Sebastian Aho, the Hurricanes' top centerman, has signed an eight-year extension valued at $9.75M AAV.

It is suggested that Nylander won't earn more than Aho, which could be significant for the Maple Leafs. Nylander reportedly asked for something around $10M, but this could mean he'll settle for a lower salary.

"Reports are indicating that Sebastian Aho's contract (8x9.75M) will be the very maximum for William Nylander.

While Nylander has out-performed Aho offensively, it appears he will settle at a number lower than Aho."
