BREAKING: Charges Issued To Avalanche Goalie Semyon Varlamov


DENVER — Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov has been charged with third-degree assault stemming from his arrest in October for a domestic violence case by the Denver District Attorney’s office. The Denver Post confirmed the charges early Friday afternoon.

Varlamov, 25, was arrested October 30 after his girlfriend told police the goalie knocked her down, stomped on her, pulled her by her hair and told her in Russian that “if this were Russia, he would have beat her more.” He posted $5,000 bail and has since been allowed to travel and play with the Colorado Avalanche, including playing in goal during Thursday night’s 4-3 overtime win in Phoenix.

A court date is scheduled for Varlamov December 2 in Denver County court. If convicted, he could face a possible two year sentence. Through his attorney, he has maintained his innocence since his arrest.

In 16 games so far this season, Varlamov is 11-5 with 2.23 goals against average for the surprising Colorado Avalanche. The organization has not commented yet.
