Semyon Varlomov Is Ready To Be #1 Goaltender For Russia

semyon_varlamov_2013Despite third-degree assault charges hanging over his head, Colorado goalie Semyon Varlamov remains fully in the mix to be the starting Russian netminder at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.

Just ask his head coach.

“He’s probably going to be the No. 1 goalie for them in the Olympics, and he’ll be ready for it, no doubt in my mind,” Patrick Roy told the Denver Post. “If I was the Russian coach, I would use him, but I’m not.”

Varlamov was one of the five goalies invited to this summer’s orientation camp, along with Evgeni Nabokov, Sergei Bobrovsky and a pair of KHL netminders, Konstantin Barulin and Vasily Koschechkin.
