Kevin Connauton played forward Saturday as the Coyotes were down to 11 forwards.

Martin Hanzal and Jordan Martinook were hurt Friday and while the Coyotes recalled Laurent Dauphin, they were still down a man. Enter defenseman Connauton. "I give Kevin Connauton a ton of credit," coach Dave Tippett said. "He’s a left defenseman that played right wing today. He did a heck of a job. Players are happy for him. He got in there, banged around, got a shot on goal, a couple hits. Sometimes you get in adversity like this, guys dig in hard. Guys are frustrated in there. They’re trying hard. We just have to find ways to get on top of it. We got some breaks tonight, and it went the right way." Connauton played 7:06 and had three hits.
