Back in 2007, Jay Beagle got to hold up the Kelly Cup. In 2009, the former Steelhead lifted the Calder Cup. Could a Stanley Cup be in his future? The 23-year-old forward skated in all five games of the AHL?s Calder Cup championship series, a series that his Hershey Bears won over the Manitoba Moose, four games to one. He finished the AHL playoffs with a goal and three assists in 19 games. Two years ago, as a rookie, he was part of Idaho?s five-game Kelly Cup championship victory over the Dayton Bombers. A step to the National Hockey League seems next. Beagle made his NHL debut for the Washington Capitals in 2009, skating in seven games?four during the Stanley Cup playoffs for the Caps. With a roster that includes Alexander Ovechin, Niklas Backstrom, and Alexander Semin, he could find himself competing for hockey?s highest prize as soon as next season if he sticks with the Capitals. If that happens, Beagle would be the first player to have his name engraved on the Kelly Cup, Calder Cup, and Stanley Cup. The Calgary native played 26 total games with Idaho in 2007, eight in the regular season and 18 in the Kelly Cup playoffs. All told, he netted 3 goals and handed out 18 assists in a Steelhead sweater. Former Steelhead Greg Rallo appeared in three games of the Calder Cup finals for Manitoba, but did not register a point in the series.
