Avs Prospects Signing Tracker (updated)

It's been rumored for weeks that Sami Aittokallio would be returning to Europe next season and it was revealed early Thursday morning that he has signed a two-year contract with Kärpät (Liiga). 

Now the Avalanche qualified Aittokallio this week, meaning they retain his rights (until age 27) should he decide to make a return to North America.
