This hulking rearguard spent his first pro season with the AHL's Nova Scotia Oilers in 1985-86, then dressed for one playoff game in Edmonton.  The next year he established himself as a solid physical presence on the Oilers' blueline where he remained for over five years.  During this time Beukeboom was a part of Stanley Cup triumphs in 1987, 1988, and 1990.
Beukeboom was traded to the New York Rangers early in the 1991-92 season in exchange for fellow defenceman David Shaw.  The rugged blueliner helped his new club finish at the top of the NHL standings that year.  Two years later he was a part of history as the Rangers finished at the top of the NHL standings again then won the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1940.  Beukeboon remained in New York until 1998-99 when he was forced to retire after suffering a severe concussion.
