Beaulieu welcomed Montreal trading him to Buffalo Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Understanding his days were numbered in Montreal, defenseman Nathan Beaulieu welcomed the trade that sent him to the Buffalo Sabres.

Aside from getting a fresh start with a Phil Housley-coached team placing a value on puck-moving defensemen, Beaulieu expressed relief he didn't have to deal with the uncertainty of being exposed in the NHL's expansion draft.

"It definitely took the stress level off me," Beaulieu said during a conference call Sunday, a day after being traded. "Having that happen just before the (trade) freeze was a huge sigh of relief. And going to Buffalo was a bonus."
