Varlamov Focusing On Hockey After Domestic Abuse Allegations

Varlamov_Avalanche_2013Semyon Varlamov says he’s focused on hockey, not his personal life.

Waiting to hear if he’ll be charged following his arrest on allegations of domestic abuse and kidnapping, Varlamov told the Denver Post on Wednesday he doesn’t think about the issues swirling over his head.

“Believe me, I don’t think about the situation anymore,” the Avs goalie explained.

Whether it’s related to the arrest or not, Varlamov has struggled since being detained overnight on Oct. 30. His numbers since the arrest — 3-4-0, .912 save percentage, 2.73 GAA — are OK, but way off his stellar opening month statistics, when he went 7-1-0 with a 1.76 GAA and .945 save percentage.
