TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded forward Carter Ashton to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for defenseman Keith Aulis.
Aulie appeared in 17 games for the Maple Leafs this season and had two assists. In 57 games over two NHL seasons, the 22-year-old has two goals and four career points.
Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman announced the deal before Monday's NHL trade deadline. In other moves, Tampa Bay acquired defenseman Mike Commodore from Detroit in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2013 and obtained defenseman Brian Lee from Ottawa in a trade that sent defenseman Matt Gilroy to the Senators.
