He's being used less than Brian Lee, on a team that's fairly thin on the blueline, and who's main weakness is defensive play... and he's averaging 12:50 TOI/G and has had a cup of coffee on the PK... and you wish we had him?

Ashton isn't in the NHL, but he looks like he can be a pretty solid two-way 3rd liner. It's been three years since Aulie has shown any ability to play in the NHL at a decent level.
He said he thought Aulie could thrive in RC's defensive minded system which i agree with. Not a run and gun system...

I don't think Ashton will turn into much of anything.
