Semyon Varlamov's groin issue has flared up and he'll miss Wednesday's practice as a result.

Colorado doesn't play until Thursday, so it's possible that Varlamov will still be available for that game. That being said, it wouldn't be surprising if he's held out of at least that contest. He's played in three games since returning from a groin injury.

Semyon Varlamov barely broke the .800 marks in a 6-4 loss to the Blackhawks Tuesday night.

Varlamov gave up five goals as he faced only 26 shots to give him a save percentage of .808. One more went into an empty net. As disappointing as that was, it is not his worst outing in a current five-game losing streak; he gave up five goals on only 18 shots against the Maple Leafs December 22.

Semyon Varlamov dropped another game, 3-2 to Nashville on Saturday.

Mark it four losses in a row now with 13 goals against in that span. Today he turned away 26 of 29 shots and even had a 2-0 lead early in the game. And so it goes for Colorado.

Semyon Varlamov allowed three goals on 31 shots to the Ducks in his return to action on Thursday.

It was his first start since December 22nd and was a tough match-up against Anaheim with his team struggling so much in front of him. He hasn't recorded a win since a 51 save effort against Toronto on Dec.11. He's not a must start in any match-up this season with just six wins and a 3.32 GAA to go with a .901 save percentage in 21 starts.

Semyon Varlamov will be between the pipes Thursday versus Anaheim.

He has recovered from his latest groin issue and feels ready to see his first game action since Dec. 22. "Hopefully I can play the rest of the season without any small injuries again," Varlamov said. "I want to play the second half of the season strong without any issues with my health. I want to play better, just try to win games." Colorado has struggled in front of him and he hasn't looked good in the crease either. Varlamov owns a 6-14-0 record with a 3.33 GAA and a .901 save percentage.

Semyon Varlamov (groin) will dress on Friday, but as the backup goaltender.

After that, Colorado will be off for roughly a week, so it will be a little while still before Varlamov gets a start. He has a 6-14-0 record, 3.33 GAA, and .901 save percentage in 21 contests.
Jan 6 - 1:59 PM

Semyon Varlamov (groin) will be available for Friday's game against the New York Islanders.

That doesn't necessarily mean that Varlamov will start in that contest, but at the least he's expected to be on the bench. He last played on Dec. 22. He has a 6-14-0 record, 3.33 GAA, and .901 save percentage in 21 contests.

Semyon Varlamov (groin) isn't traveling with the Avalanche.

Varlamov obviously won't play on Monday in Vancouver and it's doubtful that he'll join the team in time for Wednesday's game in Calgary. The good news is that he has been skating on his own.

Jan 2 - 10:40 AM

Semyon Varlamov (groin) should resume skating in the next few days.

Varlamov's been out since Dec. 22nd with a groin injury, but it sounds like he's making slow progress. "We expect him back on the ice (with the team) in the next couple of days," Bednar said. "He skated a little bit yeterday on his own, and today he’s doing something different. We’re hoping in the next couple of days, he’ll be back out there. He’s feeling better, though."
