A former Langley Chiefs scoring star has found a home in the American Hockey League.

Langley forward Colton Beck has signed a two-year, American Hockey League SPC (standard player contract) with the American Hockey League’s Iowa Wild, the team announced on its website earlier this week.

The former Langley Chiefs junior A star originally signed a PTO (professional tryout agreement) with Iowa on Nov. 26, 2015.

According to the Wild’s website, the Langley native native was one of the club’s best players down the stretch of the season.

Beck led all scorers with 12 points (5g-7a) over the last 19 games of the season.

He finished eighth in points for the Wild, including fourth best among first-year skaters.

Prior to joining Iowa, the 5’10” 190-pounder played parts of two seasons with the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads.

He scored 27 goals and totaled 72 points in 83 games for Idaho from 2014-16.
