Nathan Beaulieu picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 OT loss to the New Jersey Devils.

The 22-year-old is a smooth skater who moves the puck well, but that hasn't translated into a high number of points yet. Beaulieu has two goals and eight points in 25 games this season. He isn't worth owning in standard leagues, but keep your eye on him because he has a good amount of potential.

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.
