Francois Beauchemin: The Newest Toronto Defenseman

Jack PorterCorrespondent IJuly 6, 2009

According to Rogers Sportsnet, the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed defenseman Francois Beauchemin to a three-year deal worth something in the area of $10 million.

Beauchemin played in only 20 games last season but recorded five points and a minus three rating. Beauchemin is the third defenseman Toronto has added this offseason, leading to speculation that some current Toronto defenseman are being shopped. This includes longtime Leaf Tomas Kaberle.

The deal is to be worth $3.8 million a season for three years.

Beauchemin, who was selected in the third round 75th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1998, is now the 11th defenseman on the Leafs roster.
