2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bean appeared in only two games for the Hurricanes last season, and the 2016 first-rounder will be fighting an uphill battle to make the roster out of camp. He showed some serious offensive prowess from the blue line with 13 goals, 44 points and a plus-17 rating in 70 appearances for AHL Charlotte last season, so it's worth monitoring how Bean does in preseason. He'd have some upside if he sticks with the big club, but Bean remains more of a long-term fantasy play at this stage given the numerous capable veterans currently residing on Carolina's blue line.

Bean has been included in the Hurricanes' Phase 3 training camp roster.
ANALYSIS
Bean led the AHL in blue-line scoring with 48 points in 59 games, so his inclusion on the roster shouldn't come as a surprise. Given his offensive upside, the team could opt to utilize the Calgary native in a playoff contest if another defenseman picks up an injury. In addition to Bean, the organization added forwards Steven Lorentz and Max McCormick and netminder Anton Forsberg.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
For a blueliner, the 20-year-old Bean has been an offensive standout the past four seasons in the WHL, racking up a combined 196 points in 219 games. Bean will likely require a season or two at the AHL level before he is considered NHL-ready, but don't worry – his time is coming. He remains one of the Hurricanes' top prospects and will look awfully good quarterbacking the team's power play in another season or two. Keeper-league players should take note.
Bean, selected 13th overall in the 2016 NHL Draft, is arguably the top prospect in the Hurricanes' organization. He has been a high-impact offensive contributor for the past three seasons with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL, registering a total of 148 points in 162 games. This season, the 19-year-old Bean has set his sights on bypassing the AHL and landing a roster spot with the Hurricanes straight out of training camp. However, the Canes' defense corps is already filled with young defenders such as Noah Hanifin (20), Brett Pesce (22) and Jaccob Slavin (23), so the team may decide they are better off allowing Bean at least one season of AHL conditioning before promoting him to the big club. That said, it's just a matter of when Bean becomes an everyday NHL'er – not if – so those of you in keeper formats would be wise to grab him now, while he's still available.
Bean is one of the top prospects to emerge from the WHL in recent years. His main strengths are his on-ice vision and ability to locate his teammates with precision passing in all three zones. With the Calgary Hitmen last season, he recorded 64 points in 68 games, including 24 goals. The Canes already have a number of young defensemen on the roster, including Noah Hanifin, Brett Pesce and Haydn Fleury, so they are not likely to rush Bean along before he's ready. As such, he will probably open the season with AHL Charlotte, but don't be afraid to snap him up in your keeper leagues if he's still available.
