Both him and even moreso Greg Neeld were pursued by NHL teams when younger, the other problem with Beauregard was his size... especially for AHL teams in the mid 90's when that league was even rougher, he apparently played a few games in the AHL as a 19/20 year old and looked more than good enough.
