Hurricanes expected to match Sebastian Aho $42M offer sheet

The Carolina Hurricanes say they will match the offer sheet tendered to restricted free agent Sebastian Aho by the Montreal Canadiens.

Montreal signed the centre to a front-loaded, bonus-heavy contract worth $42.27 million US over five years on Monday on the first day of NHL free agency.

Carolina had a week to match the deal. If the Hurricanes had declined to match the offer sheet given to the 21-year-old Aho, the Canadiens would have had to surrender first-, second- and third-round draft picks as compensation.
