David Pastrnak. Auston Matthews. Alex Ovechkin. Nathan MacKinnon. Leon Draisaitl. Jack Eichel. That’s it. Those are the only players in the NHL right now with more goals than Sebastian Aho, who is having a career season so far with the Carolina Hurricanes. Every year he keeps getting better and better. And noone is talking about it.
Sure there are plenty of people talking about. We are. Other outlets are, but he is not considered an elite player by the majority of sports media. Is it because he plays in Carolina where the media is afraid to be bitten by a radioactive redneck?
