He played senior hockey for the Edmonton Superiors from 1925 to 1928 and then turned pro with the Vancouver Lions in 1928-29. Through a complicated procedure, he was signed by the Boston Bruins in 1930 and embarked upon a seven and a half year career with that team. In 1931-32 he missed all but one game because of a broken leg.
In the middle of the 1937-38 season he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings for Gord Pettinger and then later that same season was sent to the New York Americans for Joe Lamb. In 1938-39 he was sent down to the New Haven Eagles and retired at the end of the season.
In the NHL Beattie played in 334 games and scored 62 goals and 85 assists.
