ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Francois Beauchemin keeps coming back to the Anaheim Ducks, and his third stint probably will be the final NHL season.
The veteran defenseman agreed to an incentive-laden one-year contract Monday to return to the Stanley Cup contenders.
Beauchemin won the Cup in 2007 during his first tenure with Anaheim from 2005-09. After leaving for Toronto as a free agent, he returned to Anaheim in a trade in February 2011. He was a mainstay on the Ducks' blue line until 2015, when he left again for Colorado in free agency.
