Ducks Lose Beauchemin For Six Months

Ducks d-man Francois Beauchemin suffered a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in the third period of Friday’s 4-3 loss to Nashville and is expected to miss around six months of action.

He underwent an MRI on yesterday which revealed the full extent of the injury. Beauchemin appeared in 18 games with Anaheim this season and scored five points, including four goals and one assist.

Right winger Bobby Ryan and defenceman Brett Festerling were both called up in Beauchemin’s absence. Festerling will try to step into Beauchemin's spot and help the Ducks blueline.
