Keith Aucoin signs two-way contract with Leafs

Guess I should put this here:

Keith Aucoin is now Maple Leafs and not with the Capitals anymore. Played so long there I tough it was a given. My bad

Should be good for the Marlies.  His last 4 AHL seasons:

70 GP, 96 pts
72 GP, 106 pts
53 GP, 72 pts
43 GP, 70 pts

Good signing... He's a terrific AHL player.

Why is he not playing in the NHL, with stats like that? Is he just one of those guys that can't play in the show, but are incredible AHL players?

He appears to be just that.

Some guys just don't get fair shakes though.  He has 37 points in 102 career NHL games and is a +7.  That's a big addition to the Marlies.  They haven't had one of those top AHL players on their roster.

That and the fact he's a 5'9", 187 lbs centre. He's had a couple extended looks in the NHL, and brought some production, but not enough else to his game to earn a full time spot.

I hadn't even checked his size. He's the AHL version of Justin Azevedo.

Like to see the contract but that seems like a decent depth signing on the surface.

$650K, 1 year, 2-way deal. $350K in the A.

Yeah, that's a no brainer to me.

That's where the Leafs can flex their muscles, by giving a player like this money in the AHL.

Aucoin AHL numbers are insane: 777 pts (223+554) in 673 games (that´s 1.15 pts per game) and in the AHL playoffs 82 pts (14+68) in 83 games.

I wonder if they will try him between Lupul and Kessel too at camp, not only Kadri, JVR, Colborne. Aucoin is the underdog in this race, I wish he could translate his A success to the big league.
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

Burke has given up his Stanley Cup dreams in favour of Calder Cup glory. Go Marlies!
