==Scouting report==
 
Beaulieu is a two-way, puck moving defenseman with very good skating abilities. Offensively, he can get very creative with his good vision and skating. He has a good first pass. He also defends well and blocks shots. He's consistently growing as a leader and doesn't mind fighting from time to time.
 
Beaulieu is also very inconsistent offensively, as he can get invisible for a game and then be very flashy for another. He doesn't produce a good amount of points and is not a very good finisher. His shot is average but can pull off a decent one-timer from the point. He also is very risky as he can cause bad turnovers when trying to get too fancy.
 
 
==Personal life==
 
===Assault Charge===
 
On April 27, 2013, Beaulieu, along with his father Jacques, were involved in an altercation in their hometown of [[Strathroy, Ontario]]. The incident in question took place following a charity golf tournament at a private residence and stemmed from property damages by the Beaulieus. As a result, two people were assaulted and suffered minor injuries.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/2013/08/14/montreal-canadiens-prospect-dad-plead-guilty-to-assault-charges|title=Montreal Canadiens prospect, dad plead guilty to assault charges|publisher=Brantford Expositor|accessdate=June 1, 2015}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/news/habs-prospect-nathan-beaulieu-pleads-guilty-to-assault-charges/|title=Habs prospect Nathan Beaulieu pleads guilty to assault charges|publisher=CBS Sports|accessdate=November 13, 2016}}</ref>
 
 
In August 2013, Beaulieu and his father pleaded guilty to assault. Each was assessed penalties of conditional discharges with nine months' probation -- a joint recommendation from the Crown and the defence.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/2013/08/14/montreal-canadiens-prospect-dad-plead-guilty-to-assault-charges|title=Montreal Canadiens prospect, dad plead guilty to assault charges|publisher=Brantford Expositor|accessdate=June 1, 2015}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/canadiens-prospect-nathan-beaulieu-pleads-guilty-to-assault-1.1346230|title=Canadiens prospect Nathan Beaulieu pleads guilty to assault|publisher=The Canadian Press|accessdate=December 13, 2015}}</ref>
