The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded defenseman Keith Aulie to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Carter Ashton.
Pierre LeBrun via twitter: Burke in an email about Ashton: “Size and skill, big body with good wheels.”
Cory Pronman via twitter: “Wow Ashton. That’s a #win and a half for Toronto. Many pro scouts called Ashton Tampa’s best or second best prospect.” … “Upside is ok 2nd line forward very good 3rd liner. Not a tremendous haul, but then again you got him for Aulie.”
Cory Pronman via twitter: “Upside is ok 2nd line forward very good 3rd liner. Not a tremendous haul, but then again you got him for Aulie.”
@leafschatter via twitter: “As mentioned yesterday, Keith Aulie loses his waiver exempt status by end of season…#Leafs would have had 8 D (one too many) waiver exempt”
