Watch: Aho bats puck in off glass in Hurricanes' rout of Senators
The dynamic forward showed tremendous patience after the puck deflected up onto the glass, waiting for it to fall below the crossbar before batting it out of midair and into the net early in the third period.
Aho's first goal of the evening came on a shorthanded breakaway in the second frame.
The 22-year-old has now collected eight goals and five assists in 18 games this season.
Carolina snapped a four-game losing streak with the victory, avenging Saturday's 4-1 loss to Ottawa in the process.
