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.

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.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
