The Montreal Canadiens have recalled defenceman Nathan Beaulieu from the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs.
Beaulieu has played two games with Montreal this season, recording no points and no penalty minutes.
He has also played one game with Hamilton, recording three shots on goal and two penalty minutes in a 2-1 loss against the Toronto Marlies on Sunday.
The six-foot-two, 194-pound defenceman was named the Bulldogs' most valuable player and top rookie last season, recording seven goals and 24 assists in 67 games.
He also spent six regular-season games with the Canadiens, recording two assists.
