Beaulieus Plead Guilty

Former Sea Dogs defenseman Nathan Beaulieu and his father, former Sea Dogs head coach and general manager Jacques Beaulieu, both pleaded guilty to assault charges today in London.

They were granted conditional discharges with probation and their lawyer confirmed outside court that the sentence will allow Nathan Beaulieu to play hockey. 
Strathroy-Caradoc police charged each of them with two counts of assault in late April stemming from an altercation at a house party that followed a charity golf tournament. 
Two people suffered minor injuries, police said.

So there’s that.

Jacques, who was with the Sea Dogs from 2006-2009, was fired by the Ontario Hockey League’s Sarnia Sting back in May.

Meanwhile, Nathan, a first-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens in 2011, will likely play for the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs again this year. He made his NHL debut last season, appearing in six games with the Habs.

The younger Beaulieu is scheduled to appear in the Wallace McCain Memorial Alumni Game next weekend at Harbour Station.
