2010-11: Aubry started off the year strong as a member of the Montreal Juniors before going down with an injury. He played in 35 games, finishing the season with 13 goals and 12 assists for 25 points. Aubry had a strong post-season, participating in 10 games where he scored 5 goals and 1 assist for 6 points.

2011-12: Aubry made his pro hockey debut as a 20-year-old, skating in 62 games for Detroit’s AHL affiliate Grand Rapids. In mostly a lower line role, he scored 5 goals with 11 assists and was minus-six with 39 penalty minutes.  Grand Rapids missed the AHL playoffs; finishing fourth in the North Division.

2012-13: Aubry skated for Detroit AHL affiliate Grand Rapids in his second pro season. Playing in a lower line role, he scored 4 goals with 8 assists and was -2 with 60 penalty minutes in 64 games. The Griffins finished first in the Midwest Division and captured the Calder Cup championship. Aubry played in 14 of 24 playoff games and was +3 with 1 assist.

2013-14: Aubry split his third pro season between the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and Toledo in the ECHL.  He scored 2 goals with 2 assists and was -1 with 16 penalty minutes in 38 regular season games for the Griffins. Grand Rapids finished second in the Midwest Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Aubry did not appear in any playoff games. He played 18 ECHL regular season games with Toledo, scoring 7 goals with 8 assists, and was -4 with 10 penalty minutes. The Walleye missed the ECHL playoffs, finishing last in the North Division.

2014-15: Aubry returned to Grand Rapids for his fourth season with the Griffins. Topping his previous career-highs in games played, assists and plus/minus, he scored 5 goals with 11 assists and was +9 with 52 penalty minutes in 67 regular season games. The Griffins finished first in the Midwest Division and reached the Western Conference finals against Utica. Aubry scored 3 goals and was +2 with 16 penalty minutes in 16 playoff games. He was re-signed by Detroit to a one-year contract as a restricted free agent in July 2015.

2015-16: Aubry skated for the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins in his fifth pro season. He scored 12 goals with 17 assists and was +8 with 87 penalty minutes in 75 regular season games. The Griffins finished fourth in the Central Division, reaching the AHL playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Talent Analysis

Aubry is a big player with the ideal frame for a power forward. He is a solid two-way presence. Drafted based on a skill set that suggested he would one day dominate on the ice, he has developed into more of a support player during his minor league career.  Crashing the net and blocking shots with equal enthusiasm, he has not proven to be much of a scoring forward, but the rest of the package suggests he can be valuable in a lower line role.

Future

Aubry skated for the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins in 2015-16. After five seasons in the Detroit organization, he is a veteran leader for the Griffins but has yet appear in an NHL game. His willingness to do all the hard jobs necessary to help his team win suggests some value as a lower line forward but it is equally likely that Aubry plays out his career at the minor pro level.

The long-discussed rebuild in Detroit has yet to come and the Red Wings scouting staff is doing their best to make sure that no such rebuild has to take place.

With recent graduations to the NHL like Teemu Pulkkinen and Dylan Larkin – the latter of whom leads all NHL rookies in goals with 11 – there are still several prospects plying their trade at the AHL level looking to be the next call-up to help keep the Red Wings going.

In the past, the Detroit Red Wings found long-term success in partial thanks to a scouting department that unearthed gems like Sergei Fedorov, Nicklas Lidstrom, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk past the draft’s first round. That trend has continued in recent years. Tomas Tatar, a second-round pick in 2009, burst onto the scene in 2014-15 with a 29-goal season while Gustav Nyquist, a fourth-round pick in 2008, posted consecutive seasons of 28 and 27 goals.

As with seemingly every Detroit Red Wings draft class, five years is almost too early to evaluate its success; that said, the Red Wings 2010 draft may have been the organization’s most successful since 2005, when the team took long-term contributors Justin Abdelkader, Jakub Kindl and Darren Helm.

It has been a gradual change, but the draft picks that have been laying in wait for the Detroit Red Wings have started to make their impact on the team’s NHL roster. As some graduate to the NHL others have filled their spots in the AHL, leaving Detroit’s system very top-heavy with prospects playing professionally.
