The Edmonton Oilers have signed Keith Aulie to a one-year deal.

Aulie had an assist in 15 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning last season. He's just 25 years old, but we doubt he'll ever be much more than a third-pairing defenseman.

He has missed the last 15 games with a broken hand, but he doesn't feel any pain in it. "It's one of those injuries when you're waiting for the doctor to say it's healthy," Aulie said. "It's one of those things where it feels great but it's not quite healed yet. You just got to give it time."

Keith Aulie has suited up in just two games for Tampa Bay this season.

"It's not easy," Aulie said Wednesday. "It's something you don't want to go through. But ... all you can control is what you do on the ice. You work hard every day and hope you're bringing something that they want." He has seen less action than rookie defenders Andrej Sustr and Mark Barberio. Aulie and Barberio would have to clear waivers if sent down, so they likely aren't going anywhere.
