2010-11: Beau Starrett saw limited action and had no points as a freshman at Catholic Memorial HS in Massachusetts. His older brother Shane Starrett was a goalie for the Knights and Beau became the fourth Starrett brother to play for Catholic Memorial.

2011-12: Starrett played for the South Shore Dynamos U16 team in the Massachusetts Midget Select League and skated for Catholic Memorial as a sophomore. In 12 games for the Dynamos he scored 5 goals with 4 assists and 6 penalty minutes.

2012-13: Starrett played for the South Shore Kings — skating in 18 games for the club’s Empire Junior League team and playing for the U18 squad — and skated for Catholic Memorial as a junior. He scored 11 goals with 11 assists and 20 penalty minutes in Empire league play and scored 9 goals with 8 assists for Catholic Memorial.

2013-14: Starrett skipped his senior year of high school hockey at Catholic Memorial to play junior hockey for the South Shore Kings in the first-year US Premier Hockey League. In November he committed to playing college hockey at Cornell in 2014-15. Starrett scored 11 goals with 36 assists and 94 penalty minutes in 48 regular season games and had 1 goal with 2 penalty minutes in five playoff games. He was selected to play in the USPHL Premier Division all-star game along with teammates Nolan Vesey and Joe Lappin. Starrett was ranked 79th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings and was selected by Chicago in the third round (88th overall) of the 2014 NHL Draft.


Beau Starrett will play one more year of junior hockey with the South Shore Kings in Massachusetts before heading to Cornell to begin his college career in 2015-16. His combination of size and skill is rare but he is still fairly early in the development process.

The salary cap is projected to rise only to around $73 million for the 2015-16 season, which means fans should expect to see somebody make their way out of Chicago.
