DALLAS - Semyon Varlamov is the starting goalie for the Colorado Avalanche against the Dallas Stars two days after he spent the night in jail while prosecutors considered whether he should be charged with assaulting his girlfriend.

The 25-year-old Varlamov was arrested on suspicion of second-degree kidnapping and third-degree assault. He turned himself in on Wednesday, and on Thursday, Varlamov was released on a $5,000 bond during a court appearance in Denver.

Varlamov was allowed to travel with the team for Friday night's game but is ordered to stay away from girlfriend Evgenia Vavrinyuk, among other restrictions.

Varlamov is 7-1 with a 1.76 goals against average and .945 save percentage for the Central Division-leading Avalanche.
