A native of Saint-Damase, Quebec, the 5-foot-7, 165-pound forward tallied 46 points (17g, 29a) in 48 games with the Stars. Beauregard has two years of ECHL experience, having played his rookie campaign with the Indy Fuel in 2016-17.

During his collegiate career, he had a breakout season in 2017-18, leading all USports players with 60 points (19g, 41a) in 28 games. He became the first Stinger to pass the 50-point plateau since the 1989-90 campaign and helped Concordia reach the National Championship for the first time in 34 years.
