Sebastian wakes up tonight
Carolina’s superstar has been in hibernation for far too long, but it’s time for the Finnish sensation to come through to completely take over a game. It’s time for Sebastian Aho to truly be unleashed on this season. He’s been muted so far this season, so it’s time for a vintage Aho performance where he comes through and dominates as only Sebastian Aho can.
Where Aho needs to improve isn’t putting the puck in the net, it’s just dominating as only Aho can. Watch him take over a game, where every time he steps on the ice the opponent just shudders. When we talk about Aho dominating teams, we know he can do it because we have seen him do it before time and again. It’s not a tall ask for someone who was ranked in the top 20 players in the NHL this summer.
Aho has 5 goals and 7 assists so far this season for 12 points in 12 games, but this has been far from Sebastian at his best. We’ve seen him miss some absolutely golden chances that you would expct a player of Aho’s caliber to have completely taken over a game, yet Aho really hasn’t done that yet this season, and the Hurricanes are still 10-2. There’s a lot of room for Aho to grow here for Carolina.
