Connauton was snatched up by the Coyotes on Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. Connauton was writing himself on the scoresheet in his limited opportunities for Columbus, notching a point in each of his last four contests. The blueliner will hope to keep his point streak rolling, despite the change of venue. It remains unclear where the 25-year-old will fit in with Arizona's defensive pairings.
Connauton has been waived by the Blue Jackets, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports. The Blue Jackets gave their blue line a facelift by acquiring Seth Jones from Nashville last Wednesday, leaving Connauton as the odd man out. If he clears waivers, it's quite possible that he could end up with AHL Lake Erie.
