Kyle Beach (born on January 13, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently under contract with EC VSV in the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL).

He was originally selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round (11th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing CareerEdit

Kyle played junior hockey for the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League. After his first season in the Western Hockey League (WHL), he was named the league's Rookie of the Year. His aggressive play led to multiple concussions and a sports hernia while playing for the Everett Silvertips.

After being named the 2006–07 WHL Rookie of the Year, he was projected to be a top 5 pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, but his on-ice reputation & discipline issues made teams hesitant to draft him.

Later in his WHL career, he bounced around, spending time with the Lethbridge Hurricanes and the Spokane Chiefs.

Kyle made his professional debut with the Rockford Ice Hogs of the American Hockey League (AHL) at the end of the 2008–09 season.

Until the start of the 2013–14 season, he had spent his entire professional career with the Ice Hogs. When HV71, of the Swedish Elite League ran into injury trouble, he joined the club for three weeks, appearing in 7 games.

On December 6, 2013, Kyle was traded to the New York Rangers in exchange for Brandon Mashinter. He was assigned to the Rangers AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack following the trade.

In August of 2014, he signed a tryout contract with EC Salzburg through to the end of September.

After 9 games with Salzburg in his second season with the club, Kyle opted to terminate his contract & return to North America in signing a contract on November 25, 2015 with the Missouri Mavericks of the ECHL.

After seven scoreless games with the club, he opted to rejoin the Austrian Hockey League with Graz 99ers on December 18, 2015.

In the 2016–17 season, Kyle enjoyed his most productive season as a professional, compiling 30 goals and 45 points in 54 games with the 99ers. However, after a short playoff-run his contract with the 99ers was not renewed, resulting in his release as a free agent.

On March 17, 2017, Kyle continued his tenure in the EBEL, agreeing to a two-year contract with EC VSV as a free agent.
