Ducks put Beauchemin on injured reserve
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin, who sustained an upper-body injury against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday, was placed on the injured reserve list Friday.

ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks placed defenseman Francois Beauchemin on the injured reserve list Friday and recalled defenseman Sami Vatanen from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.

Beauchemin is eligible to be activated Wednesday, meaning he will miss at least three games. Beauchemin crashed headfirst into the boards Wednesday night against the New Jersey Devils. Coach Bruce Boudreau did not have any further update Friday morning other than to say that Beauchemin was day-to-day.

Beauchemin entered Friday tied for third in the League at plus-15 and is plus-18 in the past 22 games. He was ninth in the NHL with 53 blocked shots.

Vatanen, 22, has one goal and five points in 17 games with the Ducks this season.

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
