    Islanders' Taylor Beck: Assigned to AHL Bridgeport

    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.

    Islanders' Taylor Beck: Recalled from AHL Bridgeport

    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.

  • Beck Shipped To Isles In Six-Player Deal

    News: Taylor Beck was one of five players the Islanders acquired from the Maple Leafs on Thursday in exchange for forward Michael Grabner, Stephen Whyno of The Canadian Press reports.
    Analysis: Of the five players the Islanders received back in the deal, Taylor Beck looks like the only candidate to see time at the NHL level this season. Beck offered some useful contributions (eight goals, 16 points in 64 games) in a bottom-six role with the Predators in 2014-15, but he could have difficulty seeing that many appearances again given that the Islanders ice arguably the league's best fourth line. Instead, Beck could spend most of his time serving as an extra forward or an injury replacement.
  • Beck Inks One-Year Deal With Toronto

    News: Taylor Beck signed a one-year, $875,000 contract with the Maple Leafs on Monday.
    Analysis: Taylor Beck played in 62 games with the Predators in 2014-15, notching eight goals and eight assists for a total of 16 points over that span. The 24-year-old will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the Maple Leafs at the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
  • Preds' Beck Traded To Toronto

    News: Taylor Beck was traded to the Maple Leafs in exchange for Jamie Devane.
    Analysis: While a trade of Devane for Taylor Beck, who has decent upside, seems lopsided, it makes more sense when you consider Beck had elected for arbitration. Beck should be able to get work in Toronto's rotation and might work up from just being a decent scorer in deep leagues.
  • Preds' Beck Sinks Sabres With GWG

    News: Taylor Beck netted a game-winning power-play goal Saturday against Buffalo.
    Analysis: It was the second goal in three games for Taylor Beck, who now has seven goals and 14 points in 53 games on the season. He saw just 12:14 of ice time Saturday, but he's an emerging depth scorer who can be of use in some very deep leagues.
  • Preds' Beck Dazzles After Rejoining Lineup

    News: Taylor Beck registered an assist - just his 11th point of the season - in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.
    Analysis: After sitting out four of the previous five games as a healthy scratch, Taylor Beck made his presence felt right away with a dazzling, no-look, behind-the-back pass from his knees to set up Matt Cullen for the Preds' only goal of the night. The play was a thing of beauty, to be sure, however Beck will need to start putting points up on the board with a little more regularity before we can start recommending him. This was a good start, though.
  • Preds' Beck Scratched

    News: Taylor Beck has been a healthy scratch for three straight games, and four of the past five.
    Analysis: With just two points in his previous 16 games, Taylor Beck has found himself squarely in coach Peter Laviolette's doghouse. He should not be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.
  • Preds' Beck Assists In Win Over Pens

    News: Playing in just his second game back following a three-game absence due to illness, Taylor Beck registered an assist in Sunday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh.
    Analysis: Taylor Beck now has nine points in 34 games this season, playing primarily on the Preds' fourth line with Paul Gaustad and Eric Nystrom. Despite his bottom-six role on the team, he does appear to have cemented himself a role in the Preds' lineup for the time being, so feel free to utilize him for fantasy purposes if you need him.
  • Preds' Beck Activated From IR

    News: Taylor Beck (illness) has been activated from injured reserve, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
    Analysis: Taylor Beck and Matt Cullen (upper body) have both been removed from injured reserve, heading into Saturday's game against the Wild. James Neal (lower body) remains on injured reserve, but he returned to practice Friday and has not been ruled out for Saturday.
