Observations:

 

October 2013- Aittokallio will not be called up to cover any time for Varlamov despite his arrest. Although the investigation is sill on going Varlamov has been permitted to travel with the team and will do so per Avs management. When Aittokallio does get the call up he will do well in the Avs current system but until then he will be spending his time in Lake Erie with the monsters. Andrew Ward


October 2013 - With the arrest of Semyon Varlamov (domestic abuse), it's possible that Aittokallio will see NHL action sooner rather than later, depending on how the case goes. Aittokallio so far has the edge over Calvin Pickard as the No.3 goalie. His upside is probably that of an NHL starter. If he can reach it is the million dollar question. But under the current coaching system, he's set up to do well when he does get NHL starts. - Dobber

 

 

April 2013- Sami Aittokallio is set to make his debut with the Avalanche April 11th. Varlamov is injured and the Avs are not longer in the playoff hunt so Aittikallio might see a couple starts before the seasons end. Andrew Ward

 

February 2013 - Sami Aittokallio recorded two wins and one shootout loss in January posting a stallar .941 save percentage for the month. Aitokallio has a .902 save percentage on the year, respectably, and eleven wins eight losses, and one shootout loss for the season in his first professional stint in the AHL. Andrew Ward


August, 2012 - Sami Aittokallio is one of the best goalie prospects coming out of Finland right now. Aittokallio was Team Finland's starting goaltender in the 2012 World Junior Championship where he attracted attention playing several great games and ended up posting a save percentage of .937. Aittokallio has signed an NHL contract with the Avalanche but it's still unclear whether he will play in the AHL or in Finland this season.

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

Winning the battle with Pickard for No.3 status.
