• Beck finished fourth on the Guelph Storm with 58 points (22-36-58) in 67 games nearly tripling his rookie scoring output of 21 points (7-14-21)

• He was selected to participate in the 2009 Top Prospects game where he scored one goal for Team Orr.

• Beck, comes by his athletic ability honestly – his father, Stan, played minor league baseball for the Boston Red Sox and his uncle, Jim Douglas, played on Canada’s soccer team at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal.

• He pattern’s his game after Joe Thornton - “he is a good playmaker, scorer, and dominates down low” and he wears the number 19 because Steve Yzerman was his childhood hockey idol.

• If he could have dinner with any three people they would be Steve Yzerman, Mario Lemieux and his Grandpa – “my hero”.

• If he could play in any band it would be Nickelback and his dream car would be a fully loaded Land Rover.
