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.

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.

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.
Apr 21 - 5:29 PM

The Canadiens assigned Nathan Beaulieu to Hamilton of the AHL on Thursday.

He was up for Wednesday night's contest and logged 16:29 of ice time in order to give Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin a night off heading into the playoffs. Should there be an injury on the Habs' blueline during the post season, Beaulieu will likely be back in Montreal.
Apr 12 - 11:01 AM

Nathan Beaulieu suited up in his first game since Feb. 8 on Wednesday night.

He logged 16:29 of ice time and posted a plus-1 rating in Montreal's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago. Beaulieu got to play in his first game since before the Olympic break after the Canadiens rested Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin.
Apr 10 - 10:36 AM

The Montreal Canadiens have promoted Nathan Beaulieu.

Beaulieu will spend Friday's game in the press box, but will get work at some point during his NHL stint. "The goal is to make sure he's ready," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said. "For sure we'll get him into a game, but I can't tell you right now exactly when that will be. We'll make sure that when he does play, he's ready."
Apr 4 - 4:17 PM

The Canadiens have assigned Nathan Beaulieu to the Hamilton Bulldogs in the AHL.

Beaulieu has been playing very well with the Habs, with two points and a +2 rating in 16 games. This move is just to keep the 21 year-old fresh during the Olympic break. We expect the Habs to recall him for their game on Wed Feb. 26.
Feb 9 - 4:47 PM

The Montreal Canadiens feel comfortable using Nathan Beaulieu on their back end, so Raphael Diaz was moved to Vancouver for Dale Weise to add size to the lineup.

In 13 games this season, Beaulieu has one assist, 15 blocks and a plus-2 rating. If Beaulieu is unable to seize the opportunity then Greg Pateryn or Jarred Tinordi could be utilized instead.
Feb 4 - 7:51 AM

Nathan Beaulieu might have been the only Habs' bright spot in Montreal's 4-1 loss to Detroit Friday night.

Beaulieu, who was recently re-called from Hamilton of the AHL, certainly impressed Habs' coach Michel Therrien. "That young kid Beaulieu played a solid game," Therrien said. "When he has been up before, he's always had a good start, but his game went down. Now, he's gained in confidence and that's a good sign for us." As Beaulieu has some offensive upside, we are advising you to put him on your watch list.
