Happy Birthday Sebastian Aho!
The Carolina Hurricanes just announced that the center has signed a new contract with the team lasting eight years for a total of 78 million dollars. That makes a reasonable (under the circumstances), $9.75 AAV going forward.
Aho’s current contract pays him an average of $8.46 AAV. He has one more year left at this lower amount before this new contract kicks in. If all goes as planned, he will be in Raleigh through the 2031-32 season.
We will have some analysis concerning the contract later today.
The team will hold a press conference over Zoom at 3 P.M.
