-TSN talked to Kyle Beach in their NHL Rookie Challenge:
TSN: Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga? Who would you rather listen to and why?
Beach: Probably Justin Bieber because he's cute.
TSN: If you were a superhero what kind of super power would you want and why?
Beach: X-ray vision for undisclosed reasons.

-More from Beach:
"I'm pretty much prepared to play any role. There's obviously lots of great players they've gotten rid of, which is unfortunate, but they brought a lot of great players in as well. I think we're going to see this year how good their prospects are and how well they've brought them up in Rockford. It's going to be a great challenge, but I will be disappointed at the end of the day if I'm not on this roster."
