Semyon Varlamov Continues Climbing The Ladder
Most say he’s the reason why the Avs have been in last place all season. He’s no longer the excuse. Semyon Varlamov Continues Climbing The Ladder
Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov suffered a groin injury during a morning skate in Philadelphia, then was placed on injury reserve back in November. Varlamov was having the worst nightmare of his career since his 2009-2010 campaign. Where he outlandishly rammed an un-adjusted .909 SV% with the Washington Capitals over a 26 game span.
Who remembers that funny commercial with Varlamov and Ovi?
The impeccable tandem of Berra and Pickard gave the Avalanche an edge of the hottest streaking NHL backups and hottest AHL starters to split the net until the much-awaited return of Colorado’s savior, Semyon Varlamov.
With Varlamov’s stellar victory over the St. Louis Blues recently, he was expected to have a helluva comeback. A 42-save performance, does it get anymore impressive than that?
The Colorado Avalanche are moving up in the rankings, thanks to the mercurial moves of their goalie who so far seems to be back in his larcenous form as he’s stopped 105 of 108 shots on the latest road trip. Varlamov closed out the road trip with a 29-save shutout over the mighty Chicago Blackhawks.
The hunky Varlamov first played professionally with Lokomotiv Yaroslavi of the Russian Super League (RSL). Yes, Varly is surely gaining back his confidence with his phenomenal plays as of late, ad continues rocking the NHL standings once more. Or many more for that matter!
