The Carolina Hurricanes said Tuesday that they will match the Montreal Canadiens’ five-year, $42.27 million offer sheet to center Sebastian Aho.
The 21-year-old restricted free agent signed the deal tendered by Montreal on Monday, giving Carolina seven days to make a decision. They had only one.
“This was a simple choice,” said Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell at a statement. “Sebastian is among the best players in the league and the centerpiece of what we’re building here. We have talked throughout this procedure to him and he’s made it crystal clear he wants to maintain Raleigh and be part of the business.
“It is our job to handle our cap area as our players develop and hit free agency. There wasn’t any concern at any point that we would be unable to match this contract. More, that the Carolina Hurricanes shouldn’t be underestimated. We’ve got a strategy and the resources to win a Stanley Cup.”
The price carries an average annual value of $8.454 million and runs through the 2023-24 season. It features a documented $21.87 million in signing bonuses for Aho, a Finland native.
Aho tallied 83 points (30 goals, 53 assists) in 82 games last season, setting career highs across the board and getting the sixth player in franchise history with 30 goals and 50 assists in a season.
The Canadiens could have delivered first-, second- and – third-round selections in the 2020 draft to the Hurricanes as reimbursement if the deal hadn’t been matched by them.
That was not likely to happen, Carolina proprietor Tom Dundon told The News and Observer in Raleigh.
“We’re surprised. The player is loved by us and we are pleased to have this done. And surprised someone would have thought this could work,” Dundon said. “We were never going to let him move. He did not wish to go. This is part of the work of getting the deal done. I said the day that I purchased the group and nothing has changed, he is among if not the most significant part our future and we’re lucky to have him”
