Aulies shipped to Lightning.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded defenseman Keith Aulie to the Tampa Bay Lightning for minor league right wing Carter Ashton.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: So much for GM Brian Burke’s claim he had nothing on the go, but that being said, it appears to be merely a minor league move at this point. Ashton has yet to play in the NHL, while Aulie was up-and-down in the Leafs lineup this year.
