Beau Akey is an elite player on the back end. Beau is a very offensive minded defender that enjoys joining the rush. It's hard for teams to handle situations where there is basically a fourth forward on the ice that can join the rush effectively and with a player like Akey, and you’re not likely to catch him once he gets going. Beau is an excellent skater with high-quality offensive instincts. Beau has a high hockey sense and strong shot, which allow him to be creative when in the offensive zone so that he can either score goals or make successful plays. Beau is very strong offensively, but could become stronger in the defensive zone. Akey is working to improve on his defensive zone play so that he can become a dangerous two-way player. Beau is working hard to keep his head up and always be looking for opportunities when he has the puck. As Akey continues to get stronger, he will become an even greater threat to his opponents, allowing him to grow into a player that can compete at the next level.
