Varlamov underwent an MRI on Monday and the results did not reveal anything positive for the Avalanche. Varlamov will miss a couple of weeks at least, which leaves the team with Calvin Pickard as their starter.
Varlamov is day-to-day with a groin injury; will not play on Tuesday.
Varlamov is still battling a groin injury that cost him to miss six games from November 15th-December 3rd. There is no word on who will be called up, but if it is Calvin Pickard, he will get the start. Groin injuries with goalies are tricky, so Varly could be held out for awhile.
Varlamov leads the Avalanche onto the ice for warmups.
Varlamov allowed four goals on 25 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames last night. It was Varlamov’s first start since November 15th, but he will go again tonight in the second game of the Avs’ back-to-back. It hasn’t been a great two months for Varly, who has missed time with injuries and posted a 4-5-5 record with a 3.01 GAA and .914 SV%.
Varlamov stopped 23 of 25 shots in a win over the Devils in his last start back on November 15th. The Avs went 3-3-0 in the six games that Varly missed, but he will be back between the pipes tonight in Calgary. He is 4-5-4 with a 2.95 GAA and .918 SV% this season, but the Avs are playing better of late, making him an interesting buy-low candidate.
The Avalanche have placed Semyon Varlamov (groin) on injured reserve.
Varlamov’s designation on IR is retroactive to November 15th, which means he is eligible to be activated whenever he is healthy. They moved him to IR so they could recall Karl Stollery from Lake Erie without having to send anyone down.
Varlamov missed Tuesday’s practice after he re-injured his groin in Saturday’s win over the Devils. He missed time last month with a groin injury and he is listed as day-to-day this time around. Calvin Pickard has been recalled from Lake Erie to back-up Reto Berra.
Varlamov gets the call in goal for the Avalanche on Thursday.
Varlamov allowed six goals on 46 shots in the Avs' loss to the Islanders on Tuesday. It was a rough outing for Varly but Patrick Roy will give him a chance to bounce back right away on Thursday vs. the Rangers. He has a 3.05 GAA and .918 SV% in 11 games this season.
Varlamov allowed five goals on 37 shots in the Colorado’s 5-2 loss to the Canucks last Tuesday. Varly was given Thursday off after starting the seven previous games and ended up sitting for two in a row because Reto Berra was rewarded an extra start after playing well vs. Toronto. Varlamov gets back between the pipes with a 2-4-4 record, 2.75 GAA and .925 SV%.
Varlamov makes his seventh straight start tonight.
Varlamov gave up three goals on 33 shots in the Avs' loss to the Ducks on Sunday. He will make his seventh straight start tonight having gone 2-1-3 with a 1.94 GAA and .943 SV% in six starts since returning from injury. He draws a tough matchup tonight vs. the 8-4-0 Canucks.
Varlamov stopped 27 of 29 shots in the Avs' shootout loss to the Blues last night. Head coach Patrick Roy was impressed enough by Varly last night to turn to him again tonight vs. Anaheim. Since returning from a three-game absence, Varlamov has won two of five with a 1.72 GAA and .949 SV%.
Varlamov turned aside all 40 shots that he faced in a 5-0 shutout win over the Islanders on Thursday. Since returning from a groin injury, Varly has won two of four with a 1.69 GAA and .953 SV%. He will look to pick up his first road win of the season tonight in St. Louis.
Varlamov stopped 49 of 51 shots in the Avalanche's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sharks on Tuesday. Despite averaging 33.8 saves and posting a .933 SV% in his last five starts Varlamov is 1-1-3 over that stretch. Besides a seven goal explosion vs. the Canucks, the Avs have not scored in front of Varly so far, but that could change tonight against an Isles team averaging 3.44 goals against per game.
