News: Aulie wasn't extended a qualifying offer Monday by the Oilers and will become an unrestricted free agent, Jason Gregor of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Impact: After signing with the Oilers last summer, Aulie ended up only appearing in 31 games, as the coaching staff typically opted to make him a healthy scratch. The fact that Aulie struggled to see the ice on one of the league's poorest defensive units doesn't bode well for his chances of earning a meaningful role with any other team.
