Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Earns assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton posted an assist and four PIM in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Stars in Game 3.

Connauton entered the lineup for an injured Erik Johnson (undisclosed), and the former was able to make a contribution. The assist was a big one -- Connauton set up Nazem Kadri for what would be the game-winning goal. Prior to Monday's Game 2, Connauton had not played in a playoff game since 2013-14 with the Stars. He had no points and four shots on goal in four regular-season appearances this year.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Back in NHL during stoppage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton posted zero points, a minus-2 rating and four shots in four NHL games this season prior to the league stoppage in March.

It's unfortunate for the entire league and its fans that the NHL had to suspend the season, but it's probably particularly hard on Connauton, who was just promoted back to the Avalanche in early March. Connauton played in three games prior to the stoppage and posted two shots and a minus-2 rating. The 30-year-old has one goal and eight points with a minus-4 rating in his last 54 NHL games.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Promoted to big squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche added Connauton from AHL Colorado on Thursday.

Connauton should provide some depth on the back end for an Avs club set to embark on a three-game road trip beginning Friday in Vancouver. Colorado has six other healthy defensemen, so there's still a decent chance Connauton won't draw in.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton was assigned to AHL Colorado on Saturday.

Connauton was held pointless in his only appearance with the Avalanche, but he was able to dish out three hits and block a shot during his lone appearance. The 29-year-old returns to the AHL level where he has three assists in 11 games in 2019-20.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Back with Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton has been recalled from AHL Colorado, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Connauton was demoted to AHL Colorado on Oct. 16 to afford a roster spot to J.T Compher, who was returning from injury. The 29-year-old defenseman may dress for the Avalanche, but Connauton isn't worthy of fantasy consideration. He has collected three assists in 11 contests at the AHL level.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton has been demoted to AHL Colorado, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Connauton has spent each game with the Avalanche in the press box, but he'll now return to the AHL, likely as a corresponding move to J.T. Compher's (lower body) activation from injured reserve. Connauton played 50 games for the Coyotes last season, so there's a chance he'll work his way back into the mix with Colorado at a later date.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Avalanche recalled Connauton from AHL Colorado on Tuesday.

Colorado only had six healthy blueliners on its roster prior to Connauton's promotion, so he'll round out the team's depth on the back end for the foreseeable future. The 29-year-old has gone scoreless in two AHL appearances this season.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton was sent down to AHL Colorado on Sunday.

Connauton will require waivers to join the AHL club but he should clear. The 29-year-old defenseman didn't have a spot on the Avalanche's deep blue line but with 310 career NHL games, he'll provide some nice depth in case of injury.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton (face) will make his preseason debut Saturday against Minnesota.

Connauton is still recovering from a facial fracture, so he'll wear a full shield for the foreseeable future, but it shouldn't hinder his effectiveness. The 29-year-old, who tallied eight points in 50 games with Arizona last season, is expected to fill in as a bottom-pairing defender until Ian Cole (hip) is cleared to play.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Cleared for contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton (face) took full contact during Friday's practice.

Connauton had been wearing a non-contact sweater prior to Friday's practice. Now that he's been cleared for contact, he's likely just a few practices away from getting the green light to rejoin the lineup for a preseason contest. The 29-year-old, who notched eight points in 50 games with the Coyotes last campaign, is expected to take on a bottom-pairing role until Ian Cole (hip) is ready to return.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Slowed by facial fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton (face) wore a non-contact jersey during Friday's practice, NHL.com's Rick Sadowski reports.

Connauton suffered a fractured cheekbone after taking a puck to the face 10 days ago, so he'll likely be eased into action during training camp, but his injury shouldn't impact his availability for Colorado's Opening night matchup with Calgary. The 29-year-old will be a serviceable bottom-pairing defender for the Avalanche until Ian Cole (hip) is cleared to return, but he won't be a viable fantasy option.

Avalanche's Kevin Connauton: Traded to Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Coyotes traded Connauton to the Avalanche in exchange for Carl Soderberg and a 2020 third-round pick Tuesday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Connauton was likely going to be the odd-man-out on Arizona's blue line this season, so moving him for a center that just racked up 23 goals and 49 points in 82 games with Colorado last season makes a ton of sense. However, the Avalanche are also already pretty deep at defense, so Connauton may have to settle for a rotational role with his new club anyway. Either way, the 29-year-old only notched eight points in 50 games last campaign, so there's really no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his status.

Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Blocks four shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Will be scratched Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: No go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

January 12, 2019 09:56 PM
Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

January 10, 2019 04:36 PM
Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Not quite ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

January 6, 2019 11:24 AM
Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton (lower body) won't suit up for Sunday's game versus the Rangers, NHL.com reports.

Connauton will be on the shelf for a second consecutive game. Fantasy owners shouldn't be dismayed by this fact since the 28-year-old has zero goals and five helpers in 33 games, although his phyiscal play and knack for blocking shots will be missed on the Coyotes' blue line.

Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton is dealing with a lower-body injury that will cause him to miss Friday's clash with New Jersey, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Considering Connauton has just five assists in 33 games this season, his absence will likely go unnoticed by the majority of fantasy owners. The blueliner has seen an uptick in ice time this year (18:56 per game compared to 15:11 in 2017-18), but that hasn't translated into offensive production.

November 5, 2018 09:01 PM
Coyotes' Kevin Connauton: Playing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton (illness) will be in the lineup for Monday's showdown with Philadelphia.

Connauton missed the last two games with flu-like symptoms and will suit up for the first time since Oct. 27. The 6-foot-2 blueliner is seeing a career-high 18:54 of ice time per game this season but has just two assists to show for it.
