Top Semyon Varlamov News

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Dazzles in OT win

    Varlamov made 44 saves in a 2-1 overtime win over Vegas on Saturday.

    Varlamov dazzled all night long and especially in OT when he stopped four shots, including a William Carrier penalty shot just 26 seconds in. He also made a highlight-reel save in the third on a 4-on-3 rush during a power play when he reached back with his stick and somehow denied Reilly Smith a gift into an open net. Varlamov hadn't won since December 17 and was 0-3-0 in three starts this month.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Guarding cage Saturday

    Varlamov will guard the home goal versus the Golden Knights on Saturday, Stefen Rosner of NYI Hockey Now reports.

    Varlamov will start the second half of a back-to-back after Ilya Sorokin shut out the Red Wings on Friday. The 34-year-old Varlamov has lost all three of his appearances in January, allowing a combined 10 goals on 83 shots in those outings. The Golden Knights are also playing for the second straight day after losing 4-1 to the Rangers on Friday.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Gives up two in loss

    Varlamov made 36 saves in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Senators.

    Varlamov did what he could to keep his team in this one, but the Islanders couldn't dig out of a 2-0 hole and fell to 1-7-3 over their last 11 games. Both Varlamov and Ilya Sorokin generally give the Islanders a chance to win, but unless the anemic offense in front of them picks things up, it will be hard for the team to work its way back into playoff contention.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: First goalie off Wednesday

    Varlamov was the first goalie to exit the ice Wednesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports, indicating he'll be in goal versus the Senators on the road.

    Varlamov has appeared in just two of the Islanders' last 17 contests, suffering a pair of losses in which he conceded eight goals on 45 shots (.822 save percentage). With a back-to-back against the Red Wings Wings and the Golden Knights on Friday and Saturday, respectively, Varlamov will likely get another start soon.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Beaten by Boston

    Varlamov allowed four goals on 24 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins.

    Varlamov was spotted a 1-0 lead after one period, but he couldn't make it stand up against the team that resides atop the NHL standings. Countryman Ilya Sorokin has earned the majority of playing time in the Islanders' crease, and neither Russian netminder has received much goal support lately.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Slated to start

    Per Andrew Gross of Newsday, Valarmov was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, putting him on track to guard the home goal versus Boston on Wednesday.

    Varlamov struggled in his last start Jan. 6 against the Flames, surrendering four goals on just 21 shots en route to a 4-1 defeat. He'll try to pick up his ninth win of the season in a tough home matchup with a Bruins team that's 13-4-1 on the road this year.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Takes loss in return

    Varlamov allowed four goals on 21 shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Flames.

    Varlamov gave up three of the goals in the first period, and the Islanders' offense -- sans Mathew Barzal (lower body) -- couldn't cover the damage. A lower-body injury cost Varlamov about two weeks, and this return performance didn't give him a great case to eat into Ilya Sorokin's playing time. Varlamov is at 8-4-1 with a 2.75 GAA and a .913 save percentage through 13 starts this season. The Islanders begin a homestand Tuesday versus the Stars.

    Varlamov (lower body) is expected to start on the road against Calgary on Friday, per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan.

    Varlamov, who was activated from the injured reserve list Monday, will make his first start since Dec. 17. He has a 12-8-3 record, 2.65 GAA and .919 save percentage in 12 contests this season.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Set to travel with Islanders

    Varlamov (lower body) will join the Islanders on their four-game road trip, which starts with Sunday's contest against Seattle, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Varlamov's availability for those upcoming four games hasn't been determined yet, but the fact that he'll travel with the Islanders is a good sign. He has an 8-3-1 record a 2.65 GAA and a .919 save percentage in 12 games this season. The 34-year-old isn't an option for Thursday's contest versus Columbus.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Skating on his own

    Varlamov (lower body) was skating with the team Wednesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Varlamov has been out of the lineup since Dec. 16, and Wednesday was the first time he has laced up his skates since the injury. When coach Lane Lambert was asked about the status of Varlamov, all he would say was that he is getting closer to a return. Varlamov will serve as the backup to Ilya Sorokin once he is deemed healthy enough to return.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Placed on injured reserve

    Varlamov (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Dec. 17.

    Varlamov will be eligible to return to action at any time after Thursday's game against Florida. He has yet to resume skating since he was hurt Saturday. Varlamov has been a solid backup to Ilya Sorokin, as he is 8-3-1 with a 2.65 GAA and .919 save percentage.

  • Islanders' Semyon Varlamov: Hasn't resumed skating

    Varlamov (lower body) has yet to resume skating, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The fact that Varlamov has yet to resume skating suggests he'll almost certainly miss Thursday's game versus the Rangers at a minimum. Look for Ilya Sorokin to operate as a workhorse in goal for the Islanders until Varlamov is ready to return.

    Varlamov turned aside 30 shots in regulation and overtime and one of three shootout attempts in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins.

    Boston jumped out to a 2-0 lead early in the first period, but Varlamov settled down and kept the Islanders in the game, eventually earning a point against a Bruins team that remains undefeated in regulation on home ice this season. The veteran netminder is 5-2-1 since the beginning of November, and on the season he sports a 2.68 GAA and .916 save percentage.
