The Colorado Avalanche signed goaltender Semyon Varlamov to a five-year, $29.5 million extension on Jan. 30.

The Colorado Avalanche signed goaltender Semyon Varlamov to a five-year extension on Jan. 30. 

The Avalanche issued a press release about Varlamov's new deal on their official website on the same day: 

"The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed goaltender Semyon Varlamov to a five-year contract extension through the 2018-19 season."

The same update also quotes Avalanche executive vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic, who lauds the impact the young Varlamov has made on the team.

"Undoubtedly, Semyon has been an impact player for us this season. At only 25 years old, he is entering the prime of his career and he wants to be part of the franchise moving forward.

"We are very excited to have to come to terms with him and the fact that he has agreed to a five-year extension demonstrates his commitment to the Avalanche and what we're trying to accomplish." 

USA Today Sports' Mike Brehm reports the extension is worth $29.5 million with an average annual cap hit of $5.9 million. He is set to earn $6.25 million, $6 million, $5.75 million and $5.5 million in the succeeding years. 

It's a significant raise from the $3 million he's currently earning. 

Varlamov then spoke with The Denver Post's Mike Chambers after a 5-4 victory -- his career-high 27th win -- over the visiting Minnesota Wild at the Pepsi Center on Jan. 30.

"Great news for me. I think the biggest day of my life, happiest. I'm happy. I want to say thank you to the whole organization, Colorado Avalanche, to give me a chance to play for this team. 

"Thanks to my teammates. I think they play very well for me. That's why I signed the contract.

"I don't think I played that well the first two years (with the Avs)...Thank God the right people (joined) the team during the summer. (Avalanche head coach) Patrick (Roy) and especially (goaltenders coach) Francois Allair. Those guys helped me a lot, changed my game. I want to say thanks to those guys and thanks to my teammates again."

According to Chambers, Varlamov becomes the third active Avalanche player who signed a contract extension before his original deal was set to expire. The first two were left wing Gabe Landeskog and center Matt Duchene.

Chambers also notes the nine Colorado players who are impending free agents: forwards Paul Stastny, Ryan O'Reilly, Jamie McGinn, John Mitchell and Marc-Andre Cliche; defensemen Corey Sarich, Andre Benoit, and Tyson Barrie and Varlamov's backup at goaltender, Jean-Sebastien Giguere. 

Varlamov will join forces with Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets as the goaltenders of Russia in the upcoming 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi next month, per Brehm. 

The 6'2", 209-pound Varlamov is currently in his sixth NHL season. He has also played for the Washington Capitals and has registered a 94-67 record with career averages of 2.58 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 190 games through Jan. 30, according to ESPN stats.
