Aho sets Hurricanes record for point streak to open season
The Finnish forward picked up an assist in the club's 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday, giving him a nine-game point streak to open the 2018-19 campaign. That streak is the longest to begin a season in Hurricanes history.
In total, Aho now has four goals and 10 assists in nine games, but perhaps the most impressive part of his achievement is that's he's accomplished it all while learning a new position.
A winger throughout his first two seasons in the NHL, Aho has shifted to the much more demanding position of center, but hasn't skipped a beat offensively. He's a huge reason why the 'Canes sit first in the Metropolitan Division with 11 points.
