Beaupre's got a ways to go to reach his ceiling. He's a good, not great, skater, but he's a very smart player. Good, but not great, first pass out of the zone. I see room for improvement there, especially on the boards. He'll have to bulk up this offseason and add some strength. A lot of weight training and some plyometrics work to improve his lateral agility. But, he's a heady player, which is something you can't teach.
Good to hear! I have been high on him for a while now. Playing this year in the pro ranks is probably going to do wonders for his overall game. Hopefully in a few years he will be ready to be the shutdown guy on the bottom pairing.
