Bean on the cusp of an NHL breakthrough January 27, 2020
Jake Bean is one of the rising stars in the Carolina Hurricanes’ organization, and it only seems like a matter of time before he becomes a fixture on the team’s defence at the NHL level. Now in his second season with the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL, the Calgary-native has continued to improve in all aspects of his game, including his skating and defensive acumen. After an impressive campaign saw him finish second in rookie scoring by a defenseman with 44 points in 2018-19, Bean has been excellent this season, tallying 31 points in just 39 games to date.
