Sami Aittokallio was born on August 6, 1992 in Tampere, Finland. A product of Ilves in the Finnish junior program, Aittokallio would ultimately work his way up to the Elite League before making the move to North America.

Aittokallio was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche. He would return to Finland for two more seasons before joining the Avalanche's AHL affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters, for the 2012-13 season. In 27 games for the Monsters Aittokallio would record 14 wins, including one shutout and a solid 3.00 goals against average.

Aittokallio would receive his first recall to the NHL during the lockout shortened 2012-13 season to serve as an emergency backup on April 9, 2013. Two nights later he would make his NHL debut against the Los Angeles Kings. Aittokallio suffered a bout of dehydration during the contest and was replaced during the third period by J.S. Giguere. The Avalanche would go on to lose the game in a shootout.
