IHM Welcomes Canadian Defenseman Brett Beauvais

by Chris White

International Hockey Management is proud to announce the signing of Canadian defenseman, Brett Beauvais, of the Knoxville Ice Bears in the SPHL. The left shot was born October 24, 1994. The Summerside, Prince Edward Island native stands 5'11 and weighs 185 pounds. The 26 year-old is an alumus of Robert Morris University in NCAA Division I.

Beauvais has spent the last three seasons at the professional level. In total, he has played 65 games in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) and 28 in the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL). This past season, with the contraction of 11 fewer teams in the ECHL, Beauvais ended up playing in Knoxville after returning from an elbow injury that occurred in the first game of his ECHL season. Beauvais recorded 9 Points in 26 Games Played for the Ice Bears, who were eliminated in the Semi-Finals by Pensacola. In his ECHL career, he has featured for the Kansas City Mavericks, Greenville Swamp Rabbits, Adirondack Thunder, and Rapid City Rush.

Beauvais began his collegiate years after a storied junior hockey career. In two seasons with the Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings of the North American Hockey League (2011-2013), Beauvais recorded 59 Points, including two playoff runs. Then, as 19 year-old, he went on to lead the entire British Columbia Junior Hockey League in Defenseman Scoring for the Penticton Vees, with 58 Points in 57 Games Played. That same year, he would add 8 Points in 11 Playoff Games, in addition to earning BCHL Top Defenseman and BCHL First Team All-Star honors. This production led to a scholarship at Bemidji State University, in Minnesota. After three seasons and 20 Points registered, Beauvais transferred to Robert Morris University, where he obtained his Master's Degree.

International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented, 

Brett is a solid two-way defenseman that has a great sense of when and how to jump into the play. He does all of the little things necessary to take care of the defensive end, and isn't afraid to put his body on the line. He was heavily counted-on this past season, and he still has some untapped offensive potential to show at the professional level. We are looking forward to helping Brett take the next step in his career.
