Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Antti Aalto
Aalto was drafted 134th overall in 1993 by Anaheim but continued to play in the Finnish League until '97 when he finally ventured to California to test the NHL waters.

After starting the 1997-98 season with Cincinnati of the AHL, Aalto was called up to the Mighty Ducks where he played his first NHL game on December 6, 1997 against Pittsburgh. He played twice more that season and made the team full-time for '98-'99. Never a scorer back home, he managed only ten goals in his first 139 games on eams that struggled to make the playoffs.

In 2000-01, the Lappeenranta, Finland native split the season between Anaheim and the team's AHL affiliate in Cincinnati before returning to Finland in 2001-02 where he is currently a member of Jokerit Helsinki.

Aalto has played internationally on numerous occastions for his native Finland, at the World Junior Championships (1994 & '95) and the World Championships (1997 and 2000), though never at the Olympics.
