Avalanche’s Varlamov arrested in domestic case
DENVER (AP) - Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov surrendered to Denver police on an arrest warrant on charges of kidnapping and third-degree assault in what authorities are calling a domestic violence incident.
Police released few details about the case Wednesday night during a brief news conference and declined to elaborate, other than to say it involved someone who Varlamov was in an intimate relationship with.
An email was left by The Associated Press with Varlamov’s agent.
Varlamov was still in custody Wednesday night, and was due in court for his first court appearance at 10 a.m. Thursday, according to the Denver County sheriff’s website.
Asked if Varlamov will be treated any differently in custody because of his celebrity status, Warneke said: “I don’t know what happens once they get to Denver Sheriff’s, if they do any particulars for high profile, in regards to keeping them safe.
“I do know we consider every criminal prosecution equally important,” Warneke said. “We’re concerned about the rights of the victim, the rights of everybody involved. Our goal every time is to provide everybody with a fair and balanced opportunity to go through the judicial system without corrupting that through releasing things that could jeopardize any sort of criminal case.”
Acquired from Washington in a 2011 trade, Varlamov is 7-1 this season with a 1.76 goals-against average. On Sunday night, he made 24 saves in a 3-2 home victory over Winnipeg.
Between Roy and Allaire, they’ve restored Varlamov’s confidence a year after he allowed three goals a game. Varlamov said he credits his improvement to Allaire altering his form in goal. Just minor tweaks, he said, but wouldn’t elaborate on the specifics of what they were.
Whatever was changed, it has been paying off as he’s among the NHL leaders in goals-against, wins and save percentage (.945).
After practice Wednesday, Avalanche defenseman Erik Johhson said it was “pretty cool to see Varly transition into an elite NHL goalie.”
