Leafs Acquire Joffrey Lupul From Ducks for Francois Beauchemin

leafsOur Toronto Maple Leafs have sent defenceman Francois Beauchemin to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward Joffrey Lupul, defenceman Jake Gardiner and a conditional Ducks fourth-round pick in 2012.

Lupul, 27, has five goals and eight assists in 26 games with the Ducks this season. The Alberta native was originally Anaheim’s first choice, seventh overall, in the 2002 Entry Draft. He has 117 goals and 121 assists for 238 points in 421 career NHL games with the Ducks, Oilers and the Flyers.

Join me in a trip down memory lane as we remember the day Francois Beauchemin signed with the Maple Leafs, way back in July of 2009.

My favourite line of that entry is the last one: "Clearly, Kaberle has played his last game for the Leafs."

Beauchemin said he never really wanted to leave Anaheim. Funny, because the fans of Toronto didn't really want him to leave either.
