Montreal Canadiens call up Nathan Beaulieu... Again

For some reason the Habs waited to call up Beaulieu until later in the day after calling up Holland and Blunden.

The Montreal Canadiens have announced via their official twitter account that Nathan Beaulieu has been recalled from Hamilton once again. I think by now we can call Beaulieu the human yoyo.

I'm not sure why the Canadiens waited to do this until now when they called up Michael Blunden and Patrick Holland earlier, but I'm sure they had their reasons.

Here's the press release out of Hamilton:

MONTREAL, QUEBEC - Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Canadiens have recalled defenceman Nathan Beaulieu from the Bulldogs.

Beaulieu has appeared in one game with Hamilton this season, recording three shots on goal and two penalty minutes in a 2-1 loss against the Toronto Marlies on Sunday, October 20th. He has also played two games with Montreal this season, recording no points and no penalty minutes.

The 20-year-old split last season between Hamilton and Montreal. Last season, 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.
