Semyon Varlamov News
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov (lower body) will miss Monday's matchup against Colorado and the team considers him day-to-day. The veteran netminder exited Saturday's 5-2 victory over Vegas late in the game with an injury and hasn't recovered in time for Monday's contest. It's a bad blow for Varlamov, as he had started to get more action lately and performed superbly by going 4-0-1 in five starts. He is 8-3-1 overall for the campaign with a 2.65 goals-against average, a .919 save percentage and one shutout. Varlamov's absence means another start for Ilya Sorokin, who has struggled to perform lately, dropping five straight decisions. Getting back on track against the defending champions won't exactly be as easy as pie either.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov left Saturday's 5-2 win over Vegas late with an undisclosed ailment. He was having a great night with 35 saves on 37 shots, but Ilya Sorokin took over the crease for the final few minutes of the game. Islanders head coach Lane Lambert didn't have an update on Varlamov's condition after the game. The team has a very strong goalie tandem, but Sorokin has struggled lately, so being without Varlamov would be far from ideal. He has dropped only three games in regulation this season and carries an 8-3-1 record. Meanwhile, Sorokin has lost five consecutive starts for the first time in his NHL career and is 10-10-0 for the campaign.
New York Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov had a perfect night at the office Sunday against Chicago, posting a 21-save shutout in a 3-0 win. It's his first shutout of the campaign and the 12th of his career with the club. Only four goaltenders in franchise history have managed more. The Islanders' goalie situation has been intriguing over the last couple of seasons, with Ilya Sorokin arriving from the KHL. Varlamov was clearly outplayed by his younger compatriot last season, but both have played well in 2022-23, and it's likely causing fantasy managers headaches. Varlamov improved to 6-3-0 on Sunday and Sorokin is 10-7-0. He has dropped his last two decisions despite giving up only two goals on both occasions, while Varlamov's recent form includes a 4-1-0 record.
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.
