Bean and Malenstyn make NHL CSS ‘Players to Watch’ list

 

The Calgary Hitmen Hockey Club is pleased to announce defenceman Jake Bean and forward Beck Malenstyn have both made the National Hockey League’s players to watch list for September in advance of the 2016 NHL Draft.

The list is compiled by NHL Central Scouting Service and groups all the prospects by league giving each player an individual rating.

Bean, one of 40 players from the Western Hockey League on the list, received a “B” ranking which indicates a 2nd/3rd round candidate.

Malenstyn received a “C” ranking, indicating a 4th/5th/6th round candidate.

Both players were part of Team Canada’s U18 gold medal winning squad at the 2015 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup in August.
