“I am grateful for the offer from the Montreal Canadiens, but it was always my hope to return to the Hurricanes.”
On Tuesday, the Hurricanes offered to match the $42 million dollar offer sheet from the Montreal Canadiens.
Aho will receive a five-year, front-loaded, bonus-heavy contract worth $42.27 million. It carries an average annual value of $8.454 million.
Aho had career highs with 30 goals, 53 assists and 83 points last season while helping Carolina reach the Eastern Conference final.
“I love it in Raleigh and I am thrilled that we can continue what we started last season,” Aho said.
