Francois Beauchemin led the Ducks in ice time during Tuesday's triple-overtime loss with 46:29 minutes.

That's almost double his total from Game 1 of the Western Conference Final on Sunday. It also brought his average up to 25:54 minutes per game in the playoffs. He doesn't get a ton of attention in fantasy circles because his offensive value is frankly limited, but there's no question that he's a big part of the Ducks' success this season.
May 20 - 10:11 AM

The Anaheim Ducks are starting to earn praise for their balanced defense.

It helps that the Ducks' defense is now getting contrasted against Chicago's. The Blackhawks have the higher profile blueline with Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook leading the charge, but they also barely used their bottom-two defensemen in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final. "I think it shows confidence in all six of us," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It's been like that all year. ... It just gives us more diversity when we're playing a team with so much depth like the Blackhawks. They've got four good lines, and it helps to have confidence in all six defensemen."

Francois Beauchemin picked up two assists on Friday.

The blueliner set up both power play goals the Ducks scored to take the game 4-2. Beauchemin now has five assists in eight games during the playoffs after a five goal, 23 point display in 64 regular season games.
May 9 - 5:45 AM

Francois Beauchemin has been a great mentor for young defenseman Hampus Lindholm.

Lindholm was drafted sixth overall in the 2012 draft and Beauchemin has taken him under his wing. Beauchemin is a smart hockey player, always talking on the ice and the perfect complement for the Swedish defender. "Especially my first year, he really helped me out. I felt real safe having him behind me there, that even if I made a bad play he will come in and recover," Lindholm said. "Now, in the second year, we help each other both ways. If he goes up I cover for him, and the opposite. We started to learn each other more and more and that's helping us to be successful."
May 3 - 8:21 AM

Francois Beauchemin had a goal and an assist in a 5-1 win against Edmonton Wednesday night.

Beauchemin has 11 goals and 23 points in 61 contests in 2014-15. It's been pretty close to a typical season for Beauchemin from an offensive production perspective and depending on where he ends up as an unrestricted free agent this summer, it seems fair to expect similar results in 2015-16.
Apr 2 - 10:38 AM

Francois Beauchemin potted a goal in Anaheim's 3-1 win over Montreal on Wednesday.

He added six shots and two pims and was plus-2 in an overall nice fantasy night. Beauchemin now has five goals in his last 11 games and seven points during that stretch. With 18 points in 48 games he is a middle of the pack fantasy blue-liner. Cam Fowler and Rickard Rakell each scored goals in the Ducks win.
Mar 5 - 2:04 AM

Francois Beauchemin scored a goal in a 4-3 shootout win over Detroit Monday night.

Beauchemin has now found the back of the net in three straight games. This is a rare offensive outburst for him, as evidenced by his seven goals and 16 points in 43 contests overall this season.
Feb 24 - 9:48 AM

Francois Beauchemin scored for the second straight game on Saturday.

The defenseman now has six goals and 15 points in 42 games this season and surpassed Oleg Tverdovsky in points by an Anaheim blueliner to move into second place all-time in franchise history with 171. He trails only Scott Niedermayer. The veteran, who can become a UFA at the end of the season, would love to remain as a member of the Ducks.
Feb 22 - 5:43 AM

Francois Beauchemin and defense partner Hampus Lindholm were each a plus-four on Friday.

Beauchemin also picked up his fifth goal of the season in the 6-3 win and the point tied him for second place all-time among Anaheim defensemen with Oleg Tverdovsky at 170 points, trailing only Scott Niedermayer. Beauchemin now has 14 points in 41 games with a plus-eight rating. He is a fringe pickup in deeper pools.
Feb 21 - 5:14 AM

Francois Beauchemin scored a goal in Anaheim's 3-1 win against Carolina.

Beauchemin has four goals and 12 points in 38 contests in 2014-15. Beauchemin has had a few offensively noteworthy campaigns over the course of his career, but at the age of 34 we don't anticipate him having much fantasy value in standard leagues going forward.
Feb 13 - 10:31 AM

Francois Beauchemin scored the lone goal for the Ducks in a 4-1 loss to New York on Wednesday.

The goal was on the power-play as Beauchemin blasted it through a screen to beat Lundqvist. It was the only one the Ducks could get back though as King Henrik stonewalled them the rest of the game. Beauchemin has goals in back-to-back games for three on the season. Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf each added assists on the goal.
Jan 8 - 1:53 AM

Francois Beauchemin scored a goal in a 4-3 shootout win over Nashville.

Beauchemin has scored two goals in the span of four games after failing to find the back of the net in his first 19 contests. He has seven points and a plus-seven rating in 23 games this season.
Jan 5 - 10:07 AM

Francois Beauchemin scored his first goal of the season in a 2-1 win over Vancouver.

Beauchemin now has six points in 20 contests in 2014-15. He should more or less maintain that point-per-game pace.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 10:15:00 AM

The Anaheim Ducks will see Francois Beauchemin return to the lineup on Saturday.

In 18 games this season, Beauchemin has five points, a +3 rating, six PIM, 22 SOG and 30 hits. He's obviously not spectacular, yet his versatility at least makes him intriguing in especially deep formats. He missed time with a broken finger and also the mumps, so it's reasonable to expect better things going forward.
