Jake Bean (born June 9, 1998) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect to the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL). Bean was drafted in the first round, 13th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft by the Hurricanes.[1]

Playing career[edit]

While playing for Edge School during the 2013–14 season, Bean was awarded the Canadian Sport School Hockey League’s Elite 15 Top Defenceman award.[2]

Bean went undrafted in the WHL Bantam draft, and was able to sign with his hometown Calgary Hitmen. Bean impressed in his rookie season with the Hitmen, posting 39 points in 51 games. He also broke the Hitmen rookie record for most points in a single season by a rookie defenceman.[3] The next season, Bean recorded a career high in goals and assists to get him drafted 13th overall by the Carolina Hurricanes.

On July 9, 2016, Bean was signed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.[4] At the conclusion of the 2016–17 season with the Hitmen, Bean was re-assigned to join and train with the Hurricanes AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.[5] However, he did not play a game for them and returned to the Hitmen for the following season.

During the 2017–18 season, Bean was named an alternate captain for the Hitmen, along with Beck Malenstyn.[6] On January 6, 2018, Bean was traded to the Tri-City Americans.[7]
