Beskorowany was just traded to my hometown team, the Kingston Frontenacs so I'll be able to post a lot of updates on his progress. He'll be facing a lot of rubber again this year, that's for sure. Kingston has three capable goalies, so I'm not even sure where he will fit. I assume one of them is on the way out, and coach Doug Gilmour will play whomever is playing well at the time (like he did last season).
The Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League has announced that they have traded 19 year old goaltender, Tyler Beskorowany and a conditional draft pick in 2012 to the Kingston Frontenacs in exchange for forward Bobby Mignardi and a 4th round draft choice in 2010.
I realize that, but Mavric Parks was a highly touted goalie who did play pretty well under the circumstances, and John Cullen was a rookie who was acquired half way through the year to push Parks. Gilmour played a platoon most of the year. I'm not saying Besko won't be #1, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a 1A, 1B situation.
As for the trade, it's pretty underwhelming for Owen Sound, but it was well-known they were shopping him and probably wanted him out of the West.
Some info on the Frontenacs. This is from a list of the Top 10 players in the OHL who could be traded (Beskorowany was listed at #2). This blurb has some info on Beskorowany's new team.
10. Nathan Moon - Kingston Frontenacs
Moon is the definitely the least likely player to get traded on this list, however I would not have included him if I felt like there was no chance he was sent packing. I think a lot depends on the way the Fronts start the 2009-10 season. For maybe the first time in a while, the Fronts have some elevated expectations for next season. Many expect the Fronts to return to the playoffs thanks to solid young talent like Erik Gudbranson, Ethan Werek, and Taylor Doherty, in addition to veterans like Moon and Brian Lashoff. Not to mention the club no has a full season of "Killer" behind the bench. But as many Kingston fans can tell you, expectations only go so far. Moon has long been rumored to be in and out of favor in Kingston, despite his talent level. If the Fronts struggle yet again and are on pace to miss the playoffs, Moon could be the first guy shipped off to a contending team. However, I could also see Moon dealt as part of a package to help the team get better goaltending. For instance, a team like Sault Ste. Marie could use a talented center, while they have Cody St. Jacques and Bryce O'Hagan as bargaining chips in net.
