The early season high for the Colorado Avalanche may have just plummeted.
Goaltender Semyon Varlamov turned himself in to police on Wednesday night on domestic-violence related charges.
According to DPD information officer Sgt. Steve Warneke, the arrest stems from a conflict Tuesday, and an arrest warrant was issued. Varlamov has been charged with third-degree assault and second-degree kidnapping.
The DPD sent out a tweet just before 7 p.m. MT stating the goalie had voluntarily turned himself in. Warneke said Varlamov came to the department around 6 p.m. MT. He remains in the Denver County jail with no bond. He will be in court Thursday morning.
There is no update on who else is invilved other than someone that had “an intimate relationship” with Varlamov.
The team issued a statement:
“The Colorado Avalanche organization is aware of the allegations concerning Semyon Varlamov. At this time, and until the conclusion of this investigation, the Avalanche organization will have no further comment on this situation.”.
