Semyon Varlamov out again for the Avalanche with a lingering injury the team won’t specify – The Denver Post

Semyon Varlamov, the Avalanche’s top goaltender, will miss at least two weeks, Colorado coach Jared Bednar said, with what is apparently a lingering groin strain.

“He’s not ready,” Bednar said. “The goal is to get him back on the ice before the all-star break.”

The Avs on Thursday called up goaltender Andrew Hammond to back up now-No. 1 goalie Jonathan Bernier, who last week was voted the NHL’s second star. Bernier will start Saturday at Dallas against the Stars.

The Avs have not been specific about Varlamov’s injury, saying only that it’s a lower body muscular injury.

Varlamov was injured Jan. 2 against the Winnipeg Jets and had to leave the game early.
