Nathan Beaulieu is happy he and the Canadiens were able to get a deal done on Saturday.
"I wouldn’t say it was a priority," Beaulieu added of needing to get his signature on a contract, not having been eligible for salary arbitration. "But I knew what I wanted and once Montreal and I contacted each other, we (realized we) had the same game plan, the same mindframe. It was very easy to get the job done. I’m very happy with how everything played out." The young defenseman didn't post big numbers in 2014-15, but he was a solid presence on the Habs' blue line. It looks like he's going to have a bright future going forward. Jun 14 - 10:02 AM

Nathan Beaulieu signed a two-year extension with the Canadiens on Saturday.

The contract, a one-way deal, is worth $2 million. The 22-year-old defenseman had nine points in 64 games this season, along with 45 penalty minutes. He had one assist in five games during the playoffs.
Jun 13 - 3:29 PM

Nathan Beaulieu sustained a fractured sternum in Game 3 against Ottawa.

He was hit hard by Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson in that game and he didn't return until Game 5 versus Tampa Bay.
May 14 - 1:35 PM

Nathan Beaulieu played 14:29 in his return to game action on Saturday night against Tampa Bay.

The Canadiens won the game 2-1 and they have cut Tampa Bay's best-of-seven series lead to 3-2. Beaulieu missed seven games with an upper body injury after he was hit by Erik Karlsson in the previous series against Ottawa. He took Greg Pateryn's spot in the lineup.
May 10 - 10:41 AM

The Montreal Canadiens are injecting defenseman Nathan Beaulieu into the lineup for Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Beaulieu, 22, scored nine points and generated 45 PIM in 64 games for the Habs during the regular season. He also grabbed an assist in three postseason contests, so he's already gotten his feet wet at this level (with 10 career NHL playoff games).
May 9 - 6:45 PM

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Nathan Beaulieu has been cleared for contact.

That makes the young blueliner a game-time decision for Game 5 of the Habs' series against the Tampa Bay Lightning. It's tough to imagine Montreal making any tweaks considering how well they've played lately, but we will see.
May 9 - 1:36 PM

Nathan Beaulieu (upper body) took part in Tuesday's practice.

He hadn't participated in a Canadiens' practice since he absorbed a hard hit from Ottawa's Erik Karlsson in Game 3 of the first round. He's still not expected to play until Saturday at the earliest.
May 5 - 3:33 PM

Nathan Beaulieu (upper body) isn't expected to play in Montreal's first four games of the second round.

He hasn't played since he was leveled by Ottawa's Erik Karlsson in Game 3 during the opening round. It was reported last week that Beaulieu does not have a concussion, but his return to the lineup doesn't appear to be close.
Apr 29 - 1:10 PM

Nathan Beaulieu's upper-body injury isn't a concussion.

Teams typically don't provide a lot of details when it comes to injuries in the playoffs, but we can at least scratch one possibility off the list. That's obviously great news for Beaulieu given how much different and in some cases more serious a concussion is to your typical injury. That being said, Beaulieu has been ruled out for the remainder of the first round.
Apr 21 - 2:35 PM

Nathan Beaulieu will miss the rest of the first round due to an upper-body injury.

Beaulieu was hurt after being on the receiving end of a big hit from Ottawa's Erik Karlsson in Game 3 on Sunday. Beaulieu initially stayed in contest, but couldn't complete the game. He had a goal and nine points in 64 regular season games.
Apr 21 - 12:31 PM

Nathan Beaulieu was lined up for two big hits by Ottawa's Erik Karlsson in Game 3 on Sunday night.

He was nailed after taking a suicide pass from Tom Gilbert in the second period. Beaulieu managed to stay in the game, but he didn't get any playing time in the third period or in overtime.
Apr 20 - 10:56 AM

Nathan Beaulieu (flu) will be sidelined for Monday's game versus Tampa Bay.

The 22-year-old defensemen will be held out of the lineup Monday night due to flu-like symptoms. With Emelin returning to the lineup, either Sergei Gonchar or Greg Pateryn will dress in place of Beaulieu. The former first round pick has a goal and six assists in 54 games played this season.
Mar 16 - 7:01 PM

It looks as if Nathan Beaulieu will be a healthy scratch Saturday night.

He will likely not play against the Islanders after dropping down to the fourth defenseman pairing with Mike Weaver in practice on Friday. Recently-recalled Greg Pateryn practised with Sergei Gonchar on the Habs' third pairing and looks poised to play against the Isles in Beaulieu's place.
Mar 14 - 9:45 AM

The Canadiens have relied on Nathan Beaulieu to play more minutes of late and he has responded by playing the best hockey of his career.

The 22-year-old averages over 15 minutes of ice per game, but he has played at least 23:45 in each of his last three games. "I feel like the game is slowing down for me," said Beaulieu. "After getting my first goal, I felt like so much came off my shoulders. I know it wasn't the prettiest one, not how I dreamed of it, but a goal's a goal…Things are coming together for me now." Beaulieu hasn't put up many points but that part of his game will come with time.
Feb 22 - 9:29 AM

Nathan Beaulieu potted his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Ottawa.

The 22-year-old blueliner has turned himself into a regular on the Canadiens this season, but he isn't worth looking at for fantasy hockey. He has six points in 42 games to go with 39 shots and 36 penalty minutes.
