Montreal defenceman Nathan Beaulieu has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the team, the Canadiens announced Saturday.
Beaulieu, 22, had one goal and eight assists in 64 games this past season. The six-foot-one 185-pounder will earn US$1 million annually, a slight increase on the $925,000 he made in 2014-15 in the final season of a three-year entry-level contract.
The Strathroy, Ont., native can become a restricted free agent in 2017-’18.
In 87 career NHL games, Beaulieu has one goal and 12 assists. He has three assists in 12 playoff games.
Montreal drafted him 17th overall in 2011 from the Saint John Sea Dogs.
