Averaging significantly less ice time than his defensive teammates at 16:46 a game, Aho managed to keep up with the pack in the points category, finishing one above Alexander Romanov and one below Scott Mayfield, who both played at least three minutes more per game.

He may not be the ideal power play threat, but Aho is capable of holding his own. With the Isles typically playing two defensemen on the second power play unit, Aho slots better into that second defenseman role. He's not going to beat anyone with a booming shot, but he's not shy about getting the puck toward the net and looking for a deflection. His five power play points aren't anything to write home about, but it's not as if he had much help on one of the league's worst power plays.

On a team where skating and speed seem to be an issue, Aho is one of the team's better skaters along the blue line. He can typically keep up with the opposition when tracking back into the defensive zone but will struggle against some of the higher-end skaters.
