Beck would get his first taste of NHL action during the lockout shortened 2012-13 season. He made his NHL debut for the Predators on March 19, 2013, in a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. He would go on to appear in 16 games for the Nashville during the shortened season, scoring three times and adding four assists.

He was traded to the New York Islanders on September 17 along with Carter Verhaeghe, Christopher Gibson, Tom Nilsson and Matthew Finn in exchange for Michael Grabner.

Beck would spend the 2015-16 season predominantly with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League. In 46 games for the club he recorded 16 goals and added 17 assists. On February 29, 2016 Beck was traded to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Marc-Andre Cliche and would join the club's AHL affiliate in San Antonio.

In the summer of 2016, Beck signed with the Edmonton Oilers and joined the club's AHL affiliate the following season. His stint in the Oilers' organization would be short-lived however as he was traded to the New York Rangers in the days leading up to the NHL trade deadline.
