DENVER - The Colorado Avalanche have signed three goaltending prospects to entry-level contracts.

Sami Aittokallio (ay-toh-KAHL-ee-oh), Kieran Millan (KEER-uhn MILL-ahn) and Kent Patterson inked deal Friday.

The 19-year-old Aittokallio is a native of Finland. He was a fourth-round pick of the Avalanche in the 2010 draft.

Millan just completed a four-year career at Boston University, where he is the career leader in victories, games played and saves. He was a fifth-round draft pick in 2009 for Colorado.

Patterson played for the University of Minnesota, which earned a berth in the 2012 NCAA Frozen Four. Colorado chose him in the fourth round of the 2007 draft.
