The Oilers assigned Beck to AHL Bakersfield on Saturday. Zack Kassian (undisclosed) is expected to return to Edmonton's lineup Sunday against the Rangers, so the Oilers are no longer in need of Beck's services up front. The 25-year-old winger only logged 8:04 of ice time in the one game he drew into during his stay with the big club, and will likely spend the majority of the 2016-17 campaign in the minors.
Beck was recalled by the Oilers on Sunday. The 25-year-old winger has notched 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in eight AHL contests this season and will look to build off the effort in what could be his first NHL action of the season. Given the number of injuries it required for him to rejoin the club, it's possible his stay with the team won't last beyond the next player's return from injury.
Beck was placed on waivers Saturday. Beck inked a one-year deal with the Oilers in July, but obviously the team is ready to part ways with the 25-year-old. Over the last four seasons, Beck has made a total of 25 NHL appearances.
Beck has been signed to a one-year contact with the Oilers. The 25-year-old winger has played with both the Nashville Predators and the New York Islanders. He will bring his 23 career NHL points and 87 career games of experience to the Oilers.
Beck was traded to Colorado on Monday in exchange for Marc-Andre Cliche, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Beck is a sizable winger who's only played in two NHL games this season. He did, however, pitch in 16 goals and 17 assists along with a plus-11 rating for AHL Bridgeport, a minor-league affiliate of the Islanders. There was no shortage of depth players getting new sweaters as part of the NHL trade deadline Monday, with Beck included in that mix.
