The Avalanche have reportedly signed BU goalie Kieran Millan to an entry level deal identical to the one signed by Kent Patterson. That gives the Avs 3 AHL-level goalies under contract in Millan, Patterson and Calvin Pickard. Additionally, the Avalanche have until June 1st to sign Finnish goalie Sami Aittokallio or they will lose his rights. As has been speculated previously, it is likely that neither Cedrick Desjardins or Trevor Cann will be back with Lake Erie next year. Both will be free agents this summer.
The Avalanche face a June 1st deadline for two other prospects, both defensemen from the 2010 draft. Troy Rutkowski was a 5th round pick who just finished his junior career with the Portland Winter Hawks. And Stephan Silas was a 4th rounder in 2010 who just closed out his final campaign with the Belleville Bulls.
