    It'sthat time of the year. Christmas in July when the big sales come around and thegoodies I've been looking for all year come into my collection.

    Today'sis one of them and represents the first of five days of glorious additions tothe collection. So let's get started shall we?

    Bornof August 6, 1992 in Tampere, Finland, Sami Aittokallio was a standout prospectof the various divisions of the Finnish leagues until he was eventually drafted107th overall by Colorado in 2010. Sami remained in Finland until theconclusion of the 2011-12 season, the highlight of which was several standoutperformances for Finland's World Junior Team. In 2012-13, he made the Lake ErieMonsters of the AHL and appeared in 27 contests for them, however, like all ofthe stories in the museum, this one had that big moment as well. On April 11,2013, it happened. Sami Aittokallio was given the start in goal against theTamp Bay Lightning and stopped 23 of 25 shots before having to leave the gamein the third due to dehydration. A sort of anti-climactic end to an NHL debut.Fast forward to 2013-14, Aittokallio was once again with the Lake ErieMonsters, appearing in 36 games with them. On January 25, 2014, he was onceagain given the call. This time, however, he lasted two periods between thepipes as he surrendered three goals on 18 shots in the team's eventual 5-2defeat. The following season, he hovered between the AHL and ECHL beforeeventually returning to Finland. The Avalanche officially let Aittokallio go atthe conclusion of the 2015-16 season.

    Inhis NHL career, Aittokallio appeared in two games, recording an 0-1 record witha 3.36GAA, and a 0.884% save average. He appeared in no playoff games.

    Thesweater you are looking at right now is a 2013-14 Colorado Avalanche White Set1 sweater worn by Sami Aittokallio on January 25, 2014 in his second and finalNHL game. The wear is decent despite the minimal games played, and it iscomprised of several black marks throughout the front of the sweater.
