Beaulieu signed a two-year, $2.5 million contract with the Jets on Friday.
Beaulieu struggled with injuries last season, but he proved enough to be signed for two more years in Winnipeg. Through 38 games with the team last year, the 27-year-old blueliner posted a goal, seven assists, 62 hits and 47 blocked shots. He'll likely slot in on the bottom pairing to next season with Josh Morrissey and Dylan DeMelo both returning.
Beaulieu remains stuck in a nine-game pointless streak dating back to Feb. 16 versus Chicago.
Beaulieu isn't exactly an offensive force, considering he has topped the 20-point mark just once in his NHL career. Still, the Jets were likely hoping for more out of the Ontario native and could decide to give Anthony Bitetto a look if Beaulieu continues to struggle offensively.
Beaulieu scored a goal and dished an assist in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Blackhawks.
Beaulieu's first tally of the year came at 1:36 of the third period, and it would be the game-winner. The defenseman now has six points, 47 hits and a plus-10 rating through 27 appearances -- those numbers don't add up to much fantasy relevance.
The Jets cleared Beaulieu (lower body) from injured reserve Tuesday.
Beaulieu will take the place of Mathieu Perrault (upper body) -- who was placed on injured reserve -- on the Jets' active roster but will serve as a scratch for Tuesday's game versus the Predators. Even when he does take the ice, the 27-year-old defenseman's four points (all assists) don't make him a particularly attractive fantasy option.
Beaulieu (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's game against St. Louis, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Beaulieu was a full participant at practice Thursday, so he's definitely closing in on a return to the lineup, but he'll have to wait for Tuesday's matchup with Nashville for his next opportunity to do so.
Coach Paul Maurice said Thursday that Beaulieu (lower body) was a full participant at practice and could return for Saturday's game against St. Louis.
Beaulieu has missed the past 11 games with a lower-body issue but skated in a full contact jersey for the first time since the injury Thursday. Maurice ruled the defenseman out for Friday's game against Boston but added that there's a good chance he'll return Saturday. The 27-year-old has just four assists through 21 games this campaign, so his return won't affect things too much from a fantasy perspective. Expect the team to provide an update on Beaulieu's health in the coming days.
Beaulieu will miss at least a month due to a lower-body injury, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.
Beaulieu was injured in Tuesday's matchup with the Avalanche after blocking a shot. The blueliner is far from an offensive stud -- he's registered just four helpers in 21 games -- but his absence could expose netminder Connor Hellebuyck to more rubber. In Beaulieu's stead, the team will call up a player from the minors, with Cameron Schilling and Sami Niku likely atop the list. Once a decision on who to promote is finalized, Beaulieu figures to be placed on injured reserve.
Beaulieu (lower body) was spotted limping after Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Avalanche, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Beaulieu blocked a shot while killing a penalty in the third period. He was able to take a couple of shifts after the incident, but didn't play during the last 6:43 of the contest. It's unclear if his limited usage was due to the potential injury or a personnel choice by coach Paul Maurice. There should be an update on the defenseman's status prior to Thursday's game against the Maple Leafs.
Beaulieu registered an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 defeat to Carolina.
Beaulieu's helper got the Jets even with Carolina at two goals apiece in the second period before the wheels came off for Winnipeg. While not exactly an offensive force, the blueliner notched assists in two of his last three games but is still looking for his first goal of the year. The 26-year-old should be capable of reaching the 10-point mark for the first time since the 2016-17 campaign when he was with Montreal.
Beaulieu (upper body) had three hits and two blocked shots in 14:14 during Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars.
Beaulieu provided a bit of a physical presence but made no impact on the scoresheet. That's common -- the defenseman has just one assist to go with 19 hits and five blocks through 10 appearances in what has been an injury-plagued campaign.
Beaulieu (upper body) will be in the lineup against the Stars on Thursday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Beaulieu will be back in action following a four-game stint on the shelf. The Ontario native is not exactly an offensive powerhouse - he has just one point in nine games for the Jets this year - but should help limit the amount of shots Connor Hellebuyck sees on a nightly basis. With Beaulieau available, Carl Dahlstrom will be relegated to the press box.
Beaulieu (upper body) could be an option versus Dallas on Thursday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
How Beaulieu responds to the game-day skate Thursday will determine whether he is ready to slot back into the lineup. The Ontario native has just one assist in nine games with the Jets, so fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on a lot of offensive output. If Beaulieu does play against the Stars, it will likely be Carl Dahlstrom who finds himself watching from the press box.
Beaulieu (upper body) could return for Sunday's game against the Ducks, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Beaulieu will remain on injured reserve for the next two games. The Jets have seven healthy defensemen to carry the load until then. The 27-year-old has recorded just one point through nine games.
Beaulieu (upper body) is expected to be sidelined 7-10 days, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports, which will keep him out at least the next three games.
Beaulieu's absence will open the door for either Anthony Bitetto or Carl Dahlstrom to slot back into the lineup. Given the 26-year-old Beaulieu's recovery timeline, the club could decide to designate him for injured reserve in order to free up a roster spot for a player to be brought up from AHL Manitoba. Ville Heinola could be a candidate if the Jets want to add another blueliner.
Beaulieu will not return to Saturday's game after suffering an upper-body injury in the second period.
Beaulieu's departure leaves the Jets with only four defensemen after Josh Morrissey left earlier with a lower-body injury. While nothing has been confirmed, it appeared Beaulieu hurt his hand while blocking a shot. Hopefully, both defensemen can recover in time to suit up for Wednesday's road contest in San Jose. After the game, Jim Toth of TSN 1290 Winnipeg relayed that coach Paul Maurice said Beaulieu would require some tests.
Beaulieu (upper body) was held off the scoresheet but had three hits and two PIM in 18:46 of ice time in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout loss to New Jersey.
Beaulieu returned Tuesday from an injury that kept him sidelined for the first month-plus and he logged 24 shifts for the Jets, almost exclusively at even strength. The 26-year-old had just 12 points in 48 games last season, but his presence does help bolster a blueline that's still without Dustin Byfuglien (suspension) and Tucker Poolman (upper body).
Beaulieu (upper body) will be in the lineup against New Jersey on Tuesday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Beaulieu will be making his 2019-20 season debut after getting hurt just before the start of the year. The Ontario native offers limited fantasy upside, as he has cracked the 20-point mark just once in his eight-year NHL career. With the blueliner available, Luca Sbisa and Carl Dahlstrom will find themselves relegated to the press box, depending on the status of Tucker Poolman (upper body).
Beaulieu (upper body) is expected to make his season debut Tuesday against the Devils, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Beaulieu's upper-body injury kept him off the ice for the first month of the season, but coach Paul Maurice announced he'll likely be lifted from injured reserve and plugged into the lineup Tuesday. The 27-year-old posted five points in 18 games with the Jets last year, and he's expected to start out on the bottom pairing.
Beaulieu (upper body) won't be in action against the Sharks on Friday and is doubtful for Saturday's clash with Vegas as well, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports.
Despite reportedly getting closer to making his season debut, Beaulieu is expected to miss both games of the Jets' back-to-back. Once cleared to play, the blueliner should bump Carl Dahlstrom or Luca Sbisa from the lineup, which could happen as early as Tuesday's matchup with New Jersey. In order to play, Beaulieu will need to be activated off injured reserve, which could see Carl Dahlstrom back on waivers or Tucker Poolman sent back down to the minors.
Beaulieu (upper body) was a full participant at Thursday's practice and could rejoin the lineup as soon as Friday against San Jose, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Beaulieu has yet to play this year due to an upper-body injury, but he appears to be on track to make his season debut against the Sharks. The 26-year-old will likely step into a bottom-four role upon his return.
