Canadiens recall defenceman Beaulieu, forward Nattinen from AHL Hamilton

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens recalled forward Joonas Nattinen and defenceman Nathan Beaulieu from AHL Hamilton on Friday.

Beaulieu has four goals and 10 assists in 32 AHL games and had one assist in five games for Montreal this season.

The 23-year-old Nattinen has five goals and six assists in 37 games for the Bulldogs this season. He was picked in the third round of the 2009 draft by Montreal. He has yet to play an NHL game.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
