At 24 years old, defenseman Nicolas Beaudin hasn't played a game for the Montreal Canadiens since they acquired him from the Blackhawks in an October 2022 trade. In the 16 games he played for AHL Laval this season, Beaudin recorded six assists and a +2 rating, but he hasn't found the back of the net.
