Today, the London Free Press is reporting that “Nathan Beaulieu is now facing two assault charges in connection with a dustup at a house party in Strathroy last weekend, police said.”
Nathan’s father, former Sea Dogs head coach and general manager Jacques Beaulieu, was charged with two counts of assault yesterday.
"There's two victims and (Jacques and Nathan Beaulieu) are each charged with one count of assault against each victim," said Deputy Chief Mark Campbell to the Free Press.
Check out the article for full details. Buzzing The Net and The Canadian Press also have articles about the situation.
Nathan Beaulieu was recalled to the Canadiens last week with Hamilton’s season over. He played in six NHL games in his first season as a pro. The Free Press called him a “superstar” which may be a bit premature.
This is cool:
Very proud and honored to be one of the Vancouver Canucks' black aces for a few weeks!

Corbeil, who played one-and-a-half seasons with Saint John and helped the team win two President Cups and a Memorial Cup, spent the 2012-13 season playing for the Missouri Mavericks of the Central Hockey League. He went 10-9 with a 2.69 GAA and 0.915 SV% in the regular season and 3-1 record with a 2.24 GAA and 0.924 SV% in the playoffs.
Stephen MacAulay is the only remaining former Sea Dog playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs. MacAulay and the Halifax Mooseheads begin their President Cup Final series on Friday night at the Metro Centre against the Baie-Comeau Drakkar. That game will air nationally on Sportsnet.
MacAulay has five goals and seven assists in 11 post-season games. He had 13 points in last year’s playoff run with Saint John. The Cole Harbour native is playing in his fourth straight President Cup Final.
Halifax is a perfect 12-0 in the post-season this year. Game 1 of the championship series is Friday and Game 2 is Saturday before the series shifts to Baie-Comeau.
The Florida Panthers did not win last night’s NHL Draft Lottery, but they will be picking second overall in this year’s draft. With Colorado selecting first, there is a good chance that Florida will get to choose either Nathan MacKinnon or Jonathan Drouin. Putting one of those two on a line with Jonathan Huberdeau could be deadly.
