The New York Islanders have re-signed defenseman Sebastian Aho to a two-year contract, according to The Athletic’s Arthur Staple. As of now, the AAV for the deal has not been reported.

Aho spent another season with the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers this past year, where he had 30 points in 49 games. He hasn’t played a game with the Islanders since the 2017-18 season but remains one of the more promising defense prospects in the organization.

Given that he’s now 24 years old, New York will likely want to get him into a bit of game action at some point soon, so they can get a sense of whether or not he could become an NHL defenseman. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a spare with the Islanders next season.
