Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Traveling with team

Connauton (lower body) will join the team for their six-game road trip, Craig Morgan of AZ Sports reports.

While Connauton has yet to be cleared, his inclusion on the trip seems to indicate he will be available to return soon. The 26-year-old saw action in 65 games last season split between the Blue Jackets and the Coyotes in which he garnered 17 points and 60 PIM. Once healthy, Connauton will likely replace Jakob Chychrun in Arizona's third defensive pairing.
