Taylor Beck and Dillon Simpson will be scratched against the Stars on Friday night.

With just one game played between them, there isn't a whole lot to be excited about. Both players have yet to prove they can make a difference in the NHL, so we'd leave them on the wire.

The Edmonton Oilers have placed Taylor Beck on waivers.

Beck should easily pass through waivers and be sent to the Oilers farm club in Bakersfield. The 25-year-old has played in 87 NHL games with the majority coming in 2014-15 as he had eight goals and 16 points in 62 games with Nashville.
Oct 2 - 8:10 AM

The Edmonton Oilers signed Taylor Beck to a one-year contract.

Details of the agreement haven't been made public just yet. The 25-year-old played two NHL games with the Islanders before being traded to the Avalanche in February. Don't be surprised if he spends most of the 2016-17 season in the minors.

Beck has posted 16 goals and 33 points in 46 games for AHL Bridgeport. However through 85 career NHL games with Nashville and the Islanders he's accumulated just 11 goals and 23 points. Beck will be a RFA this summer after marking the cap at $875K.
Feb 29 - 3:22 PM

Taylor Beck will tag in for Steve Bernier against Montreal on Sunday.

Beck has seen just one game with the Islanders this season and played 8:56 with no shots on goal and three hits. Then again, Bernier has played 11 games and has two points with 23 hits. Neither appear to be good fantasy options, unfortunately.

Coach Capuano has decided forego lineup changes for Friday's match with Montreal.

That means that Taylor Beck, Jean-Francois Berube, and Adam Pelech will each be healthy scratches. It's nearly American Thanksgiving and the three of the have but a game's worth of ice time each this season. Clearly indicating what their potential fantasy value is.

Taylor Beck will be a healthy scratch once again on Friday against the Ducks.

Clearly Coach Capuano will not play the young forward unless he has no other choice. And with just a single game under his belt since Halloween, there doesn't seem to be any ice time coming to him soon.

Taylor Beck will return to the stands on Tuesday night against the Sharks.

Beck skated less than nine minutes just three hits during his one game of action over the weekend. Unfortunately, he doesn't appear to have much of an opportunity to create value with the Islanders.

Taylor Beck will tag in for Josh Bailey against the Bruins on Sunday.

This will be Beck's first NHL game of the season, though he did pot seven points in 10 games for AHL Bridgeport before being recalled last week. Bailey meanwhile has six points in 14 games. Neither are considered good fantasy assets.

Taylor Beck will be scratched from Tuesday's tilt with the Devils.

Beck has yet to dress for the Islanders this season, and it looks like he'll be the true emergency replacement should another player need to be removed.
Tue, Nov 3, 2015 06:49:00 PM

Taylor Beck was also scratched from Sunday's game against the Sabres.

The young forward was summoned on an emergency loan basis after John Tavares fell ill, and Steve Bernier was put into action. One presumes Bernier is in due to his seniority, because it's not as though Beck doesn't have seven points in 10 games with AHL Bridgeport this season.
