MONTREAL (AP) - Defenseman Nathan Beaulieu has signed a $2 million, two-year contract, the Montreal Canadiens said Saturday.

Beaulieu, 22, had one goal and eight assists in 64 games this past season.

The 6-foot-1 185-pound Beaulieu is set to earn $1 million per season, a slight increase on the $925,000 he made in 2014-15 in the final season of a three-year entry-level contract. He can become a restricted free agent in 2017-‘18.

In 87 NHL games, Beaulieu has one goal and 12 assists. He has three assists in 12 playoff games.

Montreal drafted Beaulieu 17th overall in 2011 from the Saint John Sea Dogs.
