Top Sebastian Aho News

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: One goal in last 21 games

    Aho has gone seven games without a goal and has only one assist in his last 21 contests.

    On the season, Aho has four goals, eight assists and a plus-one rating in 48 games. He's currently serving as the Islanders' sixth defenseman, but if the team adds a blueliner prior to the trade deadline, Aho could be in danger of losing playing time.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Opens scoring in overtime loss

    Aho scored a goal on three shots and blocked two shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals.

    Aho struck quickly, scoring at 4:24 of the first period. This was the defenseman's first point in 13 contests since the end of his three-game point streak in December. The 26-year-old fills a bottom-four role on the Islanders' blue line, where he's amassed four goals, five helpers, 54 shots on net, 37 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through 41 appearances this season.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Could see time on the power play

    Aho was working on the second power-play unit during practice Monday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Coach Lane Lambert has scrambled his power-play lines, as the team is a woeful 1-for-30 over the last 10 games on the power play. His options are limited somewhat with forwards Kyle Palmieri (upper body) and Oliver Wahlstrom (lower body), both of whom play on the power play, on injured reserve. Aho has worked with Pulock on the left side of the second power-play unit, but it's unknown which would play or if Lambert will continue to make changes in-game should the power-play continue to struggle.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: On modest three-game point streak

    Aho registered an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Aho has a modest three-game point streak (one goal, two assists), and he's gone plus-5 in that span. The 26-year-old set up a Hudson Fasching go-ahead tally in the second period Saturday. Aho is at three goals, five helpers, 37 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 28 contests while often logging bottom-four minutes, though he's seen more time with Adam Pelech (upper body) sidelined.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Breaks scoreless streak

    Aho registered an assist, his first point in nine games, in Tuesday's loss to the Bruins.

    Aho has been a mainstay in the lineup for the majority of the season, and that won't change anytime soon due to the injury to Adam Pelech (head). When Pelech is ready to return, assuming there are no other injuries to the defensive corps, it's either Robin Salo or Aho who will likely head to the bench.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Scores in Friday's loss

    Aho scored a goal on four shots and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    The third pairing of Aho and Noah Dobson combined for two of the Islanders' four tallies in the contest. The goal was Aho's third of the season, and he's picked up points in each of the last two games after going nine straight outings without a point. The 26-year-old Swede has seven points, 36 shots on net, a plus-4 rating, 16 blocked shots and 12 hits through 27 games this season. While he's been a consistent presence in the Islanders' lineup, fantasy managers can likely find more production on the waiver wire.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Scoreless in four straight

    Aho hasn't registered a point and has posted minus-2 rating over his last four games.

    Aho has been a solid contributor for the Islanders this season. He has two goals, three assists, and a minus-1 rating in 21 games. It's fair to wonder, however, if the team will eventually want to play Robin Salo in Aho's spot. Salo only lost the job because he had options left and could be sent down. Salo has been a healthy scratch since being recalled, but it may only be a matter of time until Salo gets to play again, especially with the Isles struggling to score goals at the moment.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Scores goal

    Aho notched his second goal of the season as the Islanders shut out the Oilers 3-0 on Wednesday.

    Aho was supposed to be the extra defender for the Islanders this season, but a roster crunch that forced the team to send Robin Salo to the AHL gave Aho a chance to play, and he has taken advantage of it. Aho has two goals and three assists in 17 games this season, along with a rating of plus-1. Those numbers aren't eye-popping, but they are enough to keep Aho in the lineup over Salo for the time being.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: In the lineup for 16 straight

    Aho made his 16th appearance in the lineup in the victory over the Maple Leafs on Monday.

    Aho was initially slated to be the emergency defender for the team this season. He was only going to play if there was an injury or if one of his fellow blueliners needed a rest. Aho got that chance once Robin Salo was sent down to the AHL due to roster issues. Salo is back with the team, but Aho has remained in the lineup. His numbers are unimpressive as he only has one goal, three assists, eight hits, seven blocked shots, and zero PIMs in those 16 games, but coach Lane Lambert must like what he has seen.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Gets on scoresheet Monday

    Aho scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

    Aho tallied his first goal and point of the season on a pass from Mathew Barzal in the first period. Part of Aho's slow start could be attributed to him missing the first four games of the campaign with an upper-body injury. He's played in all nine contests since he returned, registering 12 shots on net, a minus-3 rating, three hits and three blocked shots. He had 12 points in 36 outings last year, so there's a little more scoring potential here, but he's safe to leave on the waiver wire until he shows it.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Yet to register a point

    Aho has yet to register a point in seven games this season.

    Aho was expected to be the extra defenseman for the team this season, but a roster crunch forced the Isles to send Robin Salo to the AHL. Salo has been recalled, but with the team currently riding a five-game winning streak, coach Lane Lambert doesn't seem to want to fix what isn't broken.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Removed from IR

    Aho (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    This paves the way for Aho to make his season debut Saturday night against Tampa Bay after he was moved to the IR list a week ago. Aho left the ice early at the team's optional morning skate, which indicates that he will be in the lineup.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Full participant in practice

    Aho (upper body) was able to practice with the Islanders on Monday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho was placed on injured reserve prior to the game Saturday so that the team could open up a roster spot to activate Cal Clutterbuck. Coach Lane Lambert stated Monday that Aho is considered to be day-to-day. The bigger problem for Aho and his eventual activation to the roster is that the team will need to clear another roster spot, and there is no obvious choice for the team right now.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Goes on IR

    Aho (upper body) was placed on injured reserve by the Islanders on Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho practiced during the morning skate and stayed out after practice with the extras. He was a healthy scratch Thursday.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Will be extra defender

    Aho will start the season as the seventh defenseman for the Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho lost the last starting spot on defense to Robin Salo. Aho was also the seventh defender for most of last season. There is a chance Aho could play in the season opener Thursday against the Panthers if Scott Mayfield (Illness) is unable to go. Aho re-signed with the Islanders this past July for two years and $1.65 million.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Could face legal trouble

    Aho was caught with a 0.03 blood alcohol content, which is 0.01 over the legal limit in Sweden.

    It's unclear what will stem from this in the Swedish legal system, so it's uncertain how much of an effect this will have on Aho's preparation for the 2022-23 season. The defenseman is likely to be in contention for a bottom-pairing role if he is able to participate in training camp and preseason games without issue.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Avoids free agency

    Aho signed a two-year, $1.65 million contract with the Islanders on Saturday, per PuckPedia.

    Aho posted 12 points in 36 games with the Islanders this year, getting his first taste of action as a regular presence in the lineup. He added 34 shots on net, 42 blocked shots and 32 hits. The 26-year-old will likely be in the mix for a bottom-four spot heading into 2022-23, and his new deal is one-way in both seasons, which bodes well for his chances of making the Opening Night roster.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Free agent to be

    Aho will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Aho didn't play much behind veteran defensemen Zdeno Chara and Andy Greene. This lack of playing time means Aho did not play the required number of games to become a restricted free agent and will now be able to sign with any NHL team.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Won't play Friday

    Aho is dealing with an upper-body injury and will not play Friday against visiting Tampa, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho sustained a hard hit against Washington on Thursday, which will force him to miss the season finale Friday. Aho will finish the season having recorded a decent 12 points in limited action (36 games) this season, as he was often made a healthy scratch for extended periods.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Future unclear

    Aho can be an unrestricted free agent after the season, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho will be a Group 6 unrestricted free agent next season, which only applies to players over the age of 25 who have not played 75 or more NHL games. Aho will have at most played 62 at the end of this season. The future for Aho would seem to be with another organization, as the Islanders could have assured themselves of his rights by just playing him 13 more games, but they chose to play Andy Greene ahead of Aho.
