|Assets:||Is at his best when neutralizing scoring forwards. Has the size teams love for checking purposes. Willing to drop the gloves in defense of his teammates, he's also strong along the boards. Can play both center and wing.|
|Flaws:||Isn't much of a scoring threat, so he's never a good candidate to play a top-six forward role. Doesn't win a lot of fights when he decides to drop the gloves. Can be prone to injury, as a result.|
|Career Potential:||Big, steady defensive forward.|

Penalties cost Capitals in loss to Rangers | 05/07/2013 11:05 AM
NewsEven though the Capitals hung with the Rangers, their parade to the penalty box early on set them back.
ImpactThey took six minor penalties in the first 27 minutes of the game. The Rangers only capitalized on one (and scored just as one expired), but it kept the Capitals on their heels and kept their offensive players glued to the bench. "Your momentum gets killed," Jay Beagle said, "and it's tough to get going again. We need to keep our sticks down and stay off the refs." Mike Green also added: Anytime you're taking penalties, it's losing momentum and it's tough to get that flow of the game. Guys get tired and we can't have that."
Capitals adjusting well to new PK system | 05/06/2013 1:06 PM
NewsJay Beagle and his Washington teammates have had to adjust to coach Adam Oates' new penalty kill system.
ImpactThe Capitals improved their penalty kill over the course of the season. They surrendered 20 power-play goals in the last 39 games after giving up 15 in the first 11 and they killed all seven of the Rangers' man advantage situations in the playoffs after two matches. Washington has been credited with 38 blocked shots in the postseason, but Oates doesn't like his players to drop down in front of the opposition when they do it. "With a PK that's so structural, you can't afford to kind of get out of position," Beagle said. "There's also the time like [Saturday] when Fehrsie goes down and blocks that shot. That was a huge block. It's kind of a read. It's kind of like a player's read. If you see that he's going to make the shot and you have a chance to get down and block it, we obviously need to get those blocks, too. But it's a balance. You've got to keep it in the back of your mind."
Jay Beagle: Games are being called tight | 01/30/2013 9:46 PM
NewsThe Capitals have been whistled for 33 minor penalties through six games this season.
The Washington Times
ImpactIt's a big reason why they've started 1-4-1, as nine of the 22 goals they've allowed have come on the penalty kill, which is good for the league's 25th-ranked unit. Some of the Capitals believe things are getting called tighter thus far. "It's been called tighter than I've really ever been a part of, I think," center Jay Beagle said. "Just with some of the penalties called, you know you can't get away with anything right now."
