According to Adrian Dater of The Denver Post, Colorado Avalanche Goalie Semyon Varlamov left practice on Tuesday with an ankle injury. The practice was part of the Francois Allaire camp in Verbier Switzerland. The injury seems quite unsettling to Colorado fans.

The information had originally been presented as a tweet by journalist Michael Roth, which can be found here. Much to the relief of the fans of the up-and-coming team, it is not a serious injury. Adrian Dater inquired further about the issue with the Avalanche, and they have claimed Varlamov's injury is "very minor". The team seems confident that he will return to the ice within days. The Avalanche are not concerned that it will affect his training.

Varlamov, 26, had a tremendous season with the Avalanche. He started 63 games, coming out with 41 wins. He led the team into their first playoffs campaign since 2010, which ended in the first round in a loss to the Minnesota Wild. Varlamov was a finalist for the Vezina trophy, with an overall goals against average of 2.41 and a save percentage of 0.927.
