Francois Beauchemin Signed to 3-Year Extension

The Ducks announced today that defenseman extraordinaire (and the guy that makes Mike Fisher weep at night) Francois Beauchemin has been signed to a three year contract extension. This extension comes on the heels of Beauch playing one of the best games of this season against Phoenix where he scored two goals. After a shaky start to the season, Beauch has become the most solid member of the D-core.

After allowing Beauch to walk in 2009, Bob Murray re-aquired Francois in a trade that sent Joffrey Lupul and Jake Gardiner to Toronto. Not that I'm not grateful to have Beauch re-up, but it stings a little that this all could have been avoided...
