Chicago Wolves head coach Ryan Warsofsky described goaltender Beck Warm as one of the team’s most pleasant surprises of the 2021 season.
Signed by the Wolves to an AHL contract, Warm played well from the start, earned a two-way contract with the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes midway through the year and helped the Wolves win the Central Division for the fourth time in five years.
Warm finished the season with an 8-4-1 record and 2.74 goals-against average and earned the goaltender spot on the AHL’s all-Central Division team.
The 22-year-old will head to North Carolina soon to prepare for the Prospect Showcase from Sept. 8-21 in Florida, so we thought we’d get the scoop on his offseason.
Q: Outside of hockey, what have you been up to this summer?
A: I’ve been in Kelowna, British Columbia, so I’ve been on the lake a lot and also been golfing a lot. Other than that, I’ve been spending time with family and friends!
Q: Do you have a top moment of the summer so far?
A: My oldest brother’s wedding!
Q: Switching gears to hockey, where have you been training and what have you been working on?
A: I’m skating at Prospera Place in Kelowna. I’m with Justin Schultz, James Reimer and Mike Smith every day! I’ve mostly been working on strength and flexibility.
Q: Are you doing anything differently this offseason — either physically or mentally — knowing that we have a full 76-game slate season?
A: No, I’m keeping my training consistent from the last few years. Knowing I’ve had success doing the things that I’ve been doing, I’m trusting that and staying consistent!
