Beauchemin Out Six Months with Torn ACL
The Ducks announced today that defenseman Francois Beauchemin has a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee and will be out for approximately six months.

Beauchemin injured the knee in the third period of Friday night's 4-3 overtime loss to the visiting Nashville Predators when he was hit by center Scott Nichol. He was treated after the game and an MRI conducted Saturday afternoon revealed the tear. The Ducks placed Beauchemin on the long-term injury list and have recalled winger Bobby Ryan and Brett Festerling from the Iowa Chops, the Ducks' affiliate in the AHL.

“This is an unfortunate injury for Francois and we feel badly for him,” said Anaheim Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “However, knowing his character as a player and person, we know he will rebound from this and return to the ice at full strength. Our team has faced adversity before and we expect everyone to step up in his absence.”

Beauchemin, 28 (6/4/80), appeared in 18 games with Anaheim this season, scoring 4-1=5 points, while playing 25:35 minutes per game (second on the team).

Ryan, 21 (3/17/87), appeared in 14 games for Iowa this season, scoring 9-10=19 points with a +2 rating and 19 penalty minutes (PIM). Among AHL leaders, Ryan ranked tied for third in scoring, tied for fourth in goals, tied for 11th in assists, and tied for first in power play goals (6). The 6-2, 208-pound winger recorded points in 12 of his 14 games with the Chops, which included an active seven-game point streak (6-5=11) at the time of his recall.

Selected in the first round (second overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Ryan made his NHL debut with Anaheim last season, scoring 5-5=10 points with six PIM in 23 games. He also made his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut with the Ducks in 2007-08, playing in the first two games of the Conference Quarterfinals against Dallas.

Festerling, 22 (3/3/86), scored 0-5=5 points with a +2 rating and 14 PIM in 14 games with Iowa this season. The 6-1, 214-pound blue-liner ranked second among team defensemen in scoring and tied for first in assists at the time of his recall.

Signed as a free agent on Sept. 14, 2005, Festerling has yet to make his NHL debut. He spent his first professional season with Portland (AHL) in 2007-08, collecting 3-11=14 points with 64 PIM in 74 games. In the 2008 Calder Cup Playoffs, Festerling helped the Pirates to an Eastern Conference Finals appearance, scoring 1-3=4 points in 15 games.
