This guys is one of my favourites from this draft class. I love the effort that Beck Malenstyn puts into every single shift that he takes. It’s unfortunate that he doesn’t necessarily have the finish that he’d need to be a higher pick but this type of player is still valuable in today’s NHL. He’s got good size, is a good skater and finishes his checks. My comparable for him is Antoine Roussel because of the way he forechecks and goes all out every single shift. With that kind of work ethic, in my view he has a solid shot to make it to the NHL as a role player.
