Colorado Avalanche starting goaltender Semyon Varlamov was arrested on Wednesday on domestic violence charges.

Colorado Avalanche starting goaltender Semyon Varlamov was arrested on Wendesday on domestic violence charges. 

According to Ryan Parker and Nick Groke of the Denver Post, the charges include second-degree kidnapping and third-degree assault. The first charge is a Class 4 felony which may result in two to six years in prison. "Class 4 felony kidnapping is defined by taking someone and moving them to another place without their consent," per Parker and Groke. 

Varlamov surrendered to authorities at around 6 p.m. local time and is being held without bail. He is due for a court hearing at 10 a.m. on Oct. 31. He refused to speak with the Denver Post. His head coach, Patrick Roy, had no comment. 

The Avalanche released a statment regarding the incident.

"The Colorado Avalanche organization is aware of the allegations concerning Semyon Varlamov. At this time, and until the conclusion of the investigation, the Avalanche organization will have no further comment on this situation."  

The NHL also released a statement of its own. 

"The League is aware of the situation involving Semyon Varlamov. We will not comment unless or until we have a fuller understanding of all the facts and circumstances related to the legal charges that have been filed." 

Local authorities divulged few details about Varlamov's arrest, other than the facts that he is alone in his cell because of his celebrity status and the incident "involved someone he had an intimate relationship with," per USA Today Sports. 

Sgt. Steve Warneke of the Denver Police Department emphasized the importance of each criminal prosecution.

"I don't know what happens once they get to Denver Sheiff's, if they do any particulars for high profile, in regards to keeping them safe.

"I do know we consider every criminal prosecution equally important. We're concerned about the rights of the victim, the rights of everybody involved. Our goal every time is to provide everybody with a fair and balanced opportunity to go through the judicial system without corrupting that through releasing things that could jeopardize any sort of criminal case." 

The 25-year-old, Russian-born Varlamov began his NHL career with the Washington Capitals in 2008. He was traded to Colorado in 2011. At the time of his arrest, he was 7-1 in games he started for the Avalanche (10-1) this season. 

Varlamov had been scheduled to start against the Dallas Stars on Friday. Should he not be available, Roy is expected to turn to his backup, Jean-Sebastien Giguere.

NHL passes first new domestic violence test

Oct 20 2014 12:15pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

The indefinite suspension came within hours of Slava Voynov’s arrest. Gary Bettman and his security staff had no time to piece together what happened, but they also had no choice once they learned that the Los Angeles Kings defenceman was facing domestic violence charges in California. Memories of the NFL’s botched handling of the Ray Rice spousal abuse case are still fresh for everyone in professional sports. Bettman had surely observed ho ...
