Francois Beauchemin Signs in Toronto

TSN is reporting that Francois Beauchemin has signed a 3-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs worth an average of $3.8 million per season.

“Francois will be a welcome addition to our blueline,” Leafs President and general manager Brian Burke said in a statement.  “He’s a rock solid, steady defender that will add character to our team.”

This is a very solid pick-up by the Maple Leafs. Beauchemin is a proven NHL defender who will make the Leafs much tougher to play against. The price tag is a little steep for a guy coming off an MCL injury, but if he is healthy, the Leafs will have a Top 4 guy in the prime of his career. Burke continues to rebuild the team into a bigger, tougher and more North American entity and the Beauchemin signing will do wonders with the back end.

The Jets remain off but both the Moose and Ice are in action tomorrow.

Manitoba will be in Milwaukee to take on the Admirals.

Ice will be in Brandon to take on the Wheat Kings.
