Habs Prospect Suspended from OHL Final after Blatant Slewfoot

Published May 20, 2023 at 5:16 PM
If the Peterborough Petes are going to win the Ontario Hockey League's Championship Final, they are going to have to do it without one of their best players. Owen Beck, an early second round pick (33rd overall) of the Montreal Canadiens, has been suspended for the remainder of the series after an obvious slewfoot on Jackson Edward of the London Knights. He was given a match penalty at the time, which triggers an automatic review by the league.

The official ruling from the OHL was two games. With the Petes leading the series 3-2, Beck is done for this season.

Not the First Time This Series

Beck was given a match penalty earlier in this same series after what was ruled an illegal check to the head on Denver Barkey. That review decided against any suspension.

Beck had 8 goals and 8 assists in 22 post season games this season.
