DENVER (AP) The Colorado Avalanche have agreed to a three-year, entry-level deal with goaltender Justus Annunen, the team announced Thursday.
The 20-year-old Finnish product was a third-round pick by Colorado in the 2018 draft. He was 15-5-3 with a 1.77 goals-against average this season for Karpat, a team in Finland's top professional league. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Annunen also posted six shutouts, including a streak where he went 302 minutes, 5 seconds without allowing a goal.
Annunen suited up for Finland at the 2020 IIHF world junior championships. He had a 2.65 goals-against average in six contests.
