Sebastian Aho won't Play Saturday for the Carolina Hurricanes


Dec 10, 2022

Sebastian Aho won’t play Saturday for the Carolina Hurricanes, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes’ official website reports.

Aho is dealing with a lower-body injury, and coach Rod Brind’amour had stated Thursday that if Aho (who didn’t practice Thursday) wasn’t able to practice Friday, he wouldn’t play Saturday. Losing Aho for any length of time will be felt, as he has 11 goals and 16 assists in 26 games. Paul Stastny is expected to take his spot on the top line along with Seth Jarvis and Martin Necas to start the game. While the Islanders catch a break with Aho missing this contest, they will still have to contend with Andrei Svechnikov, quietly having an MVP-type season.

On Saturday, the Hurricanes will travel to Long Island to take on the New York Islanders. The Canes are +172 (-1.5) on the puck line and -137 on the moneyline, with an over/under of 5.5, over (-118), and under (-104) on Saturday. You can find the lines and props for this game and all others on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
