Sami Aittokallio

Colorado Avalanche ‏@Avalanche 1m
Jean-Sebastien Giguere out with back spasms. The #Avs have recalled goalie Sami Aittokallio from @monstershockey.

Man the Avs are getting attacked by injuries. I wonder how long Giggy will be out for, and if we'll get to see Sami play again

It'd be a good idea to get a feel for Sami and Calvin in a couple games this year, especially if were planning on going with one of them as backup next year.

This is better news for Millan (my guess) than anyone else, somehow Pickard and Aittokallio stay healthy despite a wave of injuries and Millan is still stuck on the Cutthroats in a backup role despite playing better than Patterson.

It's a shame how good both Millan and Patterson are, yet they'll be stuck behind at least one of Pickard/Aitto (if traded or backup in the NHL) for awhile.

Back spasm problems generally tend to go away quickly. If you rest for a week you should be good to go.

I'd imagine if JSG is still bothered by the spasms, that Aitto will play against New Jersey. Varly will have played 4 straight, and those were played with in a 7 day span. New Jersey is a weaker team and from the east, a perfect time for a backup to play and rest Varly for a divisional road game.

They can take a while though. It's a weird injury you would never think would be a problem.

Really? Why is Millan the backup?

I don't know, but I just saw the games played (22 to 11) and assumed it as such. Unless there's been an injury I was unaware of?

Thanks. I don't know, I don't follow the Cutthroats much. Millan did go to LE for a week or so when Sami was injured, that explains a little.

Glad to see Sami get an opportunity and thank god it's not Varly who is injured.

I'm excited to see how Varly Jr. plays on the big stage.

Patterson got hot while Millan was in Lake Erie the last time, and they have pretty much stuck with him since. Both have played great this year for the Cutthroats.

Yeah, I'm going to say back spasms for an aging goaltender is a pretty significant issue that could possibly cost him a lot of time.

Should give Sami some time with Allaire if nothing else. Not sure if Allaire spends any time in Cleveland? I guess Allaire's minion works with the kids down there.

Interesting they didn't go with Pickard, don't they both have similar results in the AHL.

Honestly, I think that's why they chose Aittokallio.

Aittokallio was the last goalie cut at camp, I'm pretty sure he's third on the depth chart.

Sami has the most NHL experience so I would imagine that is why he was recalled. But he did play very well when he was last up so it should be interesting to see how well he does.

Sami has consistently outplayed Pickard in training camp and has slightly better numbers. He's #3.

also "back spasms"

Perhaps just saving JSG face.
