  • Varlamov stopped 32 of 33 shots in Thursday's win over the Panthers. Varlamov bounced back nicely after he gave up four goals in a loss to the Capitals two nights ago. Unfortunately, inconsistency has plagued Varlamov all season, as he owns a 10-8-1 record with a .906 save percentage. The Russian netminder showed Thursday what he's capable of doing for your fantasy team, but these type of performances have been too infrequent. He can be great some nights, but be fully prepared to be disappointed on others.

  • Varlamov will man the crease for Thursday's matchup with Florida, Adrian Dater of reports. After enduring a forgettable, injury-hit 2016-17 campaign, about the only thing that's improved for Varly in 2017-18 is his health. Having already played 19 games, Varlamov is 9-8-1 with a 3.19 GAA and .903 save percentage, making it difficult to justify selecting him for fantasy lineups. Varlamov could have a rare favorable matchup Thursday, though, as he'll be taking on a Panthers squad that scores just 2.25 goals per game on the road -- the second-worst mark in the league.

  • Varlamov allowed four goals on 26 shots during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals. Varlamov couldn't save the day against the team that drafted him, falling to 9-8-1 on the season. The 29-year-old Russian relies on a starter's volume for his fantasy value and remains a risky play most nights.

  • Varlamov will start Tuesday's road matchup against the Capitals, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports. Varlamov received the night off Monday, when his team took down the defending champion Penguins in a 2-1 victory, and he will have the chance to notch his second consecutive win after making 39 saves against the Panthers on Saturday. That will certainly be a tall order against a Washington squad that, prior to a disappointing loss to the Islanders on Monday, had scored four goals or more in its previous four contests.

  • Avalanche's Semyon Varlamov: Busy in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Varlamov made 39 saves in Saturday's 7-3 win over Florida. Nice night, but it's just Varly's ninth win of the season and his first in December. His 41-win season in 2013-14 looks tiny in the rear-view mirror. Varlamov might rebound, but he needs to snap out of his current funk. Saturday was a start -- let's see if he can continue it.
