Avalanche’s Goaltender Excited for the Season

Avs_Goalie_2013DENVER — Like a crafty magician or a master chef, professional athletes can be wary when it comes to sharing any of their trade secrets.

At least, that’s the approach being taken by Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov, whose work with new goalie coach Francois Allaire has been paying off in the preseason.

“I’m working a lot with Francois and I’m trying to do things correctly,” Varlamov said. “I can’t say what I’m doing [differently]. I don’t want to tell everybody how I’m going to play.”

After posting a career-best 26 wins in 2011-12, his first season with the Avalanche, Varlamov slumped badly last season during 2012-13 that he and his teammates would just as soon forget.
