I wouldn't blame you if you went looking for Sebastian Aho highlights on Youtube and got really confused. The top result over there appears to show a short Swedish d-man, and, well, it's not a mistake. Sebastian Aho is a diminutive Swedish blueliner that's eligible for his second entry draft this season.

But there's another Sebastian Aho. This one is rated lower by NHL central scouting, but he's much younger with a much more impressive statistical resume to his credit. This Finnish Aho has been tearing up the Liiga's junior circuit for years before finally graduating to a full-time pro at an extremely young 17 years of age in 2015.

Join us after the jump for a look at one of Finland's most dynamic young scorers.

Peluso, 26, was a pending restricted free agent and the contract that he's signed will net him $40,000 dollars more than the value of his qualifying offer (which he'll no longer get or require). Though he's a replacement level offensive contributor with limited defensive value, Peluso is an imposing physical presence.
