Keith Aulie (born June 11, 1989) is a former Canadian ice hockey player, having played his final year in the NHL with the Edmonton Oilers during the 2014-2015 season. Drafted 116th overall by Calgary Flames in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Aulie returned to the Western Hockey League (WHL) for two more seasons, serving as the Brandon Wheat Kings captain in his final year. His tenure lasted 43 games with the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League (AHL), as Calgary included him in the package that saw Dion Phaneuf become a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Aulie split the 2010-11 season with the Maple Leafs and their AHL affiliate, appearing in 40 NHL games and registering two goals. In the subsequent season, he was limited to just 17 games with Toronto before he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for forward Anson Carter. He finished the season with Tampa Bay, playing in 19 games and picking up one assist. He returned for two more seasons with the Lightning, playing 60 games during that span and amassing two goals and six assists.

Aiming for a more prominent role in the NHL, Aulie signed a one-year contract with the Oilers. He played just 31 games with Edmonton, registering one assist and 66 penalty minutes. It was his final taste of NHL action, as he played the majority of the next three seasons in the AHL and across several European leagues. Aulie’s final three seasons in the sport were spent in Germany, playing for EHC München of the Deutsche Hockey League. He served as an alternate captain in the final two seasons and captured the DEL Championship in 2018.
