This will be a very telling year for him.
He did well when he played last year, but got a shoulder injury that caused him to sit out most of the season.
During that time, he coached a local peewee team (to a 10-1-1 record) and did some IceHogs broadcasting. It sounds like he did a lot of maturing off the ice, and really his maturity has always been his biggest question mark.
If he's got his head screwed on right, he's definitely got all of the tools to succeed at the pro level. Now it's just a matter of him proving it over an entire season.
I've got a theory that Bowman is waiting to see how Beach does this season before he decides whether or not to offer him another contract or trade him as part of a package at the deadline (assuming there will be an NHL season).
