Nathan Beaulieu's Player ProfileThe St. John Sea Dog Defenseman is a stud on the blue line. Beaulieu is an extremely strong skater and loves to move the puck. He skates like the wind and is the quarterback on the powerplay. Look for him to be drafted anywhere from 8-15 and could climb even higher in the ranks. he has top 4 potential, but will need a few years to develop before making the jump.

Another in a list of skilled puck-movers, Beaulieu comes from a good hockey family and has been rising up rankings the past year; especially after a great outing to win the Memorial Cup. An agile and quick skater, Beaulieu is more of a puck mover with crisp passes. He has a big shot which he can use, when the situation calls for it. His calmness with the puck allows him to make the right play most of the time. He’s defensively responsible with a nasty edge and good gap control, as well as an active stick. He’ll stick up for teammates when asked, and has shown he’s a more-then-capable opponent with the mitts.

I REALLY like him. Good size, skates well, competes hard and can shoot. Sees the ice very well, will be a top 4 defenceman for sure and really sky is the limit.
Area for improvement—consistently and realizing that every time you touch the puck you don’t have to do something great—so I guess just a little maturity.
