Connauton (upper body) is likely to make his comeback against the Kings on Sunday. The defenseman has missed the last 15 games after getting injured against Buffalo on March 2, so it could take him a bit to get back to full speed. That said, he's only got a single point in 20 games this year, so he has very limited fantasy value.
Connauton (upper body) is now "real close" to rejoining the lineup, per Coyotes coach Dave Tippett, Sarah McLellan of The Arizona Republic reports. Still, this news effectively rules him out for Wednesday's home tilt with the Blues. The low-end blueliner evidently will miss his 14th straight contest. He's not fantasy relevant as the owner of a single point and a minus-3 rating through 20 games.
Connauton (upper body) is close to returning to game action, Sarah McClellan of The Arizona Republic reports. Connauton doesn't provide much in the way of offense when healthy, and he doesn't contribute much in terms of penalty minutes or blocked shots either. He can be left to the waiver wire in most pools at this juncture.
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.
