A swap of up and coming Defenseman Keith Aulie from TOR for prospect forward Carter Ashton. This trade will take a while to judge as far as who carried the advantage. Some notes:
Keith Aulie – A 17-game, “7” Defenseman who would likely be more in the “4/5” range if he had played the majority of the season. Still, when he played, he averaged over 17 minutes per game, 14 SOG, 16 PIMs and 2 Assists.
Carter Ashton – Drafted 29th overall in the 2009 Entry Draft, he plays 19 Goals and 16 Assists in 35 Games. Most important to TOR, he is 6’3″ and 205 pounds, a Brian Burke-sized forward.
