The Ducks announced Friday they have placed defenseman Francois Beauchemin on injured reserve with a broken finger and acquired defenseman Eric Brewer in a trade with the Lightning. Beachemin is expected to miss four to six weeks.
Tampa Bay will receive a 2015 third round pick in exchange for Brewer. The Ducks originally acquired the pick in a trade with the Oilers.
Brewer is fifth among Tampa Bay defensemen in average ice time this season. He has played in 17 of the team's 23 games.
