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.
