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.

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.
Jan 25 - 12:05 PM

The Montreal Canadiens recalled Nathan Beaulieu from the minors once again on Sunday.

This is the third time Beaulieu has joined the Habs in 2013-14. The 21-year-old defenseman has one assist and three SOG with a +3 rating in six games played this season.
Jan 19 - 6:13 PM

Nathan Beaulieu was returned to Hamilton of the AHL following Montreal's 5-3 loss to Toronto Saturday night.

The rookie defenseman played reasonably well logging 13:36 of ice time and going plus one. Beaulieu is an excellent skater and has some offensive upside. He will be back.
Jan 19 - 10:21 AM

Nathan Beaulieu has been summoned by the Montreal Canadiens.

Beaulieu has 14 points and 21 penalty minutes in 32 AHL games this season. He has a lot of offensive upside, but we don't expect him to have any fantasy value in standard leagues for the rest of the 2013-14 campaign.
Jan 17 - 12:19 PM

The Canadiens sent Nathan Beaulieu back down the AHL after the game Saturday evening.

Beaulieu has one assist in five games with the Habs this season. Montreal doesn't play again until Tuesday, so he might be up again in short order.

Nathan Beaulieu will suit up against Anaheim Thursday night.

He has appeared in NHL three games and made some trips to the minors. The Canadiens sent Jarred Tinordi to the AHL on Wednesday. "Jarred's a helluva hockey player and it's part of the process," Beaulieu said. "I had to go up and down and it's never fun, seeing it or having it happen to you. But Jarred's a tough kid and I know he's going to take it the right way." Beaulieu's spot on the roster isn't secure either, but for now he's up with the big club.
