By the Numbers: Sebastian Aho’s Ascension

By the Numbers: Sebastian Aho’s Ascension

Sebastian Aho has built upon a strong rookie season with an outstanding sophomore campaign, but what kind of company is he keeping around the NHL? We’re beginning to get to the point in young Sebastian Aho’s NHL career where he isn’t all that much of a secret anymore. As a rookie at age 19, the Finn posted 24 goals and 25 assists in 82 games. A year later, he’s at 20 goals and 23 assists after just 53 games. He’s a lock to reach the 50 point mark in his second season, and could easily push toward 60 if all goes right. His rate production is looking stellar as well. When compared...

Recap and Ranker: Energetic Hurricanes Throttle Canucks, 4-1

Recap and Ranker: Energetic Hurricanes Throttle Canucks, 4-1

Who said anything about scoring problems? If the powers that be for the Carolina Hurricanes wanted to send a message to their players by waiving forwards Marcus Kruger and Josh Jooris on Thursday, you can consider that message received. Three first period goals from Brett Pesce, Phil Di Giuseppe, and Sebastian Aho got the Hurricanes going quickly and gave them a lead they would not relinquish. The Hurricanes had been sputtering around aimlessly for the last three games, but thanks to some simultaneous incompetence from some of their division rivals and fellow wild card hopefuls, they...

About Last Night: Aho Returns and Skinner Sparks

About Last Night: Aho Returns and Skinner Sparks

Sebastian Aho returns to score the Canes’ first goal of the night as the team followed Jeff Skinner's resiliency with the puck. Tuesday was a night where the Carolina Hurricanes needed points against an Eastern Conference bottom-feder to stay afloat in the playoff race. Typically, they botch the opportunity to get a good start after the All Star break. However, this time, they got the production they needed from important players and started off their eight-game homestand on the right foot. It was a stalemate most of the way through the first period with both teams trading opportunities...

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Ottawa Senators: Lineups and Game Discussion

Seabass swims his way back into the lineup tonight as Carolina kicks off the second half of the season. The medicine of time, afforded by the All-Star Break, has helped Sebastian Aho get game-ready for tonight’s home test against Ottawa. Aho will return to the top line, knocking Brock McGinn out as he falls...to the fourth line? Bold move. Elias Lindholm will stay as a winger on the top line. He replaced Aho on the line after the Finn’s injury against Calgary, quickly scoring two goals. Despite his -2 rating and 4 shots on goal in three games since, Lindholm has provided a physical...
