Technically speaking, Varlamov hasn’t officially been charged with a crime stemming from that Oct. 30 arrest (for a second-degree alleged kidnapping and third-degree assault). That’s because he Denver District Attorney’s Office hasn’t received the case from the police department, according to the Denver Post.
In the meantime, the 25-year-old netminder can continue to travel with the team until at least Dec. 2 – including Tuesday’s game against the Hurricanes in Carolina – while the Post points out that police can use that extension to potentially present a case to Denver’s DA.
Long story short, things are getting pushed back. We’ll see if this situation affects Varlamov and the Avalanche’s season beyond being a distraction.
