Beauregard was born in Saint-Damase, Quebec, approximately 60 kilometres outside of Montreal. Prior to his Major Junior career, he played two AAA seasons at nearby Collège Antoine-Girouard where he tallied 40 goals and 53 assists for 93 points in 83 games. The small centre would go on to be selected 102nd overall in the 6th round of the 2012 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) Entry Draft by the Val-d’Or Foreurs.

He played nearly three full healthy seasons with the Foreurs, each one better than the last. His rookie season would be a 41 point in 68 game campaign before accumulating 180 points over the next two seasons. In his QMJHL career, Beauregard recorded 69 goals and 154 assists for 223 points in 207 career games.

Going undrafted, Beauregard made his ECHL debut with the Indy Fuel where he played 21 games. He would go back home not long later to continue his career in Montreal with the Concordia University Stingers men’s hockey program.

After putting up 17 points in 11 games in his freshman year, Beauregard’s offensive production exploded in the 2017-18 season as he recorded 19 points and 41 assists for 60 points in 28 games for the Stingers.

Anthony’s 60 points was more than good enough to lead the nation as he sat 14-points clear of Acadia University’s Stephen Harper who netted 46 points. Beauregard led the nation in points and assists, finishing second in goals and shorthanded goals all while placing 52nd in games played.

Montreal’s Concordia finished third in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) East Division with an 18-7-3 record. In the conference playoffs, they fell to crosstown rivals McGill University in a best-of-three series, but defeated York University for the bronze medal and a spot in the National Championships. Concordia lost to eventual-national bronze medalists University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds 8-1 in the quarterfinals.

The centre forward was a special teams specialist for the Stingers this season, recording four powerplay goals and three shorthanded goals; with his other 12 goals coming at even strength.

Beauregard becomes the second player in the history of the Concordia University men’s hockey program to win the Sullivan Award.
