Semyon Varlamov News
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov will sit out Sunday's contest against Toronto with an illness. The veteran netminder has caught a stomach bug and is currently being kept away from the team. Varlamov has put together a 9-15-2 record this season, with six of his wins coming since the start of last month. Ilya Sorokin, who is 25-15-7 for the year, will get his 48th start on Sunday. He's just posted his seventh shutout of the season against Montreal and has some really strong numbers with a 2.29 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage. However, Toronto has lit up a lot of goalies lately, and picking Sorokin for Sunday's action might not be a smart choice for fantasy managers.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov registered his second shutout of the season Friday with a 27-save effort in a 3-0 win over the Rangers. He became the second goalie in league history to have four straight road shutouts against one opponent. Alec Connell did it first with the original Ottawa Senators against the New York Americans all the way back in 1926. This marks Varlamov's third straight victory, and he's now 9-13-2 for the season with a 2.73 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage. The Russian veteran has picked a good time to put in his best performances of the season, as Ilya Sorokin (upper body) is injured and it's unclear when he'll be game ready again. The Islanders officially consider him as day-to-day.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov recorded his first shutout of the season on Tuesday, pushing away 24 shots in a 3-0 victory over Ottawa. The Senators threw most of their shots (13) in Varlamov's way in the opening period but couldn't find a way through and had to settle for another loss when the Islanders scored three goals inside the final 10 minutes of play. Varlamov upped his record to 6-10-2 and now sits on a 2.67 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage for the season. The Russian veteran has collected half of his wins across his last four starts, so he's finally hit some form, and fantasy managers should pay attention.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov stopped 36 shots in the 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night. Only a late first period Kyle Okposo power-play goal kept Varlamov from getting his first shutout of the 2021-22 season. The Russian goaltender came into the night with just one win in eight appearances (1-5-1). The goalie did stop all 28 shots he faced at even strength. That had been an issue at times during the season. Varlamov is now 2-1-1 in his last four starts while yielding just eight goals. Maybe like the Islanders' season, Varlamov's year is turning around as well.
