Beauchemin blocked six shots and extended his assist streak to three games Wednesday night in a 3-0 win over the Ducks. The fearless Beauchemin has redirected a league-leading 219 shots this season. He's also doing a fine job of staying patient and moving the puck for scores, based on how the 35-year-old has 24 assists, and is just two shy of tying a career high in that category. Oh, and we'd be remiss to leave out how the ice hog's grabbing 2:18 on the power play this season, his first with the Avs. Beauchemin is a strong fantasy play in several formats.
Beauchemin netted a goal, a plus-1 rating and a blocked shot in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks. The 35-year-old defenseman is now on a two-game point streak, while simultaneously having ended a seven-game scoring drought. Beauchemin's got 26 points on the season, which is his highest total since his 2009-10 campaign with Toronto. Despite doing better than he has in recent years, he doesn't have fantasy value to add to your team.
Beauchemin scored a goal, and added an assist in Wednesday's win over the Sabres, finishing with a plus-2 rating in 25:46 of ice time. The veteran defenseman had recorded just one point in nine previous January contests, but rekindled some of his early-season offensive magic in this one. Beauchemin's on pace for 41 points this season, but it's unlikely that the 35-year-old will be able to sustain that level of production considering he hasn't topped 30 points since the 2005-06 campaign.
Beauchemin netted a pair of goals in Thursday's win over the Islanders. Age isn't slowing down the veteran blueliner, who fired five shots on goal in a whopping 28:31 of ice time Thursday. Beauchemin has collected six points in his last five games and is up five goals and 19 points in 33 games on the year. Considering the heavy minutes he's logging and his second-unit power-play role, Beauchemin could be worth looking at right now. On pace for a career-high offensive season at the age of 35? What a story.
Beauchemin scored his third goal of the season and had an assist in a whopping season-high 29:00 of ice time in Saturday's win over the Predators. What a monstrous showing from Beauchemin, who now has points in back-to-back games. The veteran struck on the power play Saturday and has put together 16 points in 30 games on the year. Given his heavy workload and second-unit power-play time, Beauchemin makes for a reliable fantasy option in deeper formats.
