Semyon Varlamov‘s attorney says his client is doing “well” and that the matter of his arrest on allegations of domestic violence will be settled in court.

“My client has not had his day in court, and he will receive his day in court, and we will defend the matter in court,” said Jack Rotole, per Denver Post reporter Kieran Nicholson.

Varlamov, the 25-year-old starting goalie for the Colorado Avalanche, spent the night in jail after turning himself in to police yesterday.

Varlamov’s bond was reportedly set at $5,000. Rotole said prior to today’s hearing that he expected his client to be released from jail on bond.

The court also apparently granted Varlamov permission to travel. The Avs play Friday in Dallas.

Varlamov’s agent, Paul Theofanous, said early today in a statement to “My client Semyon Varlamov is completely innocent of all of these charges.”

    He can travel? Dang it! I dropped him in fantasy already for SG!

    I wonder to what degree of a distraction this will bring to Avs play on the ice? Or more specifically Varly’s play in net, despite the allegations against him, he’s been pretty lights out so far this year

      Depends on the coaches and how the organization handles it. I’d guess they’ll have a meeting to settle the young guys down and air any questions.

    I deem the above picture of Varlamov to be suitably unsettling, given the allegations against him.

      agreed. pretty psycho look.

      Dude,nothing has been proven yet! so before you all judge wait until too the truth comes out! Women are psycho too,She could of beat herself up for all we know….(You know varlamov has millions of dollars) and the pic above…who cares! it”s hockey he”s not supposed too act all lovey duvey

        Oh my god Corey, take a deep breath.

        Nobody’s saying we should throw Varlamov in jail without a trial, or take to the streets and seek vigilante justice.. the allegations are pretty disturbing though and the picture Brough posted above suits that tone nicely.

        That being said your bizarre comments about women and the page you’ve taken straight from the MRA playbook suggests that even if there was proof laid out for all to see you’d find a way to deny it.

    I’m tired of reading about this moron. Enough of him. He’s a bad guy.

    • coreyb11 - Oct 31, 2013 at 3:41 PM

      You don’t know if he did anything dude. “innocent until proven guilty”

    • magicrat13 - Oct 31, 2013 at 6:53 PM

      we know the feeling…

    Anyone know what the NHL policy is regarding whether or not he will be allowed to play?

    • zacmelvinmcnutt - Oct 31, 2013 at 2:09 PM

      My guess is that he’ll be allowed to play seeing as these are still nothing more than allegations and he has not been charged or convicted of anything yet

    Is it just me, or is $5,000 just a wee bit on the low side? Why? Judge an AV fan? No charges to file? I don’t think we’ll ever know what happened. Was she going psycho on him and he was defending himself? Or is he completely psycho and went off on her? I think they’d be putting the hammer down on him if there was much of a case, regardless of his status in my opinion.

    • hockey412 - Oct 31, 2013 at 3:08 PM

      I’d agree, especially since one of the charges is a felony, but also, can you really detain someone without charges being filed? I am not up to speed on this stuff, and I hope never to be.

    • hockeyflow33 - Oct 31, 2013 at 4:04 PM

      Do you understand what bail is in place for?

  7. jacketsfan7 - Oct 31, 2013 at 3:43 PM

    If hes innocent
    Why’d he turn himself in?

    • ibieiniid - Oct 31, 2013 at 3:49 PM

      that’s the dumbest thing i think i’ve ever heard.

      you’re innocent of a crime. you find out there’s a warrant for your arrest. you run to Mexico.

      see how dumb that sounds?

  8. Plumber 65 - Oct 31, 2013 at 5:52 PM

    So his Russian girlfriend is telling all these beating stories ?? If it’s true, that’s a if, hang his a** but until then I’d consider her a sic case.
