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
