Report: Avalanche Goalie Semyon Varlamov Has Turned Himself In to Police, Jailed on Domestic Violence Charges

Colorado Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov turned himself in to the police and was arrested on Thursday for domestic violence charges.

Ryan Parker of the Denver Post first reported the story.

Parker provided some more information via Twitter.

Kyle Clark from Channel 9 News in Denver has reported that “Varlamov is being held without bond. Night in the Denver jail.”

The 25-year-old has been a major part of Colorado’s early success to start the 2013-14 NHL season. The Avalanche sit atop the Western Conference standings with a 10-1 record, and they lead the league in goals against average and penalty killing thanks to the Russian goaltender’s stellar performance (7-1, 1.76 GAA, .945 SV%).

If Varlamov has to miss any games because of this situation, Avalanche backup and former Conn Smythe Trophy winner Jean-Sebastien Giguere will likely take over the starting role. He’s 3-0 with two shutouts this year.
