  • Avalanche's Semyon Varlamov: Out sick Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Varlamov is dealing with an illness ahead of Wednesday's game against the visiting Stars, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Varlamov's illness will force the Avalanche to continue playing primary backup Jonathan Bernier, who overcame a 3-1 deficit to beat the Red Wings in overtime Sunday.

  • Varlamov allowed five goals on 24 shots in Saturday's loss to Nashville. Varlamov was outdueled by a much better Pekka Rinne and saw his save percentage fall to .903 on the season. While his 7-4-1 record is decent, Varlamov has given up at least four goals in three of his last four outings and isn't trending in the right direction. He has the ability to steal games, but his inconsistency makes him a frustrating fantasy player. Not knowing which version of Varlamov you'll see on any given night makes it hard to recommend the Avs' starter in the majority of shallow settings.

  • Varlamov is penciled in as Saturday night's road starter versus the Predators, Adrian Dater of BSN Denver reports. Impressively, the Russian backstop has reeled off seven wins through 11 games, but his peripherals (3.07 GAA and .910 save percentage) are rather pedestrian. Nashville doesn't put a lot of rubber on net, though it averages three goals per game and boasts the 10th-best power play, so Varlamov will still need to be one of his team's best penalty killers in this matchup against the defending Western Conference champions.

  • Varlamov allowed two goals on 30 shots during Thursday's 6-2 rout of the Capitals. The Russian was equal to the task against his old team with several excellent saves to backstop Colorado to an impressive win over the reigning President's Trophy winners. That said, Varlamov remains a risky play behind a young defense, so make sure you have reasonable expectations when you start him given the 3.18 GAA and .908 save percentage he carried into Thursday's action.

  • Varlamov will square off against the Capitals at home Thursday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Varlamov's record (6-3-1) doesn't properly reflect his performance as he has registered a 3.18 GAA and .908 save percentage. The netminder certainly isn't to blame for all of the Avs' struggles considering the club is allowing 33.9 shots per game -- fourth highest in the league.
