Nathan Beaulieu was taken to the hospital as a precaution after he was struck in the throat by a shot Tuesday night.

Coach Michel Therrien provided some good news after the game when he said that the injury isn't believed to be serious.

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.
Nov 22 - 9:22 PM

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.
Nov 20 - 9:51 AM

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).
Sep 27 - 10:42 PM

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.
Mar 31 - 10:30 PM

Nathan Beaulieu suffered an upper-body injury in Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Canadiens have already announced that he won't be returning to the game. The 23-year-old missed a stretch of 10 games from the end of February through the middle of March because of a lower-body injury. He's day-to-day at this point.
Mar 31 - 8:38 PM

Nathan Beaulieu (lower body) is ready to draw back into the lineup.

Beaulieu last played on Feb. 22. He has two goals and 17 points in 56 contests this season.
Mar 16 - 1:59 PM

Nathan Beaulieu (lower body) skated with his teammates on Monday.

Coach Michel Therrien expects Beaulieau to be available to return sometime this week.
Mar 15 - 10:29 AM

Nathan Beaulieu (lower body) will miss the next two-to-three weeks.

Beaulieu sustained the injury during Monday's game. He's been moved to the injured reserve list, based on the team's official roster page, which makes sense given his projected timetable. He has two goals and 17 points in 56 contests this season.
Feb 26 - 11:52 AM

Nathan Beaulieu will not travel with his teammates to Washington for Wednesday night's game because of a lower-body injury.

He limped off the ice early in the third period, but he managed to return to the game. Consider him day-to-day.
Feb 23 - 11:24 AM

Nathan Beaulieu, who missed Friday's game with a lower-body injury, practiced on Sunday and will play Monday against Arizona.

If you need Bealieu, get ready to activate him for Monday night's contest.
Feb 15 - 11:30 AM

Nathan Beaulieu and Jacob De La Rose will be scratched from Friday's match with Buffalo.

Through 52 games this season Beaulieu has posted 16 points with 41 PIMs with 45 hits and 70 blocks on the season. Not too shabby if your league is deep enough.
