Semyon Varlamov News
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov (lower body) is on target to return to action Thursday on the road versus the Montreal Canadiens. The veteran hasn't appeared since suffering his injury in the first period of a Jan. 2 overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche, one of his former teams. It's been a rock-solid season for Varlamov, who owns a 2.78 goals-against average and a stellar .918 save percentage across 14 outings (13 starts), going 6-4-2 in the process. Additionally, his 6.12 goals saved above average ranks 13th of 67 qualified netminders, as per Hockey Reference. Ilya Sorokin has started all 10 games for the Isles during Varlamov's absence, while Ken Appleby was returned to the AHL when Varlamov was activated off Injured Reserve on Monday.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov has resumed skating as he works his way back from a lower-body injury, according to head coach Lane Lambert. The veteran left a Jan. 2 game against the Colorado Avalanche after just 14:52 due to the injury and has not appeared since. The ailment interrupted what has been a nice season for the 35-year-old who sports a 2.78 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage across 14 appearances (13 starts), going 6-4-2 in that time. His 6.03 goals saved above average ranks 17th of 68 qualified goaltenders, as per Hockey Reference. Not only has Ilya Sorokin started all seven games so far in Varlamov's absence, the Russian netminder has made 12 consecutive starts while backup Ken Appleby has yet to see any game action.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov couldn't finish Tuesday's game against Colorado, exiting the contest with an undisclosed injury in the first period. He stopped 11 of 12 shots in an eventual 5-4 overtime loss. The veteran netminder only recently missed a game with an unspecified injury. It was the 13th start of the year for the Russian, who has posted a 6-4-2 record behind Ilya Sorokin. Ken Appleby filled the backup duties last week in a game against Washington when Varlamov wasn't available. He'll likely be brought back into the mix if Varlamov has to miss time.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov made it back-to-back shutouts for himself with a 32-save effort in Thursday's 3-0 road win over the Capitals. Varlamov needed to wait until Oct. 21 to make his season debut, and it didn't go well, as he suffered a 3-1 defeat against Buffalo, but the veteran netminder has since been perfect with his work. He's the first goaltender in franchise history to log back-to-back shutouts at age 35 or older. Varlamov has a tough time getting a look by the Islanders due to the presence of Ilya Sorokin, but he's been fantastic for the team and could get some extra action in the upcoming games after becoming only the third goalie this season with multiple shutouts.
