Aho, 25, is coming off a 67 point (36g, 31a) campaign for the Hurricanes. Carolina is looking to lock him up long-term before he becomes an unrestricted free agent next summer.
Sebastian Aho likely to re-sign with the Carolina Hurricanes
Elliotte Friedman one of the few NHL Analysts still working this offseason was on the NHL Network and reports that Sebastian Aho and the Carolina Hurricanes are close to a long-term contract extension.
Friedman went on to say in his Aho TV hit that he believes the contract will be 8 years at a Hurricanes salary cap hit of $9.5 million/year.
The reason there is a holdup on the Aho contract is the Canes are still trying to make a trade for Erik Karlsson and possibly signing Vladimir Tarasenko.
