2022 NHL Entry Draft

Film Room: Owen Beck is the OHL’s draft-eligible model of consistency

Save for Shane Wright, there hasn't been a more consistent 2022 draft-eligible forward from the OHL this season than Owen Beck.

Viewings of most OHL 2004-born players this season typically yielded more questions than answers, skepticism over their long-term projections, and wondering how much not playing last season hurt their development. 

But there has never been any confusion surrounding Owen Beck's game. 

We at Elite Prospects are higher on Beck than most public spheres, but for good reason. It starts with understanding who Beck is as a hockey player. He's not the most dynamic player in his draft class or even on his Mississauga Steelheads team, but he plays an incredibly intelligent game and he's very good at it. 

His tools are excellent, and his vision, processing and on-ice habits are a cut above. He delivers on every shift, no matter what role he's asked to play. 

Beck always puts himself in situations to succeed, so that even when the offence has dried up, he's still an impact contributor to his team.
