Ducks' Beauchemin has knee surgery
The Ducks said that defenseman Francois Beauchemin underwent successful reconstructive surgery on ACL in his right knee and hopes to be ready for the start of the 2013-14 season

The Anaheim Ducks said Monday that defenseman Francois Beauchemin underwent successful reconstructive surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and hopes to be ready for the start of the 2013-14 season.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Ronald Glousman at the Kerlan-Jobe Center in Los Angeles.

Beauchemin played for the past month with a torn ligament in his knee and had surgery last Thursday, shortly after the Ducks were eliminated from the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Detroit Red Wings. The Ducks said he's expected to recover completely.

The veteran defenseman, who turns 33 next month, was the Ducks' co-leader in scoring with six points in seven games. Beauchemin had six goals, 18 assists and a plus-19 rating during the regular season.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
