship…

This season, with more rest, he might be able to play more games with the Habs (if injuries continue to ravage the team). If not, he’ll be an important player on his junior team.
