The Avalanche have acquired Kevin Connauton and a 2020 third-round pick from the Coyotes for Carl Soderberg.
Connauton appeared in 50 games with Arizona last season, posting just one goal and seven assists (eight points). The blueline is crowded right now in Colorado, so look for Connauton to serve as the No.6/7 defenseman for most of the 2020 campaign.
Connauton will draw into the Arizona lineup on Friday.
Connauton (undisclosed) is not expected to play on Friday.
Connauton is a little banged up and is not expected to play Friday vs. the Devils. Connauton will be replaced by Alex Goligoski, who returns after a one-game absence with an illness.
Connauton (illness) will be a game-time decision on Monday.
Connauton missed the last two games with an illness, but is expected to return to the Coyotes lineup on Monday. Connauton has two assists and 24 shots in 10 goals this season.

The Blue Jackets have claimed Kevin Connauton off of waivers from Dallas.
Connauton, 24, was Vancouver’s third pick, 83rd overall, in the 2009 NHL Draft. He has registered one goal and nine assists for 10 points with 22 penalty minutes in 44 career NHL games, all during the past two seasons with the Stars. He has collected 0-2-2 with six penalty minutes and is +4 in eight games this season.
Kevin Connauton will get the nod on defense tonight as the Stars play their second game without Stephane Robidas, who will be out 4-6 months with a leg fracture. This will be Connauton’s second game with the Stars this season.
“He’s really worked hard in practices,” said Ruff. “In his first game, early on he was OK and as the game went on he got better. He skates well, he shoots the puck well and he knows our system really well. I told him the other day that I am going to play him, so it’s up to him to play well now.” Jamie Oleksiak, who played on defense in Sunday’s game against Edmonton, will be a healthy scratch
Stars coach Lindy Ruff said he'll skate both Jamie Oleksiak and Kevin Connauton in warm-ups, and then decide who plays vs. Edmonton.
Connauton, 23, made his NHL debut with the Stars this season, he played 16:05 with a plus-2 rating. If he draws in tonight it would be just his second NHL game after playing 221 games in the AHL since 2010. In that span he had 33 goals and 55 assists (88 points).
