Beauchemin returns to the Ducks for his third tour with the team having played the last two seasons with the Colorado Avalanche. In his nine seasons with the Ducks, Beauchemin registered 53 goals and 179 points including a career-best 11 goals in the 2014-15 season with the team.

Its a big change," Beauchemin said. "But I talked to my wife and kids and we're all excited about going back. Easy decision."

Its really exciting. Having a chance to go back to the playoffs again and the chance of advancing is a great opportunity.
