Varlamov To Start For Avs After Being Released From Jail

Varlamov_Avalanche_2013One day after he was released from jail, Semyon Varlamov will be in goal for the Colorado Avalanche.

The Denver Post reports that Varlamov, arrested on Wednesday on allegations of domestic violence, will be starting on Friday when the Avs take on the Stars in Dallas.

The decision to start Varlamov under these new circumstances, though, will likely come under scrutiny.

On Friday, Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla wrote that Colorado should keep Varlamov off the ice/away from the team until his legal matters are sorted out.
