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.
Connauton (upper body) is projected to be an injured scratch for Tuesday night's road contest against the Kings. As a defenseman fortunate to hit the 15-minute mark in a game when healthy, Connauton has been rendered useless in the fantasy realm, and this latest injury -- which has kept him out for the past five contests -- isn't helping matters. His next chance to return will be Thursday's home tilt with the Red Wings.
Coach Dave Tippett relayed Friday that Connauton (upper body) is considered week-to-week, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Previous reports referred to Connauton as day-to-day, but a return to action for him is evidently not imminent, which paves the way for Anthony DeAngelo to re-enter the Coyotes' blue line mix Friday. With just one helper and eight PIM in 20 games to date, Connauton's fantasy impact in 2016-17 has been minimal.
Connauton (upper body) is considered day-to-day, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. He left Thursday's game early due to the injury. When you consider that Connauton has just one point -- an assist -- in 20 games and now has an injury to worry about, he's entirely safe to avoid in all fantasy formats.
Connauton left Thursday's game in Buffalo with an upper-body injury. The blueliner took a hit from Marcus Foligno early in the third period and headed to the locker room; he won't return. With one point in 19 games, he doesn't really move the fantasy needle, but more information on his status should come out after the game or Friday morning.
