"I knew it was a big year for me," Beaulieu said. "I just wanted to go in full steam and not let opportunities pass me. The biggest thing is that now I feel that I got the ball rolling, it's just important to keep it going. Not to get comfortable and not to sit back." He has averaged 20:10 of ice time per game and he has collected 17 points in just 42 contests. The 24-year-old defender picked a fine time to have his best NHL season. Jan 23 - 10:37 AM

Nathan Beaulieu contributed two assists Wednesday in a 7-4 win against Winnipeg.

He has stepped up lately with Andrei Markov out of the lineup. Beaulieu has accounted for one goal and seven helpers in the last seven games. He also has five power-play points during that span. Beaulieu is worth adding at this time if you are looking for help on the back end.

Nathan Beaulieu has left Tuesday's game against the Senators after receiving a puck to the throat area.

He has been ruled out for the remainder of the game. If he can't play on Thursday, expect Greg Pateryn to make his return to the lineup. In the event Beaulieu misses an extended stretch, the Habs will have to recall another defenseman.

Nathan Bealieu is struggling on the Canadiens' third defenseman pairing.

He was demoted there some time ago and his game has not picked up one bit. In fact, it looks as if Montreal coach Michel Therrien has lost all confidence in Beaulieu playing him only 14:45 against Toronto. We would not be surprised if there were sme healthy scratches in Beaulieu's future.

Nathan Beaulieu was dropped to the third pairing on Monday night against Philadelphia.

Alexei Emelin took his spot alongside Shea Weber. "He's a young defenceman trying to establish himself in the NHL," coach Michel Therrien said of Beaulieu. "He's got to make sure that he's doing percentage plays and solid one-on-one. But you're looking, year after year he's getting better."

Nathan Beaulieu is looking to contribute more offensively this season.

"I know what I'm capable of doing," he said. "They're going to give me the opportunity and I have to seize it. I have a lot to prove. Even though it's my third year in the league, every year you're trying to make the team and move up in the lineup." Beaulieu feels there's an opening to be more offensive this year after P.K. Subban was traded and he is vying for a top-four role on the Canadiens. He could also get power-play time on the second unit.

Nathan Beaulieu scored a goal and three assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Beaulieu has always been a solid puck mover, but it hasn't translated into points at the NHL level. That could change this year as Beaulieu enters his third full season in the NHL. If he continues playing as well as he played tonight, there's a chance that head coach Michel Therrien could opt to play him on a pairing with veteran Shea Weber (that wouldn't hurt his fantasy stock).

Nathan Beaulieu will miss the rest of his season due to a broken thumb.

During his second full season with Montreal, Beaulieu had a nice campaign through 63 games. He posted a career high of 17 assists and 19 points along with 55 PIMs, 58 hits, and 88 blocks which were all new high water marks as well. The 23-year-old will be an RFA come July.
