  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Falls to St. Louis

    Varlamov allowed three goals on 24 shots in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Blues. Varlamov surrendered all three goals within 32 seconds early in the second period -- Brandon Saad opened the scoring with a power-play marker before Pavel Buchnevich subsequently tallied a pair of goals. The 35-year-old Varlamov has struggled since returning from a three-week stint on injured reserve, going 0-3-1 with an .881 save percentage. Overall, he's 6-7-3 with a .910 save percentage and 2.91 GAA while backing up Ilya Sorokin this season.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Will play Thursday

    Varlamov will start on the road versus the Blues on Thursday, Ethan Sears of the New York Post reports. Varlamov will get the nod after Ilya Sorokin stopped 37 of 41 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins. It's been over two months since Varlamov last logged a win, but he has just seven appearances in that span, going 0-3-2 with a 3.44 GAA and an .894 save percentage. The Blues have scored 21 goals over their last six games, so they may be a tough challenge for Varlamov to get his game back on track.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Struggling to snap slump

    Varlamov made 19 saves on 22 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Flames in Saturday. Calgary scored two empty-netters in the third period. Varlamov has a sparkling reputation as one of the NHL's best backups, but he's in the midst of a painful 0-3-2 run in his last six starts. And he hasn't won since Dec. 13 against Anaheim. Varlamov did miss three weeks with a lower-body injury in January, and he continues to struggle to find his groove. Some of the struggles of the Islanders' netminding tandem have been the result of poor defense. With the arrival of new coach Patrick Roy, the team is starting to buy into a more aggressive defensive structure, which will ultimately benefit both twinetenders. Watch for Varlamov, who has a strong relationship with Roy from his days in Colorado, to get a fair number of starts going forward to better balance Ilya Sorokin's workload. Varlamov's slump should end soon, and the team's new structure could result in better results for fantasy managers.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Between pipes Saturday

    Varlamov will patrol the home crease versus Calgary on Saturday, Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News reports. Varlamov will make his 600th NHL appearance. He has been a backup goaltender to Ilya Sorokin the last three seasons after being a No. 1 goaltender the previous 10 campaigns. Varlamov is 6-5-3 with a 2.88 GAA and a .914 save percentage this season. The Flames have won three straight games and are 12-11-4 on the road this season.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Makes 34 saves in loss

    Varlamov stopped 34 of 37 shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers. Making his second straight start, Varlamov was sharp against a potent Florida offense, holding the Panthers to a pair of power-play goals in regulation before ultimately surrendering the game-winner to Oliver Ekman-Larsson in overtime. The 35-year-old Varlamov has dropped both his starts since returning from a 10-game IR stint, allowing seven goals on 63 shots. Overall, he falls to 6-5-2 with a .914 save percentage and a 2.87 GAA this season.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Making second straight start

    Varlamov will guard the home goal versus the Panthers on Saturday, Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News reports. This comes as a bit of a surprise, as Varlamov allowed four goals on 26 shots Thursday versus the Canadiens in his return from a lower-body injury. During Varlamov's absence, Ilya Sorokin went 3-6-1 with a .907 save percentage, so this may be a case of the Islanders trying to give their top goalie some extra rest heading into the All-Star break. The Panthers present a tough challenge for Varlamov, as they've scored scored 12 times during their three-game winning streak.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Downed by Habs in return

    Varlamov turned aside 22 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens. Making his first appearance since Jan. 2 after recovering from a lower-body injury, Varlamov was under siege early and gave up two power-play goals in the first period as the Isles fell behind 3-0. The 35-year-old netminder rallied and gave his team a chance to tie it up, but he was eventually beaten by a Sean Monahan one-timer from the slot with just over two minutes left in the third. Varlamov wasn't playing all that well even before he got hurt -- since the beginning of December, he carries a 3.42 GAA and .894 save percentage over seven appearances -- and while Ilya Sorokin hasn't been sharp of late either, a return to a timeshare between them seems unlikely.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Slated starter for Thursday

    Varlamov is expected to defend the road net Thursday against Montreal, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday. Varlamov will return to the backup role in Tuesday's home contest against Vegas after he missed the past nine games due to a lower-body injury. Ilya Sorokin will make his 10th straight start versus the Golden Knights, so getting Varlamov some playing time and giving Sorokin a break against the Canadiens makes plenty of sense. The 35-year-old Varlamov has a 6-4-2 record with a 2.78 GAA and a .918 save percentage over 14 appearances this season.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Activated from IR

    Varlamov (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Monday. Varlamov will be available for Tuesday's home matchup against Vegas, though it's unclear at this time if he will start or serve as Ilya Sorokin's backup. Varlamov, who missed the past nine games, has a 6-4-2 record this season with two shutouts, a 2.78 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 14 appearances.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Resumes skating

    Varlamov (lower body) is back on the ice Friday, per Andrew Gross of Newsday. Varlamov has been out of action since Jan. 2. This is a good first step in his eventual return to action. Varlamov is 6-4-2 with a 2.78 GAA and a .918 save percentage this season. Ken Appleby has taken his place as the backup to Ilya Sorokin and Appleby will presumably return to the minors when Varlamov is activated from injured reserve.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Moves to IR

    Varlamov (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. In a corresponding move, Adam Pelech (upper body) was activated from long-term injured reserve. Varlamov, who has been out since Jan. 2, doesn't have an exact timetable for his return. Ken Appleby has been serving as Ilya Sorokin's backup.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Still not skating

    Varlamov (upper body) has yet to resume skating according to head coach Lane Lambert, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports Monday. The fact that the team continues to call Varlamov day-to-day seems insincere considering he is not even skating yet. Given the latest update, fantasy managers probably shouldn't be expecting the netminder to suit up in any of the Isles' next three contests, though he hasn't been officially ruled out beyond Tuesday's clash with Vancouver. Even once cleared to play, Varlamov figures to remain the second-choice option behind Ilya Sorokin.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Unavailable Saturday

    Varlamov (lower body) won't be in the lineup Saturday against Vegas, per Andrew Gross of Newsday. Varlamov will miss his second straight contest after leaving Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to Colorado in the first period. Ilya Sorokin will be backed up by Ken Appleby in Saturday's matchup versus the Golden Knights.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Dealing with lower-body injury

    Varlamov's previously undisclosed injury is a lower-body issue. He's traveling with the Islanders as they play in Arizona on Thursday and Vegas on Saturday, per Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News. Varlamov started Tuesday versus Colorado, but he left the contest late in the first period due to the injury. He has a 6-4-2 record, 2.78 GAA and .918 save percentage in 14 contests this season. Ilya Sorokin is slated to start Thursday versus the Coyotes.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Exits Tuesday's start

    Varlamov (undisclosed) left Tuesday's start versus the Avalanche in the first period after stopping 11 of 12 shots over 14:52, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Given that Varlamov was unavailable with an injury Friday, this is a concerning development. Ilya Sorokin took over in goal and would likely see the vast majority of the playing time if Varlamov ends up sidelined.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Set to face Avalanche

    Varlamov was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports, indicating he will guard the road goal Tuesday against Colorado. Varlamov has gone 6-4-2 this season with two shutouts, a 2.75 GAA and a .918 save percentage over 13 games played. In four career contests against the Avalanche, he has stopped 135 of 147 shots en route to a 2-2-0 record. The Avalanche rank third in the league this campaign with 3.59 goals per contest.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Returning as backup Sunday

    Varlamov (undisclosed) is expected to return as Ilya Sorokin's backup Sunday. Varlamov was unavailable Friday with an undisclosed injury. The 35-year-old netminder is 6-4-2 with a .918 save percentage this season while backing up Sorokin.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Out of action Friday

    Varlamov (undisclosed) will not dress Friday versus Washington, according to Ethan Sears of the New York Post. Ilya Sorokin will get the start and Ken Appleby will be the backup for the Islanders against the Capitals. Varlamov has outplayed Sorokin this season, albeit in limited action, as Varlamov is 6-4-2 with a 2.75 GAA and .919 save percentage. Consider Varlamov day-to-day at this time.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: In doubt Friday

    Varlamov is questionable to face Washington on Friday due to an undisclosed injury, Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News reports. Varlamov is considered day-to-day and may not start against the Capitals even if he's deemed healthy enough to play, as Ilya Sorokin has played the majority of the games this season. Still, Sorokin has conceded 10 goals on 65 shots (.846 save percentage) over his last two contests, which may have opened the door for Varlamov to get some extra looks.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Needed in relief Wednesday

    Varlamov stopped six of seven shots after replacing Ilya Sorokin to begin the third period of Wednesday's 7-0 loss to the Penguins. Little went right for the Islanders on Wednesday, but Varlamov at least wasn't too busy over the final 20 minutes. The veteran netminder had given up at least three goals in nine straight starts prior to this relief appearance, and over that stretch he's posted a 3.31 GAA and .899 save percentage, albeit with a 4-3-2 record.
