MONTREAL, QUEBEC – Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Canadiens have recalled defenceman Nathan Beaulieu from the Bulldogs.
Beaulieu appeared in one pre-season game with Hamilton, recording the only assist on Sven Andrighetto’s game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over the Utica Comets on Thursday, October 3rd.
The 20-year-old split last season between Hamilton and Montreal. The 6’2”, 194-pound defenceman was named the Bulldogs’ Most Valuable Player and Top Rookie and also shared top defenceman honours with Jarred Tinordi. In 67 regular season games with Hamilton, the Strathroy, Ontario native recorded 31 points (seven goals, 24 assists) and 63 penalty minutes. In six regular season games with Montreal, he recorded two assists and no penalty minutes.
Beaulieu was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the first round (17th overall) in the 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
Hamilton’s next game is its regular season and home opener, scheduled for Friday, October 11th at 7:30 p.m. against the St. John’s IceCaps at Copps Coliseum. The club will host a home opener street party starting at 5:00 p.m., which will feature food provided by Maple Lodge Farms, family entertainment, sponsor vendors and a beer garden serving Molson products. Y108 will also be hosting its Drive Show live at the street party from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
