It appears Kevin Connauton (undisclosed) won't play tonight against the Anaheim Ducks.

Kevin Connauton posted a goal with an assist and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 4-1 win in Calgary.

Connauton has just 11 goals with 21 points this season, but he has buried four goals with six points and a plus-8 rating over his past five contests. While it might be too late for the rearguard to help those in standard fantasy pools, he is a player to ride hard in DFS until he starts to cool off a bit. He comes with a low-end price tag and high production lately.

Kevin Connauton found the back of the net in Arizona's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The rearguard also notched his ninth goal of the season to mark a career high, tying his nine goals set during the 2014-15 campaign with the Blue Jackets.

Kevin Connauton opened the scoring midway through the first period with his fifth goal of the season Tuesday at San Jose.

Connauton finished with a plus-1 rating and four hits over his 14:38 of ice time. He has managed just five goals and 12 points this season, but four goals and six points with a plus-5 rating have come in the month of February over his past seven outings. If you're desperate for rearguard help in deeper fantasy pools, he is worth a look while running hot. He is particularly attractive as a low-cost DFS option right now.

Kevin Connauton has been an offensive threat of late.

Connauton was held off the scoresheet on Saturday but the defenseman had three goals in the previous four contests after scoring only once in 42 games to start the season. He has 10 points in 47 games this season. "I think in the last three of four weeks, he’s strung some consistent games together," coach Rick Tocchet said. "If he can do that, he can become a really good regular in the league. But it takes a lot of hard work. It takes a lot of smarts and it takes a lot of passion. He has that in his game and in his mentality, but he just needs to be more consistent."
