Hurricanes' Nathan Beaulieu: Signs professional tryout
Beaulieu agreed to a professional tryout agreement with Carolina on Monday.
Beaulieu contributed four assists, 33 shots on goal, 80 blocked shots and 49 hits in 52 appearances with Anaheim last season. It will be a difficult task for him to crack Carolina's crowded blue line out of training camp. Still, an impressive showing for Beaulieu could land him a contract with the Hurricanes as a depth option or with a different team.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Nathan Beaulieu: Still quiet on offense
Beaulieu has gone 26 games without a point.
Beaulieu's place in the lineup has stabilized as injuries have piled up throughout the year, but he's rarely contributed on offense. His last point was an assist versus the Sabres on Jan. 21. The 30-year-old defenseman is at four assists, a minus-24 rating, 33 shots on net, 46 hits, 76 blocked shots and 37 PIM while logging bottom-four minutes.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Nathan Beaulieu: Fights in overtime loss

Ducks' Nathan Beaulieu: Slipping out of favor
Beaulieu played in nine of the Ducks' 14 games in December.
Beaulieu was a healthy scratch for the last two games of the month after Urho Vaakanainen returned from an illness. Aside from toughness, Beaulieu hasn't added much else from a bottom-four role -- he has no points in his last 10 outings. The 30-year-old defenseman is at three assists, a minus-11 rating, 28 hits, 30 PIM and 36 blocked shots through 21 appearances, and it looks like he'll have an uphill battle for playing time heading into 2023....

Ducks' Nathan Beaulieu: Lands on injured reserve
Beaulieu (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.
It's unclear when Beaulieu suffered the injury, though he's missed three straight games for the Ducks after a fight in a Nov. 9 game versus the Wild. His absence has allowed steady playing time for Colton White and Simon Benoit. If Beaulieu's placement on IR is retroactive, he is eligible to return whenever ready.... See More ... See Less

Beaulieu had his first fight of the year when he dropped the gloves with Luke Kunin in the second period. In the third, Beaulieu checked off another first by earning his first assist of the year on a Max Comtois goal. The 29-year-old Beaulieu has been a rotational option on the Ducks' blue line so far, posting 13 blocked shots, 10 hits, three shots on net and nine PIM in six contests. He'll likely compete with Simon Benoit and Colton White for playing time, which should be a little easier to find since Jamie Drysdale (shoulder) is out for the next four months.... See More ...

Ducks' Nathan Beaulieu: Signs one-year deal
The Ducks signed Beaulieu to a one-year contract worth $850,000 on Saturday.

Beaulieu signed a professional tryout offer with the Ducks on Friday, per CapFriendly.

Penguins' Nathan Beaulieu: Removed from injured reserve
Beaulieau (lower body) has been removed from injured reserve Thursday, per the NHL media site.
Beaulieu is unlikely to see significant minutes in the postseason even if he does manage to get into a game. Considering the 29-year-old's limited offensive upside, he will be hard-pressed to offer more than low-end fantasy value even if he does play at some point.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Nathan Beaulieu: Should be available for postseason
Beaulieau (lower body) is expected to be an option for the Penguins in the playoffs, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports Friday.
Beaulieau has yet to suit up in a Penguins sweater, having already been sidelined with his lower-body injury when acquired by the club at the trade deadline. Given his physical style of play, if Beaulieau does get into the lineup it would likely be in favor of Marcus Pettersson or John Marino... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Nathan Beaulieu: Practices with team Tuesday
Beaulieu (lower body) took the ice with his teammates for the first time Tuesday, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
Beaulieu hasn't played since early March when he was with the Jets due to his lower-body injury. Even once cleared to play, the 29-year-old defenseman is far from a lock for the lineup, though his 6-foot-2 frame could see him pressed into service in a third-pairing role in order to give the Penguins more size....

Penguins' Nathan Beaulieu: Begins skating
Beaulieau (lower body) has resumed skating back in Pittsburgh, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
Beaulieu didn't travel with the team to Long Island and has yet to join the team on the ice, so his return is likely still a little ways away. The blueliner was dealing with his lower-body issue when the club acquired him at the deadline and has yet to make his Penguins debut. At this point, even if he does get back to 100 percent, Beaulieu is far from a lock to play and could serve as an emergency depth option.... See More ... See Less
