Beauchemin (rest) will not play Wednesday.

With eight healthy defensemen on the Ducks' roster, head coach Bruce Boudreau will rest one of their regular D-men each game down the stretch as the Ducks prepare for a run at the Stanley Cup. Sami Vatanen is expected to slide into the lineup for Beauchemin.

Francois Beauchemin (upper body) is expected to play on Sunday

Beauchemin has missed the lat 10 games with an upper-body injury that he suffered on November 20. Beauchemin was a fantastic plus-15 with six assists in the first 24 games, so expect him to pick up where he left off on Sunday.

Despite his presence for the morning skate, Beauchemin is not expected to be back in the lineup until next week. Unless he drastically improved in the last few days, Beauchemin will not play against the Wild tonight. However this is great news for the Ducks as he inches closer to a return.

Francois Beauchemin (upper body) is on the trip but just to "get in shape" with the team, but is not close to returning according head coach Bruce Boudreau.

Beauchemin will miss his seventh consecutive game tonight after being injured on November 20 vs. New Jersey. From the sounds of what Bourdreau is saying, Beauchemin remains week-to-week at this point.

Bruce Boudreau said Beauchemin skated here last couple of days. Was evasive in whether he'd be in play tomorrow.

Beauchemin has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury. It does not sound like he will be in the lineup tomorrow, but Beauchemin wants to travel with the team on their two-game road trip starting Friday in Chicago. Monitor his status throughout the week.

Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin played his first game since undergoing reconstructive surgery on his ACL last May and logged a shade over 20 minutes.

Beauchemin had one of the best years of his career in 2013. He scored six goals and added 18 assists (led all Ducks defensemen) in 48 games. At 33-years-old it might be hard for him to bounce back after ACL surgery, but playing over 20 minutes in his first preseason game is a good sign.
