Colorado's minor-league affiliate welcomes two promising goalie prospects

Colorado Avalanche goalie prospects Kieran Millan and Kent Patterson have been assigned to the minor-league affiliate Denver Cutthroats, the team's website announced.

The move sets the two first-year goalies up to join the team in training camp – once the lockout ends. Both are coming off four-year collegiate careers, Millan with Boston University and Patterson with the Universtiy of Minnesota.

MIllan was a fifth-round pick in 2009. He was 81-42-12 in 138 collegiate games with a 2.57 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage. In leading the Terriers to the 2009 national title, he went 29-2-3 with a .194 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Patterson was a fourth-round pick in 2007. In four years and 88 games with the Gophers, he went 44.29-9 with a 2.46 GAA and .912 save percentage.

Cutthroats head coach Derek Armstrong talked to the team's website about both players:

"This is what being a minor-league affiliate is about. These are two great, young prospects for the Avalanche and they have an opportunity to learn, develop, and improve as hockey players with our team. They make our roster stronger and we're thrilled to have them."
