Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: In lineup Tuesday

Connauton (lower body) has been cleared to return for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Connauton will make his season debut in place of Jakob Chychrun on the Yotes' third defensive pairing. The blueliner compiled 17 points last year split between Arizona and Columbus; if he can stay healthy, he stands a good chance of repeating that.
