Lightning, Aulie agree to two-way pact

The Tampa Bay Lightning signed defenseman Keith Aulie to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Saturday.

Aulie, who would have been an restricted free agent Sunday, had no goals and three points in 36 NHL games this past season split between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Lightning. Tampa Bay acquired the 23-year-old defenseman from Toronto for forward Carter Ashton in February.

A fourth-round pick by Calgary in 2007, Aulie was part of the deal that sent Dion Phanuef from the Flames to Toronto.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
