Beauchemin Nominated for the 2013-14 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy
Beauchemin, 33 (6/4/80), has scored 4-11=15 points with a +22 rating and 37 penalty minutes (PIM) in 68 games with the Ducks this season. Ranked tied for 10th among NHL defensemen in plus/minus and tied for 11th in blocked shots (168), Beauchemin is also second on the Ducks in time-on-ice (23:04 TOI). The 6-1, 207-pound blueliner underwent successful anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgery on his right knee on May 20, 2013 and returned to the ice as a member of the Ducks’ 2013-14 Opening Night lineup on Oct. 2 at Colorado. Beauchemin also missed 10 games earlier this season with an upper-body injury from Nov. 22-Dec. 11.
Acquired from Toronto in exchange for Joffrey Lupul, Jake Gardiner and a conditional fourth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft on Feb. 9, 2011, Beauchemin was selected by Montreal in the third round (75th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
