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 want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
