Beauchemin has only a goal and 11 points in 50 games, a far cry from last season's offensive effort of six goals and 24 points in 48 contests, but this is his second straight season of outstanding plus/minus as he is tied for third with a plus-26 after going plus-19 in 2012-13.

He has 81 blocks, 28th best in the NHL and second best on the Ducks, six behind Cam Fowler.

Anaheim defenseman Francois Beauchemin, who has missed 10 games with an upper-body injury, says he's ready to return to the Ducks' lineup for their game Sunday against the Edmonton Oilers.

"Three weeks now," said Beauchemin, who last missed this amount of games in 2009 when he tore his ACL. "It’s a long time. It's the most I've missed in awhile. I'm just pretty anxious to get back out there."

Francois Beauchemin is looking to return on December 15 from his upper body injury.

The defenseman has missed the last eight games in a row and his solid play has been missed as he had six assists and a plus-15 rating before the injury. Beauchemin said he was at 50 percent at this time. "It's been good to just get back on the ice and be moving again," Beauchemin said. "I'm just going to keep practicing for a couple more days and see how things are going to go. Hopefully I'll get back soon."

Francois Beauchemin (upper body) began skating on Friday but still is not close to a return.

It is thought that Beauchemin will return to action in mid-December. He accompanied the Ducks on their current road trip so the fact that he is now skating is good news. He had six assists and a plus-15 rating before the injury and has now missed the last seven games in a row.

Francois Beauchemin sat out his second straight game with an upper body injury.

Beauchemin picked up the injury on Wednesday. He has six assists in 24 games with a plus-15 rating and 19 penalty minutes so he has value in traditional pools. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Francois Beauchemin sustained an upper-body injury in the second period of Wednesday's game.

Beauchemin is currently being listed as day-to-day, although Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau conceded that "to lose him for any time is a big thing." Beauchemin has six points and averaging 21:55 minutes in 24 games this season.

The plus/minus stat may be reviled by many, but it's common in fantasy, and Francois Beauchemin has been delivering that for the Anaheim Ducks the past two seasons.

He had an impressive +19 mark and is already +11 in 2013-14, including a +3 mark from last night's domination of Buffalo. This good run might dry up a bit (he's a -9 in his career), but you never know. He hasn't been useful for much more than that and TOI this season, only registering three points (all assists).

Francois Beauchemin has gone seven games without a point after again being kept off the score sheet in Tuesday’s loss to Toronto.

The 33 year-old defender is not supposed to be a lethal offensive threat, but after posting 24 points in 48 games last year he proved he may have some good fantasy value this season. However, being involved in just two of Anaheim’s 32 goals so far (ranking the Ducks third in the league) is not promising.

The Ducks' goal differential in their six past games -- all wins -- with defenseman Francois Beauchemin on the ice is plus-12, a striking stat given his May knee ligament surgery and typical six-to-eight-months recovery period.

"The fact he can be doing what he's doing is quite a thing," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He puts himself in the right place at the right time." Beauchemin, 33, still requires extended physical treatments after practices and games, saying he's "trying to get stronger and get back my power. . .That's a stat that doesn't tell everything about the game. As long as I'm comfortable enough to help the team, that's why I wanted to be out here."
