  • Flyers' Kevin Connauton: Injured Tuesday

    Connauton (leg) left Tuesday's game versus the Maple Leafs in the third period, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.

    Connauton was hurt in the third period and didn't finish the game. With the Flyers thin on defense with injuries to Rasmus Ristolainen (upper body), Nick Seeler (lower body) and Cam York (lower body), they may need to recall a defenseman. Per Carchidi, Connauton is expected to miss time, which likely rules him out for Thursday's game versus the Canadiens at a minimum.

    Connauton picked up his first goal of the campaign in Thursday's win over Columbus.

    Connauton was injured in Saturday's game versus the Blackhawks, and interim head coach Mike Yeo had no update on his status after the contest, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

    Connauton left the game and did not return after logging three hits, two shots on goal and a blocked shot in 9:57 of ice time. The defenseman has only played a part-time role lately -- he had sat out the last five games as a healthy scratch. More information on the 32-year-old's status should be available prior to Tuesday's game versus the Golden Knights.

  • Flyers' Kevin Connauton: Snagged off waivers

    Connauton was grabbed off the waiver wire by the Flyers from the Panthers on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Connauton has appeared in just 13 games for Florida this season, going pointless with 14 shots, 28 hits and nine blocks while averaging just 12:01 of ice time. The decision to pick up Connauton and add to the organizational depth likely doesn't bode well for the imminent return of Ryan Ellis (lower body).

  • Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Exits early Wednesday

    Connauton (undisclosed) was injured in the third period of Wednesday's game versus the Bruins, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

    The nature of Connauton's injury is unknown, but he didn't finish the contest. The 31-year-old blueliner started the year on injured reserve with a lower-body injury, but it's likely whatever happened Wednesday is a new concern. If he can't play Friday versus the Red Wings, Chase Priskie or Olli Juolevi (undisclosed) could fill in on the bottom pairing.
