NHL Central Scouting’s Blair MacDonald
Strengths: "Kyle Beach is one of the top forwards in this year’s draft and is probably the most competitive – from the blue line in there is no one that competes like him. He’s feisty, he’s got a reputation for being physical and agitating a little bit, but he definitely ranks in there as a power forward and is the power forward in this year’s draft. He has good scoring skills and a very accurate shot, and from the blue line in, once he gets the puck, he almost owns it."

Areas to improve: "The team he is playing on is very defensive minded and he has to learn to skate and read transition a little better in his position and needs to learn to focus a little better on the ice to make it to the next level."

Everett head coach John Becanic
"Kyle is a really unique player, probably the most unique player in the draft this year in the fact that he plays a difficult game and is a difficult player to play against. He’s physical, he’s strong, he has skill, he has every dimension needed to be a power forward in the National Hockey League."
