Top Sebastian Aho News

  • 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.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Healthy scratch for seven straight

    Aho has been a healthy scratch for the past seven games and nine of the last 11 for the Islanders.

    Aho can't seem to gain the trust of coach Barry Trotz when it comes to his defensive play. Trotz has elected to keep Andy Greene in the lineup even though his lack of speed has been a problem on defense, and Grant Hutton, who was just recalled from Bridgeport of the AHL, also appears to have surpassed Aho on the depth chart. Aho has one goal, nine assists and a minus-8 rating in 29 games this season.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Good to go Thursday

    Aho (undisclosed) is on the ice for warmups, indicating he'll play Thursday versus the Blue Jackets, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho is expected to return to a third-pairing role even with the Islanders dealing with a carousel of injuries on the blue line. The defenseman missed two contests with the injury.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Won't play Tuesday

    Aho (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday when the Islanders take on the Blue Jackets, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    This will be the second straight game that Aho has missed due to the injury. Aho has yet to light the lamp and has only nine assists in 27 games with a rating of minus-10 this season.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Misses game

    Aho wasn't able to play in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Coach Barry Trotz described Aho as being nicked up. This doesn't seem to be a serious injury, as Trotz also stated post-game that Aho would travel to Columbus when the Islanders play the Blue Jackets on Tuesday. Aho is likely to be a game-time decision for that contest.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Odd man out

    Aho has been a healthy scratch for the past four games.

    Coach Barry Trotz has preferred veteran defensemen like Zdeno Chara and Andy Greene to Aho of late, which isn't likely to change this weekend. The best chance for Aho to play regularly for the rest of the season would be if the Islanders move a defenseman or two before the NHL trade deadline Monday.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Healthy scratch Friday

    Aho was a healthy scratch against the Jets on Friday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The Islanders activated Zdeno Chara (upper body) off of injured reserve Friday, which meant someone had to sit. This is somewhat of a surprise, as Aho had been playing instead of Andy Greene before Friday. This may be a case where the Islanders are trying to showcase Greene (Chara also) as they likely move on from the veteran defensemen before the trade deadline March 21.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Nabs assists in victory

    Aho had an assist, a SOG, two blocked shots, and two penalty minutes as the Islanders defeated the Blue Jackets 6-0 on Thursday.

    Aho has yet to notch a goal this season but does have nine assists in 24 games. He is averaging just over 17 minutes of ice time per game and should continue to play regularly as a bottom pair defender. His ice time could increase if the Islanders were to deal Andy Greene or Zdeno Chara by the March 21 deadline.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Assist streak up to five games

    Aho notched an assist and blocked two shots in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Ducks.

    This is not a recording -- Aho has produced one assist in each of the last five games, and six of his last seven since becoming a regular in the lineup. The 26-year-old's only at eight helpers in 19 contests overall, but the recent success and his steady playing time on the third pairing are encouraging signs. He's added 23 shots on net, 21 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Serves another helper

    Aho logged an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Kings.

    Aho's hot run of offense continued Saturday -- he's now picked up one assist in five of his last six games. The Swedish blueliner's strong play has gone a long way to cementing his third-pairing role. He could bump up to the second pairing if Zdeno Chara (undisclosed) can't play Sunday versus the Ducks. Aho has seven assists, 21 shots on net, 19 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating in 18 contests overall.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Offers assist in shootout loss

    Aho logged an assist and two hits in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks.

    Aho continues to be a strong contributor on offense lately with foru assists in his last five games. He's added six blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in that span. The defenseman's place in the lineup isn't secure, and he's only seeing third-pairing minutes when he does play. He's at six helpers, 21 shots on net, 19 blocks and a minus-4 rating through 17 outings this season.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Sends helper Tuesday

    Aho notched an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Aho has now played in four straight games, and he's logged three assists in that span. The 26-year-old helped out on a Casey Cizikas goal Tuesday. Aho is up to five helpers, 20 shots on net, 18 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating in 16 appearances. He'll continue to battle for playing time on the third pairing -- the veteran Andy Greene will likely get another turn in the lineup soon.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Notches assist in loss

    Aho had an assist in the Islanders' 6-3 loss to the Sabres on Tuesday.

    Aho was in the lineup Tuesday for the first time in 16 games as coach Barry Trotz elected to give Andy Greene the night off. The assist was the second of the season in 12 games for Aho. The Islanders are struggling and going nowhere fast, and it would seem to be the prudent thing to do to get younger players like Kieffer Bellows and Aho in the lineup as much as possible, but it remains to be seen if Trotz feels the same way.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Healthy scratch for 13 straight

    Aho has been a healthy scratch for 13 straight games.

    Even when Ryan Pulock was out of the lineup due to a lower-body injury, Aho still didn't crack the lineup. Aho is currently eighth on the depth chart, as rookie Robin Salo has also passed him.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Healthy scratch once again

    Aho was a healthy scratch for the 10th straight game for the Islanders on Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Robin Salo has taken over the last defensive spot, with Ryan Pulock (lower body) still on long-term injured reserve. Aho is once again the seventh defenseman and could be the eighth when Pulock returns to the Islanders.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Back at practice

    Aho (personal) returned to practice Friday, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

    Aho missed Thursday's loss to the Devils to be present for the birth of his child, but he'll be an option for Saturday's matchup with Washington. The 25-year-old defender has been a healthy scratch for five of the Islanders last six games, so he'll be facing an uphill battle to crack the lineup against the Capitals.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Not playing Thursday

    Aho is out of the lineup Thursday due to the birth of his child, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Aho may not have played Thursday anyway, as he and Robin Salo have been battling for the final spot on defense with Ryan Pulock still on injured reserve due to a lower-body injury.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Aho has been taken out of COVID-19 protocols by the Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho should be good to go when the Islanders next play Jan. 13 versus the Devils.
