Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 3 @ Erie Otters 5
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 44 GP, 1-7-8, -11, 54 PIM

After spotting the Otters a 4-0 lead, the Greyhounds mounted a furious comeback to make it 4-3, then gave up an empty netter. Beukeboom left the game early with a possible concussion after taking an elbow to the head. The Soo captain missed several games earlier this season with a concussion. A St. Pete Times report states Brock had one before being drafted, too. Brock’s father, former NHLer Jeff Beukeboom, had his career cut short by post concussion syndrome caused by multiple head injuries throughout his NHL career – the worst of which was a sucker punch from the Kings Matt Johnson.

D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 42 GP, 1-7-8, -11, 54 PIM

It’s hard to believe Beukeboom was 7-19-26 last year. If he finishes strong, it will go a long way to build momentum for next year when a decision will be made on his professional future. He’s got plenty of time and plenty of upside.
