François Beauchemin did not play in the last season, as his team was not able to play due to Covid-19. According to team manager Sébastien Reuille, he is, however, in a "good physical condition" and everything they heard about "his work ethic is positive."
Beauchemin last played for the Brampton Beast. The ECHL team does, however, no longer exist, as it had to cease operations in February 2021 due to Covid-19. In 40 games for the Beast in the 2019-20 season, the Canadian recorded 21 goals and 16 assists.
