Varlamov hires new lawyer, pushes court date to Dec. 2

Nov 12, 2013, 6:55 PM EDT


Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov hired a new attorney and pushed his court date to Dec. 2, the Denver Post reports. Adrian Dater tweets that his new lawyer is named Saskia A. Jordan.

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.

    On A Monday I was arrested
    On A Tuesday they locked me in the jail
    On A Wednesday my trial was attested
    On A Thursday they said guilty and the judge’s gavel fell
    I got stripes, stripes around my shoulders
    I got chains, chains around my feet
    I got stripes, stripes around my shoulders
    And them chains, them chains, they’re ’bout to drag me down

    On a Monday I got my striped britches
    On a Tuesday got my ball and chain
    On a Wednesday I’m working digging ditches
    On a Thursday Lord I begged ’em not to knock me down again

    On A Monday my momma came to see me
    On A Tuesday they caught me with a file
    On A Wednesday I’m down in solitary
    On A Thursday Lord I start on bread and water for a while

    I Got Stripes — Stripes Around My Shoulders
    I Got Chains — Chains Around My Feet
    I Got Stripes — Stripes Around My Shoulders
    And Them Chains — Them Chains They’re About To Drag Me down

        Oh, well all I know is that one or both have multiple handles which seems dishonest and is why I never respond to anything either of them say.

        lol valoisvipers is in this conspiracy too. i got real confused when somebody with the name valoisjoeyblomfeld, or w/e it was, jumped in during the lockout.

        I thought so. I’ve mentioned it myself in the past too. I just noticed that when one got banned, they all disappeared. And then reappeared together months later.

    I could be wrong, but I think that headline is misleading. Yes Varlamov hired a new lawyer, but I think the court date has been pushed back because the police haven’t presented a case to the DAs office yet.
