Beauchemin is regularily the Leafs top minute guy, and it increased from about 23/night to 25/night when Phaneuf went down. When healthy, they have for the most part had the ice time pretty even amongst the top 4 with each ranging between 22:30 and 24:00 in a non-overtime game. Beauchemin-Phaneuf usually draws the top defensive matchup when they do line-match; which isn't every night.
This is why he's averaged 23:59 over the season while Kaberle is at 23:01, Phaneuf at 23:00, and Schenn at 22:22.
