Sabres acquire defenseman from Canadiens

Sabres acquire defenseman from Canadiens

He's definitely going to be playing top four minutes with Buffalo and since they're likely going to lose a defenseman like Dmitry Kulikov in the expansion draft, Beaulieu has been a key acquisition.

Vancouver Canucks centre Michael Chaput (45) fights for control of the puck with Montreal Canadiens defenceman Nathan Beaulieu (28) during first period National Hockey League action in Vancouver on March 7, 2017.

Beaulieu was the Habs' first-round pick in the 2011 draft. In 225 career National Hockey League regular-season games, Beaulieu has totaled 60 points (7 goals, 53 assists) and a plus-19 rating, adding four points in 17 career playoff games.

Last season, the defenceman struggled.

Draymond Green gets in the mix in Game 4 against Cavs
Green knows there are those out there who wish he wasn't so confrontational all the time, but in his mind, he's got to be him. Just saying the name of Golden State forward Draymond Green causes many Cleveland fans to seethe with rage.


Beaulieu has played in parts of five seasons with the Canadiens and at 24 years old, is a strong skating defender who could help the Sabres on the 2nd or 3rd pairing. In 17 career playoff games, Beaulieu posted four assists.

The deal was made less than two hours before the Expansion Draft trade freeze and will allow the Canadiens to protect a different blueliner with their third protection slot (one of Jordie Benn, Brandon Davidson, or Alexei Emelin).

Beaulieu immediately improves the Sabres' blue line under new coach Phil Housley, a Hall of Fame defenseman.
