 June 2014 - Surprisingly, Sebastian Aho was not selected at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft but the undersized two-way defenseman will be eligible at the 2015 draft. Brendan Ross


May 2014 – Skating at a minute 5-foot-8, smooth skating Swedish defenseman Sebastian Aho is well below average in terms of height. Despite his deficiency in stature, Aho’s ability to dominate possession using superb skating abilities and confident puck skills is very high end. He is a strong defender who can battle against the biggest of competitors using ideal positioning to gain an advantage. With nothing one can do about his size, scouts need to focus on the positives and Aho’s skill and leadership abilities are admirable qualities. He has represented his Swedish roots on several occasions with good success and wore a letter on his jersey. Brendan Ross



Fantasy Outlook: C+
