He registered his first NHL shutout on November 7, a 0-0 overtime tie with the Boston Bruins.
When Aubin was younger, he idolized goaltender Curtis Joseph. He was once quoted saying "I really liked him when I was younger," Aubin said. "He was playing for St. Louis, against Toronto, and he had like 70 saves in the playoffs. I'll always remember that, but now I'm playing against him. You never expect to play in the NHL when you're 12 years old.
Now, I'm just entering my time, so it's great."
At first,in the 1999-2000 season, Aubin was often shipped back and forth from Pittsburg to Wilkes-Barre Scranton when Barasso would return from injuries or suspensions. Even though the Pens would offer to cover an airline ticket, Aubin drove six hours one way, back and forth, every time. Why? Because they would not pay for his girlfriend's ticket as well.
