Kyle Beach

Is this the year he has to make the jump to the big club. He has discipline and injury problems the last couple of years. Some people were complaining about the size of the Hawks forward prospects. Beach obviously does not have an issue with build.

When Buff was traded MANY on this site had him penciled in to replace him. Reminds me of the Saad line ups posted every other day. If he's not the guy should he be shopped. There has to be some value there. He probably would of been up in lieu of Hayes without the injury last year.

Does anyone think Beach, even if he gets called up this year, has a chance to break even 3rd line duty with our forward depth?

I haven't heard much about his progression, but unless he has the hands and can cause some kinda havoc in front of the goalie with one of our top 2 lines, I just can't see him fitting at the moment.

Any enlightenment would be great of course.

Another thing, I can't find any stats for the guy last year. I know he was injured but he did play some games.

Having both Beach and Jayes at this moment feels a little redundant

I guess give him a chance. I really don't like him as a player...but it's not as though i wish him ill or anything like that. if he proves me wrong, i'll be happy to say 'mea culpa'. but, yeah...don't like him at all.

No, he doesn't have to make the Hawks this year.

But if he doesn't light it up in Rockford, expect him to be gone at the deadline.

Beach showed enough in his limited time in Rockford this year to convince me that not only will he be a major player for the Icehogs next year, but he'll probably earn several call ups throughout the year and eventually stick going into the playoffs a la Andrew Shaw.

He should at the very least make his NHL debut at some point next year. He's competing with Hayes and to a lesser extent Ben Smith for a spot moving forward. Work hard, bring a physical presence, and hopefully score a few goals and he'll stay.

What the Hawks need from him is to be a big, strong, physical, mean, tough, but smartly tough forward who will take the body, bang along the boards, and get in a goalies face and make his life miserable. Whether he scores is irrelevant as the Hawks don't need scoring, not saying he can get by with 7 goals if he plays a full season but 13-15 is fine with me if he plays his game.

Been annoyed with this guy for years. Whether it's injuries, character, or lack of heart in his own end, he's been an awful pick for us so far. Yes, some prospects take even five years to develop, but I believe he should be further along due to where he was picked. Beach hasn't given me much hope. He's a guy I think of as adding to sweeten a deal or maybe playing on our fourth line someday.

At this point given some of the amazing players taken after him (Myers, Karlsson, Gardiner, Sbisa, Del Zotto, Eberle, Ennis, Carlson) it's a lost cause hoping that turns out to not be a bad pick. At this point I'm just hoping Beach can salvage enough to be a decent third liner or be part of a good trade.

I remember venting my feelings about Beach at prospect camp last summer to my cousin. Some people that were major IceHogs fans were eavesdropping and laughing after each point I made. I think it's hilarious that they laughed at me after another year was wasted. It's time to move on. The Hawks' bottom-six really is fine. It's not like we're lacking any respectable bottom-six talent currently on our roster or elsewhere in the system.

The guy was injured most of last season.

That's why I referred to it as a wasted year.

if the Hawks bottom 6 was fine, Bolland wouldn't have new line mates every night.

He played this way in junior hockey to a tee. Ripped off a 50+ goal year and was a total pain in the ass to play against.

Who can forget when he scored the empty net goal where he did hockey's version of a Deion sanders high stepping it to the net which then led to a bench clearing brawl.

If he can put it all altogether at the NHL level he'd be driving other teams crazy.

FWIW, Before Teravainen was drafted, he had probably had the best hands out of all our prospects.

I know he was off to a good start last year, but Im not going to hold my breath for this guy. I hope he turns out to be a gritty 2nd liner with a scoring touch and a mean streak... but at this point I'll be happy if he fits anywhere on the roster.

As was noted he missed 3/4 of last season.. My issue with him is that he should look to fight less. He isn't that good at it and that is how he injured his shoulder.

At the time he was a good pick and what the Hawks needed ; big, skilled, and with good hands. Those qualities still exist, and the Hawks still need them. Part of the reason he dropped down in his draft year was that he played with a sports hernia for the 2nd half of the season and his production was down.

He coached a kids team in Rockford after the injury, and all reports I have heard is that he doesn't have any negative attitude at all. He certainly isn't anything like the crazy akim aliu...

I hope he works his arse off this summer and takes a job... it's there if he wants it bad enough..

I still like Beach as a prospect. I think he plays a big role in Rockford this year and gets around 20 games with the club in 3rd line duties.

People on this site sometimes drive me crazy. I understand he was taken high but it was understood at the time he would be a project pick, now is about the time he's supposed to be putting it together but people already believe his time here is done.

Let him develop, don't trade him, he has much greater value to us than anybody else (maybe Tallon).

He'll get his shot this year. Beach will be a good 3rd liner for us going forward. I think Bickell gets traded during the year when Beach has a good start in Rockford. Bickell gets traded and Beach gets his spot

We could use both players if they play like they're capable. I wouldn't be in any hurry to trade either.

But Tallon was such a good GM..no way these players will be better than Beach.

So glad he's not our GM anymore.
