Aho gets the monkey off his back with a slick move on Bishop.

His face says it all.

You could tell just how much it meant to him just by watching his celly. 

After a breakout 24 goal season as a rookie 20-year-old Carolina Hurricanes forward Sebastien Aho had been unable to find the back of the net this season. While outwardly Aho wouldn't let you know that it was bothering him, it was obvious he got a big monkey off his back on Monday night. 

Thanks to a 2 on 1 chance for the Hurricanes Aho ended up all alone against Dallas Stars goaltender Ben Bishop and he use a nifty move, going five-hole off his backhand, to pick up his very first goal of the season.

The primal scream that erupted from Aho at that moment perfectly captures the emotion of the moment for the young National Hockey League forward.
