News: Aulie was released from his professional tryout contract on Sunday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Impact: Aulie signed a PTO agreement with the Coyotes at the beginning of September, but didn't do enough to secure a spot on the final roster. He spent the 2014-15 season with the Oilers, playing in just 31 games, but he'll now head back to the open market in search for another NHL look.

News: Aulie signed a professional tryout contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday.
Impact: Aulie will audition for a role on the Coyotes' third defensive pair or as a seventh defenseman during training camp, with his standing on the roster ultimately dictated by how well younger options like Klas Dahlbeck, Connor Murphy, and Brandon Gormley perform in training camp. The 26-year-old had difficulty earning ice time on an Oilers squad short on quality defenders last season, skating in only 31 games and providing just one point.
