Playing career[edit]

It would be the final season Findlay played collegiate hockey, as the school dropped the program.[1] MacAulay transferred to the University of Vermont to finish his playing career, where he became a mainstay on the Catamount blue line, appearing in 109 games, totaling 53 points (11 goals, 42 assists) from 2004-07.

Upon graduation, MacAulay signed with the Fresno Falcons of the ECHL. He has gone on to play at various levels of minor league hockey in the United States, suiting up for the Stockton Thunder also of the ECHL, while playing for four American Hockey League teams; Rockford IceHogs, Portland Pirates, San Antonio Rampage, and Norfolk Admirals.

MacAulay headed to Croatia, in 2009-10 signing with KHL Medveščak, where he has spent the last three seasons with the club that began participation in the Austrian Hockey League in 2009-10. The defenseman joined the squad during their run to the league finals, appearing in seven games. In 2010-11, his first full season with the club, MacAulay totaled five goals, and 11 assists (16 points). The following season, MacAulay notched 14 points (two goals, 12 assists), helping Medvescak Zagreb to a league semi-finals appearance.
