Nathan Beaulieu will probably be going down to the minors soon.

Mike Weaver got back in the lineup Thursday after a one-game absence with an upper-body injury, which made Beaulieu a healthy scratch. Montreal also acquired Bryan Allen from Anaheim on Thursday, which could result in Beaulieu heading down to the AHL.

Nathan Beaulieu is a healthy scratch in Montreal's game against St. Louis on Thursday.

With veteran Mike Weaver returning to the lineup, there was no room in Montreal's top six for Beaulieu. The young defenseman had a bad turnover in Montreal's loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, which surely didn't help his cause.
Nov 20 - 7:38 PM

Nathan Beaulieu saw limited ice time again on Sunday.

He made the most of his 6:34 of playing time by earning an assist on Tomas Plekanec's seventh goal of the year. Montreal has been dressing seven defensemen for the past few games, which hasn't presented much ice time for Beaulieu. He skated just 8:25 the game before on Saturday and 6:43 during last Thursday's match.

Nathan Beaulieu dressed as a forward on Thursday.

He played left wing on the fourth line alongside Manny Malhotra and Dale Weise. Beaulieu made a successful transition by recording a power-play assist and a fight against Boston's Matt Fraser.
Nov 14 - 10:00 AM

The Montreal Canadiens have recalled Nathan Beaulieu from the minors.

Beaulieu was sent down on Wednesday, but will now rejoin the team in Edmonton ahead of their game on Monday night. In four games this year, Beaulieu has no points and is a minus-three.
Oct 26 - 7:27 PM

Nathan Beaulieu has been sent to the minors.

Beaulieu's demotion is expected to be short-term. The Canadiens want him to get into an AHL game on Wednesday and he should rejoin Montreal on Sunday.
Oct 22 - 1:11 PM

Nathan Beaulieu will be a healthy scratch Saturday night against the Avalanche.

The fine play of Jared Tinordi is keeping Beaulieu in the press box. He will sit there with Dale Weise Saturday evening.
Oct 18 - 10:47 AM

Despite having two young defensemen in their lineup, the Montreal Canadiens were still able to come back from a three-goal deficit and defeat the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

Nathan Beaulieu was partly to blame on the Flyers’ first goal, while Jarred Tinordi allowed Wayne Simmonds to get past him on the second goal. "With young kids, they’re going to make mistakes," said Habs’ coach Michel Therrien. "But it’s a process and they’re going to get better and better." As they grow in confidence, Beaulieu should become a strong puck mover and point producer from the backend, while Tinordi is more of a shot-blocker and physical presence.

Nathan Beaulieu has made the Montreal Canadiens' defense corps.

"I’m excited. I found out about the news just before we stepped on the ice," Beaulieu said Monday after the Canadiens' practice. Beaulieu made his NHL debut two seasons ago, playing six games with the Habs in 2012-13 before getting 17 more under his belt a year later. "It’s an exciting time but the work has just begun. They (the Montreal brass) really liked my camp. They liked how things went." Beaulieu, 21, is a 6-foot-1, offensive defenseman. He scored 52 points in 53 games in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League three seasons ago.

Rookie defenseman Nathan Beaulieu increased his chances of making the Montreal Canadiens' opening-night roster with two points in a 3-1 exhibition win over the Blackhawks in Chicago Wednesday night.

Beaulieu, who notched 52 points in 53 games in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League last year, had a goal Wednesday and assisted on one scored by Rene Bourque. All four goals in this game were scored in the third period. Michael Bournival put one into the empty net in the final minute. Andrew Shaw scored for Chicago. Beaulieu may well be worth acquiring for your fantasy team. At 6-foot-1, 184 pounds, the 21-year-old skates well and is offensive-minded. Montreal goalie Carey Price turned in a gem, making 31 saves to record the win. Chicago goalie Antti Raanta stopped only 16 of 18 Montreal shots in taking the loss.
Oct 1 - 11:03 PM

Nathan Beaulieu has a shot at making the Habs' opening night roster, and the offensive-minded defenseman could be a fantasy-worthy player down the road.

The 21 year-old is unlikely to make an impact for the coming year, but his 52 points in 53 games in the QMJHL during the 2011-12 season show that once he is comfortable, the 6'1, 184 pounder could be heavily involved in the offense.
Aug 16 - 5:59 PM

Nathan Beaulieu logged just 9:36 of ice time in Monday's 4-0 win over Boston.

Beaulieu picked up an assist and he finished with a plus-2 rating despite his reduced ice time. He was making his NHL playoff debut and playing in his first game since April 19 when he suited up for Hamilton of the AHL.
May 13 - 10:13 AM

Nathan Beaulieu will play in his first career postseason contest on Monday.

Beaulieu had two assists in 17 games with Montreal this season. The 21-year-old also had two assists in six NHL contests in 2012-13.
May 12 - 4:53 PM

Nathan Beaulieu was among 10 players called up by the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.

The Canadiens also called up goaltenders Devan Dubnyk and Dustin Tokarski; forwards Sven Andrighetto, Mike Blunden, Gabriel Dumont, Louis Leblanc and Christian Thomas; and defensemen Davis Drewiske and Greg Pateryn. Montreal's AHL affiliate won't be in the playoffs, so they will make up the club's Black Aces squad. The players aren't expected to see action during the postseason unless injuries pile up.
