Observations:

 

September 2013 - After a stellar audition with the big club in 2012/2013, which saw him pot three goals and seven points in 16 games, Beck looked to have an inside track on a roster spot this upcoming season. However after the free agent signings of four NHL forwards in the offseason Nashville now has 12 forwards on one-way contracts. Consequently Beck may again be in tough for a roster spot. If Beck can find a way to gain regular ice time he may be a fantasy option in deeper leagues, however until his path to the NHL is made clearer he is a risky option.  Donesh Mazloum

 

March 2013 - The Preds are giving the potential power forward some time to find his game. He needs to be more aggressive and use his size. The goals are starting to come, which is another thing that needed work. All-in-all, he's on the right track. - Dobber

 

May, 2012 – Beck has improved his production year by year, finishing as the seventh overall scorer in the OHL in the 2010-11 season. Taylor showed very well in his first NHL and could compete for a roster spot next season. His skating could use some work but he has NHL size and plays a strong physical game. - Ryan Goddard

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

 

Beck has proven to be a competent goal-scorer at each level he has competed. Beck doesn’t possess high-end upside but will score goals on the second or third line.
