The Anaheim Ducks placed defenseman Francois Beauchemin on the injured reserve list Friday and recalled defenseman Sami Vatanen from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.

Beauchemin is eligible to be activated Wednesday, meaning he will miss at least three games. Beauchemin crashed headfirst into the boards Wednesday night against the New Jersey Devils. Coach Bruce Boudreau did not have any further update Friday morning other than to say that Beauchemin was day-to-day.
