I think Connauton should get a 15-20 game try-out when someone gets injured, but that's about it. He's played 2 full seasons in the AHL and has shown improvement from one to the next. He needs to get a feel for the speed and defensive play up here then go back and work on it in the AHL. The sooner he can get some games in the better though.
