Beaulieu welcomed Montreal trading him to Buffalo Sabres


Since then, he has played 225 games in the National Hockey League, scoring seven goals and 53 assists. After finishing his final season with the St. John's Sea Dogs, Beaulieu split time between Montreal and their AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. 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.

Beaulieu opened the season on Montreal's opening line before falling down on the depth chart throughout the year. "After just a handful of games, [then head coach] Michel Therrien decided he had seen enough". The Canadiens were eliminated from the playoffs in that game, losing 3-1.

New coach Claude Julien didn't have a lot of faith in him either as Beaulieu was a healthy scratch for Game-6 of the Habs/NY Rangers series. The teams announced the trade Saturday prior to the NHL's trade freeze for the Vegas expansion draft.

While the Canadiens weren't expected to protect the 2011 first-round pick, Buffalo did at the expense of exposing two more high-profile — and higher-priced — defensemen in Zach Bogosian and Josh Gorges. Beaulieu makes sense for the Sabres, though, as he's a smart two-way player who can work on the man advantage.
