I like the fact that he has mean aspect in his game he is not the guy that hits a lot but when he does he dishes out a good hit. He is far from being soft, i think he has the potential to be a 40-50 points 1st paring two way dman a la Brian Campbell.
I wish he would hit more though. The purpose of hitting is not always to hurt the player, you do it to stop the opponent. Beaulieu is much too passive in this regard in the defensive zone. He needs to use his body to break up plays more, and you don't have to be a physical beast to do it. Gorges and Diaz are good examples of guys who are not huge but aren't afraid to throw their bodies in the way to disrupt a play. Beaulieu needs to take a lesson from these guys.
