Playing careerEdit

Prior to playing for the Alaska Nanooks, Beck played for the Langley Chiefs of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL).[1] After completion of his college career, he signed with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL in 2014.[2] In January 2016, Beck signed with the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League (AHL).[3]

During the 2018–19 season, on November 1, 2018, Beck signed a two-year, two-way contract with Iowa's parent affiliate, the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League (NHL).[4]

As a free agent after five seasons with the Iowa Wild, Beck was left unsigned with the delayed 2020–21 North American season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On December 10, 2020, Beck agreed to a one-year contract with German second tier club, EV Landshut of the DEL2, however with concerns over his family's health with the birth of a newborn, and the commencement of a lockdown through Germany, Beck was released from his contract on December 16, 2020.[5]

On February 12, 2021, having returned to Canada, Beck was signed to a professional tryout contract with the Stockton Heat of the AHL.[6] Remaining with the Heat for the shortended 2020–21 season, Beck collected 1 goal and 6 points in 21 games.

As a free agent, Beck decided to recommit to a European career, agreeing to a one-year contract with Austrian based club, Dornbirn Bulldogs of the ICEHL, on August 25, 2021.[7]

Personal lifeEdit

Beck's father, Murray, was drafted 104th overall by the Houston Aeros in the 1974 WHA Amateur Draft. His uncle, Barry, played in the NHL from 1977 to 1990.[4]
