The Islanders assigned Beck to AHL Bridgeport following Wednesday's game. Beck only appeared in two games for the Islanders after being recalled in late October, so the team sent him back to Bridgeport to give him a chance to see more ice time. He tallied seven points in 10 AHL games earlier this season, so he will garner consideration next time the Islanders need to add a forward to the roster.
Beck has been recalled from AHL Bridgeport on an emergency basis. The team's superstar center John Tavares is out Saturday afternoon against the Devils due to an undisclosed injury, paving the way for Beck to be the emergency replacement. It's too early to tell how long Tavares may be out of action, but Beck has enough offensive skill to at least help the bottom two lines in the meantime.
