D-man Beaulieu traded for third round pick

After shipping Mikhail Sergachev to the Lightning for Jonathan Drouin, Montreal has now traded away Nathan Beaulieu to the Buffalo Sabres for a third-round pick in 2017 (68th overall).

The Canadiens will receive Buffalo's third-round pick (68th overall) in the 2017 National Hockey League draft. In 2016-17, he played in 74 games, scoring four goals and added 24 assists for a career high 28 points.

Before that Nate split time between Montreal and Hamilton (the Habs old AHL affiliate) from 2012-13 to 2014-15.

That said, there are just 18 days until the week-long Fourth of July recess, and 31 days until the five-week-long August recess. Also Tuesday, Trump said he's sure the Senate will get a health care bill "across the finish line" this summer.

Beaulieu was projected as a mobile, puck-moving defenseman with size, offense and the ability to qb the powerplay.

Beaulieu opened the season on Montreal's opening line before falling down on the depth chart throughout the year.

With Montreal facing elimination in game six of their series against the New York Rangers in the 2017 National Hockey League playoffs, Beaulieu was named as a healthy scratch. Montreal lost that game 3-1 at Madison Square Gardens and lost the series 4-2. The teams announced the trade Saturday prior to the NHL's trade freeze for the Vegas expansion draft. Beaulieu makes sense for the Sabres, though, as he's a smart two-way player who can work on the man advantage.
