Sebastian Aho NHL Trade Rumors October 1, 2018
Carolina would like to sign Sebastian Aho to a long-term contract

Hurricanes must sign Sebastian Aho to a contract -extension

The Score: Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon knows how important Sebastian Aho is to the Carolina Hurricanes.

When asked about the talented young forward, Dundon said getting him signed to a long-term contract is a high priority, according to the Raleigh News & Observer’s Chip Alexander.

Aho said in August that “we’ve been talking about something, but I’ve got nothing to say yet,” seemingly referring to his camp and the club beginning negotiations on a potential extension.

The 21-year-old, who led the Hurricanes in goals (29) and points (65) last season, is entering the final year of his entry-level pact.

Does Matt Duchene want to be part of an Ottawa rebuild?

TSN 1200: Bob McKenzie was on the radio and was asked about the Matt Duchene situation on Ottawa. McKenzie isn’t really sure what’s going on but he doesn’t think there have been any “hard and fast” contract extension talks with the team.

Mckenzie stated, “So I think what Matt Duchene is probably doing – what I would do if I was him – is let’s just start playing some games and let’s see where this goes. Let’s see what the environment is like. Is it going to be as toxic as everybody thinks it’s going to be. Is it going to be as grim, as difficult to win hockey games as everybody seems to think it’s going to be. Or might this team be a little more competitive, and might the mood and the overall atmosphere and environment around that team be a little more positive than people recognize from the outside looking in. And only he knows that for sure.”
