Connauton (upper body) remains week-to-week, effectively ruling him out for the Coyotes' next four outings at least, Sarah McLellan of The Arizona Republic reports.

Due to a variety of injuries -- as well as being a frequent healthy scratch -- Connauton has appeared in a mere 20 contests in which he has registered a lone assist, eight PIM, and 15 blocked shots. Given his lack of fantasy value, the blueliner's absence is unlikely to be noticed by many owners.
