Those are probably from his draft year. The AHL has him at 6'3", 210 lbs.

I don't know a lot about Luke Adam, but Beach has been trending upwards lately. His last season was derailed by injury, and he did a lot of maturing in the off-time. He also made AHL Player of the Week last week despite playing mostly on the 4th line. I know that's not a huge accomplishment, but he's been such a hotly-debated prospect among Hawks fans that it stirred up a number of people.

I think the Hawks are still busy trying to measure what they have in Beach before they trade him. That said, I don't think they want to measure much longer, so by February or June, this deal might be more feasible.
