  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Activated off injured reserve

    Aho (upper body) was taken off the injured reserve list Wednesday, per the NHL media site, which indicates he'll play in the evening's game against Boston.

    Aho was originally considered a game-time decision, but his activation seems to suggest he's ready to return. He has four assists, nine hits and 26 blocks in 19 appearances this season.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Game-time call Wednesday

    Aho (upper body) is expected to be a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest versus Boston, coach Lane Lambert told Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Aho has four assists, nine hits and 26 blocks in 19 contests this campaign. He's missed the Islanders' last eight games because of the injury. Scott Mayfield suffered an upper-body injury and isn't expected to be an option Wednesday, so if Aho can't return, then Grant Hutton might play after being summoned from AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Joins team on the ice

    Aho (upper body) is skating with the team but won't be ready to face San Jose on Tuesday.

    Aho will be sidelined for his fifth straight game Tuesday but appears to be nearing a return to action. The blueliner has yet to score a goal in 19 games this season while recording just 18 shots and averaging a paltry 14:11 of ice time. Given his limited minutes and lack of offensive upside, fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting much out of the Swede even once cleared to play.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Moves to IR

    Aho (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

    Aho, who sat out Saturday's 1-0 shootout loss to Philadelphia, will be unavailable for at least two more games following his placement on the IR list. He has registered four assists, 18 shots on goal and 26 blocked shots in 19 appearances this campaign. Mike Reilly or Grant Hutton, who played in Saturday's contest, are candidates to suit up for the Islanders during Aho's absence.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Suffers injury Friday

    Aho (upper body) was injured in Friday's 5-3 win over Ottawa, per Callum Fraser of NHL.com.

    Aho limped off the ice just 3:07 into the first period. He was not able to return and an update on his status was not provided following the contest. It's unclear at this time if he will be available for Saturday's matchup with Philadelphia. If Aho can't play, Mike Reilly, who was claimed off waivers from Florida on Saturday, may get a chance to make his New York debut.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Unavailable Saturday

    Aho (upper body) won't play Saturday against Philadelphia, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Aho was injured early in Friday's 5-3 win over Ottawa. He has produced four assists, 18 shots on goal and 26 blocked shots in 19 appearances this campaign. Grant Hutton, who was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Saturday, will replace Aho in the lineup Saturday.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Nabs assist in overtime loss

    Aho posted a power-play assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Aho snapped a three-game point drought with the helper. While he's generally seen limited even-strength time on the third pairing, he also has a spot on the second power-play unit. The 27-year-old defenseman is at three assists (two on the power play), 21 blocked shots, 17 shots on net and a minus-3 rating through 15 contests.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Gets on scoresheet with helper

    Aho notched an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    The helper was Aho's first point in seven contests this season. The 27-year-old blueliner has been a fixture on the third pairing, but with Scott Mayfield (leg) out, the Islanders have leaned on their top-four defensemen more. Aho has added eight shots on goal, 10 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating, but his limited role is not conducive to helping fantasy managers.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Returning Sunday

    Aho (upper body) is in Sunday's lineup against Carolina, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho is set to play for the first time since March 18 after missing the last six games. The 27-year-old has five goals and 21 points through 66 games this season. He'll skate in a top-four role Sunday.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Practices but won't play Saturday

    Aho (upper body) skated with the Islanders on Saturday but won't play against the Lightning, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Aho will miss a sixth game after suffering an upper-body injury on March 18 in San Jose. The 27-year-old blueliner has five goals, 16 assists and a plus-6 rating in 66 games this year. Samuel Bolduc will remain in the lineup in a bottom-pairing role.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Not with team in Washington

    Aho (upper body) didn't make the trip to Washington for Wednesday's matchup, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho will be unavailable for his fifth consecutive contest due to his lingering upper-body injury. Prior to getting hurt, the defenseman had registered points in four of his last seven contests, though he was stuck in a 10-game goal drought. Until Aho is cleared to play, Samuel Bolduc will continue to deputize in his stead on the blue line.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Out Friday

    Aho (upper body) will not play Friday against Columbus, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Assists in consecutive contests

    Aho notched an assist and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.

    Aho has a helper in each of the last two games and four of six outings in March. He helped out on Hudson Fasching's second-period marker.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Picks up helper

    Aho logged an assist and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Kings.

    Aho has an assist in three of his last five games, and he's added six shots on net and seven blocked shots in that span. The 27-year-old defenseman continues to hold down a spot on the third pairing. He's racked up five goals, 15 assists, 80 shots on net, 66 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 64 appearances this season.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: One goal in last 18 games

    Aho has only lit the lamp once in his last 18 games.

    On the season, Aho does have five goals, 17 points, and a rating of plus-6 in 59 games. Aho wasn't expected to play this many games this season, not without an injury. Still, when given the opportunity to get in the lineup early on this season, he proved to new head coach Lane Lambert that he could be more reliable in his own end than Robin Salo. Aho will next be looking to help the Islanders reach the players on Saturday when they play the Red Wings.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Third straight game with apple

    Aho recorded an assist in Friday's 5-4 win over the Penguins.

    Aho was the odd man out in a Feb. 9 contest against the Canucks, but he's responded appropriately by racking up an assist in three straight games since returning. The third-pairing blueliner continues to play a simple game and has four goals, 12 assists and a plus-6 rating on the season ledger.

  • Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Healthy scratch Thursday

    Aho will be in the press box Thursday night versus the Canucks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Aho has been a solid defender for the team this season, but someone had to sit with the return of Alexander Romanov. Some might argue that it's Romanov who should be the healthy scratch, but the Islanders spent a first-round pick to acquire him from the Montreal Canadiens on draft night, and he's going to get every chance to prove that he was worth that price. Aho will next get a chance to play Saturday in Montreal versus those same Canadiens.
