Avlanche Call Up Goaltender Sami Aittokallio

With Jean-Sebastian Giguere out of the lineup with back spasms, the Colorado Avalanche have recalled goaltender Sami Aittokallio from their AHL affiliate in Lake Erie according to nbcsports.com.

A netminder described as "rising to the occasion in pressure games", Aittokallio has played in 19 games for the Lake Erie Monsters this season, putting up an 8-8-1 record.  That goes along with a .901 save percentage and 2.83 GAA.

The 21 year-old Finnish netminder saw 49 minutes of action last season for Colorado, putting up a .920 save percentage and 2.45 GAA.
