Connauton picked up an assist and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Ducks. Connauton is up to eight points in 45 games this season, as well as 84 hits and 69 blocks. Playing time has been inconsistent for the defender, as he was scratched six out of 14 times in February. He only gets third-pairing minutes, and while he's been known to go on a point binge or two a season, he's typically safe to avoid in fantasy circles.
Connauton (lower body) will serve as a healthy scratch versus San Jose on Wednesday, NHL.com reports. Connauton was originally sitting out due to a lower-body injury, yet despite being healthy again, can't seem to crack the lineup. In 33 appearances this season, the Edmonton native is averaging 18:56 of ice time in which he tallied five helpers, 52 shots and 55 blocks. If Connauton does crack the lineup at some point, it will likely come at the expense of Jordan Oesterle.
Connauton (lower body) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Calgary. Connauton will miss his fifth consecutive game but should be ready to return any day. His next chance to play comes Wednesday when the Coyotes host San Jose. An official decision on his status for that contest will hopefully come in the next couple of days.
Connauton (lower body) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Oilers. Connauton will be on the shelf for his fourth straight game, although he's been practicing since Wednesday. His absence from the lineup won't shake up the fantasy realm since Connauton has just five assists in 33 games. The 28-year-old's next opportunity to suit up will be Sunday versus the Flames.
Connauton (lower body) will not play Thursday night against the Canucks, Craig Morgan of The Athletic repots. Connauton reportedly practiced Wednesday, signaling that he may not be far away from a return. Of course, even in a healthy state, the blueliner wouldn't be a viable option as the owner of five points (all assists) through 33 games this season.
