Ducks Sign Beauchemin to Contract Extension

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed defenseman Francois Beauchemin to a two-year contract extension. Beauchemin is now under contract through the 2008-2009 season. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

"We are very pleased to have three of our key defensemen under contract for the next three years," said Anaheim Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke. "Francois has brought character and skill to our hockey club and we are happy to have him signed long-term."

The 6-0, 214-pound Beauchemin appeared in his first full NHL season in 2005-2006, playing with both Columbus and Anaheim. The Sorel, Quebec, native led all NHL rookie defensemen, scoring 3-6=9 points in 16 postseason games. During the regular season, he earned 8-28=36 points and finished third in the NHL in time on ice among league rookies (23:09), ranking fourth in points and tied for fourth in assists among rookie defensemen.

Beauchemin was acquired from Columbus with Tyler Wright in exchange for Sergei Fedorov and a fifth round draft choice in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft on Nov. 15, 2005. The 26-year-old (6/4/80) helped the Ducks to a regular season record of 35-20-8 following his acquisition and finished second on the club's roster in time on ice and shifts per game (25.7).

Beauchemin was claimed on waivers by Columbus on Sept. 15, 2004. He was originally drafted in the third round (75th overall) by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
