Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Inks one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Panthers on Tuesday.

Connauton only drew into seven games with the Panthers this season, picking up a helper and five shots on goal while averaging 14:13 of ice time per contest. He'll likely once again spend most of his time in the minors in 2021-22.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Brought up from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton was recalled from Florida's taxi squad Monday.

It remains to be seen whether Connauton will suit up for Monday's season finale against the Lightning or simply serve as emergency depth. The 31-year-old blueliner has dressed for six games with Florida this season, dishing an assist while compiling an impressive plus-4 rating.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Shifts to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton was sent to the taxi squad Tuesday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

Connauton logged 13:21 of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Stars, which was his first NHL appearance since March 7. The 31-year-old can continue practicing and traveling with the big club while on the taxi squad.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton was promoted from the taxi squad for Saturday's game against the Stars, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

Connauton got in the lineup Saturday for the first time since March 7. The 31-year-old has one assist in five NHL games this season.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Moves to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton was assigned to the taxi squad Monday.

Fellow defenseman Riley Stillman was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding move. Connauton suited up in five of the last six games, producing an assist, four shots on net and 11 hits.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Shifts to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton was promoted from the taxi squad ahead of Thursday's game versus the Stars.

Connauton could make his season debut in Thursday's game. The 31-year-old suited up in just four NHL games last year, and he didn't post a point in those games. He'll slot into the third pairing if he cracks the lineup.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Snags one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers signed Connauton to a one-year, two-way deal and then placed him on waivers Wednesday, per TSN.

In the highly likely scenario he passes through waivers unclaimed, Connauton will join the Panthers' taxi squad. The 30-year-old blueliner only appeared in four NHL contests with the Avalanche last season, going scoreless over that span.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Florida waived Connauton on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Connauton attended the Panthers' training camp on a professional tryout agreement, and the team has yet to announce a contract signing, but the fact that he was waived Wednesday suggests a deal should be coming soon if it hasn't already been agreed upon. The 30-year-old blueliner will likely start the campaign on Florida's taxi squad.

Panthers' Kevin Connauton: Joining Panthers on PTO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connauton signed a professional tryout agreement with Florida on Sunday, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

Connauton spent most of last season with AHL Colorado, scoring 27 points in 38 games. He also picked up an assist in four games during the postseason. The 30-year-old blueliner will get a chance to fight for a depth spot on the Panthers' roster during training camp.

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.
