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 started the season as Shea Weber's partner but ended the season as a healthy scratch in the Canadiens' season-ending loss to the Rangers in the first-round of the National Hockey League playoffs.

He opened the season as Shea Weber's partner on the top defense pairing, but quickly found himself lower on the depth chart. The nail in the coffin was Beaulieu being a healthy scratch during Game 6 of the first round of the postseason against the New York Rangers.

Alleged Alexandria Gunman Has Ties To Quad Cities
Court records reviewed and obtained by NBC News show that Hodgkinson was charged in 2006 with assaulting his girlfriend. According to police reports, Hodgkinson has twice been involved in gun-related matters involving law enforcement.

There is a roster freeze effective today at 3 p.m. EST.

What made Nate so successful was his time in the QMJHL when he played four seasons with the Saint John Sea Dogs putting up 152 points in 233 games with 206 penalty minutes and a massive plus 124 rating.

Beaulieu immediately improves the Sabres' blue line under new coach Phil Housley, a Hall of Fame defenseman. Montreal was in danger of losing Beaulieu in the expansion draft, while Buffalo has room to protect him.
