Owen Beck is a two-way center who excels at taking time and space away from his opponents while showing the ability to be a skilled puck-carrier and offensive threat. His ability to play excellent positional hockey and anticipate the play allows him to read the opponent’s eyes and jump on the plays as they develop. After he creates turnovers he has the ability to quickly transition to offense, while he doesn’t possess elite speed he can is more than capable of creating separation for himself on offense. Offensively, he doesn’t do anything at an elite level but he can read plays well, has quality puck sills that will allow him to be a consistent contributor at the next level and has the ability to chip in and help drive the bus in the transition game. His bread an butter is his IQ and his ability to read plays, and if he ever gets his skill level to come anywhere close to his mind, he can turn into an elite player. He is the type of player that all coaches will love to have on their team, as he has the skillset to play multiple roles and in multiple situations. He has the skillset to be a contributor on the power play, and the work ethic to be a key cog of the penalty kill. He may never be an elite offensive producer, but he will be able to consistently put up respectable numbers while having great underlying impacts on a nightly basis. If there were any concerns with his game, it’s that he could already be close to his ceiling. He’s the perfect high-floor prospect. If you draft him you know you’re getting an NHL-caliber player who will be a vital member of your middle-six forward group for the next decade, but where in that range he slots will be the question, as there might not be any more upside than that range to Beck’s game.
