Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Future with team uncertain
Varlamov finished the season with a 2.91 GAA and a save percentage of .911.
It was a trying season for Varlamov, as he missed the start of the season due to injury and had COVID-19 right after the All-Star break. There were plenty of trade rumors regarding Varlamov before the deadline, and those rumors could heat up again before the NHL draft. Varlamov is still an above-average goaltender, but if he were to remain with the Islanders, it would likely be as the backup to Ilya Sorokin next season.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Stops 26 in win
Varlamov stopped 26 of 27 shots in Thursday's 5-1 win over Washington.
Varlamov was sharp in the win, losing a shutout bid on an Axel Jonsson-Fjallby goal with just 41 seconds left in the game. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the 34-year-old netminder. Varlamov's record improves to 10-17-2 on the year with a .911 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Guarding cage Thursday
Varlamov will patrol the crease for Thursday's home tilt with Washington.
Varlamov has dropped four straight dating back to April 5, posting an ugly 4.57 GAA during that stretch. The 34-year-old is 9-17-2 with a 2.98 GAA and a .910 save percentage during a disappointing 2021-22 campaign. Unless the team elects to start him in both legs of the back-to-back, Thursday will be Varlamov's final start of the year.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: In net against Canes
Varlamov will start Sunday's game against the Hurricanes, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Varlamov was shelled for six goals on just 23 shots by the Rangers on Thursday, but Ilya Sorokin was hardly any better Saturday, giving up five goals in a loss to Buffalo. The Islanders will turn back to Varlamov to complete this weekend back-to-back set in a tough home matchup against a Hurricanes team that sits atop the Metropolitan Division.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Can't stop Copp
Varlamov allowed six goals on 23 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.
Andrew Copp had a natural hat trick against Varlamov in the first period and the Rangers never looked back, stretching their lead to 5-1 by the end of the second. Varlamov has dropped each of his last three starts in regulation, allowing 15 goals over that span. He'll be tough to trust down the stretch as the Islanders play out the string on a disappointing non-playoff season.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Gets starting nod
Varlamov will guard the home goal during Thursday's matchup with the Rangers.
Varlamov struggled in his last start April 9 against the Blues, surrendering six goals on 31 shots en route to a 6-1 defeat. He'll try to bounce back from that lousy performance and secure his 10th win of the season in a tough home matchup with a Rangers team that's won six of its last seven games.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Available if needed
Varlamov (illness) was on the ice for the morning skate Tuesday and is set to back up Ilya Sorokin against the Panthers, per NHL.com.
Varlamov has been out of action for the last two games due to illness and hasn't appeared in the crease for the Isles since April 9 against the Blues. With two back-to-backs in the team's final seven games, Varlamov should at minimum get two more starts this season. Even if he featured in all seven contests, the 33-year-old netminder will post his lowest win total since 2016-17 when he was limited to just 24 games for the Avalanche.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Out again Sunday
Varlamov (illness) will not play Sunday against the Maple Leafs, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Varlamov did not take part in Sunday's morning skate, and head coach Barry Trotz said afterward that the veteran goaltender would remain unavailable for a second straight contest. Ilya Sorokin is slated to make another start in Varlamov's place.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Out Friday

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Singing blues in St. Loo
Varlamov made 25 saves in a 6-1 loss to the Blues on Saturday.
Varlamov didn't play poorly - his team around him did. In the first, a wide-open Nick Leddy beat him from the slot to open the game and a wide-open Vladimir Tarasenko picked up a rebound right in front of him and curled the puck around his pad. Justin Faulk beat him twice, including once on a rebound from a 3-on-1, and Ivan Barbashev poked the puck over the goal line on another rebound following a breakaway. No goalie can hold the fort on wide-open looks, odd-man rushes and breakaways. The Isles looked lost Saturday and Varlamov was a sitting duck.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Expected to start Saturday
Varlamov is expected to start Saturday against the Blues, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Varlamov will get the second half of a back-to-back set after Ilya Sorokin defeated the Hurricanes 2-1 on Friday. The former has a 2.74 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 27 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Falls short in Dallas
Varlamov allowed three goals on 40 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.
Varlamov faced nearly twice as much rubber as Jake Oettinger (19-for-21 in saves) in the contest. Radek Faksa's shorthanded tally in the second period was the difference, sending Varlamov to his first loss since March 26. The 33-year-old netminder slipped to 9-14-2 with a 2.74 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 27 appearances. Ilya Sorokin (upper body) was healthy enough to back up Varlamov on Tuesday, but it's unclear when the former will get his next start. The Islanders wrap up a road trip with a back-to-back, visiting the Hurricanes on Friday and the Blues on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Starting road game
Varlamov will be between the pipes on the road versus Dallas on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Varlamov is riding a three-game winning streak during which he posted a 1.67 GAA and .952 save percentage. After splitting the starts for most of March, Varlamov was pressed into service with Ilya Sorokin's (upper body) sidelined. Even with Sorokin expected to be fit to back up, Varlamov may have done enough to cement himself as the starter down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Blanks Rangers on Friday
Varlamov stopped all 27 shots he faced in Friday's 3-0 win over the Rangers.
The Islanders found the back of the net in all three periods, but the Rangers couldn't get a puck by Varlamov at all as he stole a win in Madison Square Garden. The shutout was his second of the season and the 36th of his NHL career, and he's won three straight starts with Ilya Sorokin (upper body) on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Second start in as many nights
Varlamov will start Friday's game against the Rangers.
Varlamov will make his third consecutive start and second in as many nights while Ilya Sorokin continues to recover from an upper-body injury. In his only previous encounter with the crosstown rivals this season, Varlamov allowed four goals on 21 shots in a losing effort. Cory Schneider will work as his backup Friday.... See More ...

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Back-to-back wins over CBJ
Varlamov made 30 saves in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
The Islanders led 2-0 after one, but Columbus pushed back with a pair of unanswered goals in the second. Varlamov bricked up the net in the third and got three more goals in support to sweep the home-and-home against Columbus. With Ilya Sorokin (upper body) already ruled out for Friday's game against the Rangers, the Islanders will either ride Varlamov for the second time in as many nights or turn to Cory Schneider in net....

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Hangs on for win Tuesday
Varlamov made 42 saves in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jackets.
The Islanders were outshot 45-29 on the night but Varlamov was the difference, even though things got nervous late after the Jackets nearly clawed their way back from a 4-1 deficit midway through the second period. Varlamov is 4-1-1 over his last seven appearances with a .921 save percentage, although his 2.81 GAA over that stretch indicates how far the Isles' defensive effort has fallen from years past. If Ilya Sorokin's upper-body injury proves to be serious, Varlamov could see a hefty workload over the coming weeks.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Likely to start Thursday
Varlamov is expected to start Thursday for the Islanders in their rematch versus the Blue Jackets, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Varlamov made 42 saves in the Islanders' 4-3 victory over the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, and with Ilya Sorokin still dealing with an upper-body injury, Varlamov is expected to start Thursday. Even if Sorokin is deemed healthy, with the Islanders also playing Friday, it would seem prudent that they would still start Varlamov on Thursday, thus giving Sorokin an extra day's rest....

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Between the pipes Tuesday
Varlamov will start for the Islanders when they take on the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
This was expected as Ilya Sorokin is out of the lineup due to a suspected concussion. Varlamov has had a down season for him and was lit up to the tune of eight goals on 62 shots over the weekend versus the Bruins and Lightning. Varlamov should have an easier time Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets, as they don't possess the same type of offense, but he still carries a GAA of 2.87 and save percentage of .913 into this contest....

Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Needed in relief Sunday
Varlamov stopped 12 of 14 shots after replacing Ilya Sorokin (upper body) to begin the third period in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Lightning.
The Islanders were already down 2-1 when Varlamov took over, so the loss goes on Sorokin's record. Varlamov has been shaky lately but has also seen a ton of rubber, posting a 3.15 GAA and .914 save percentage through seven starts in March. If Sorokin's injury proves to be serious, Varlamov would need to take over the full-time starting role rather than work in a timeshare as he's been doing all season.... See More ... See Less
