The Sports NetworkDecember 2, 2013 

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Colorado Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov was in court Monday for an advisement hearing related to a domestic violence charge involving his girlfriend.

In a brief hearing, Varlamov answered questions from a judge and left without comment with his lawyers.

The 25-year-old Varlamov was charged last month with one count of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, for allegedly attacking his girlfriend at their Denver home on Oct. 30.

Varlamov is free on $5,000 bond and has been traveling and playing with the team.

Varlamov's next court hearing is Jan. 22, 2014, where he will have the opportunity to enter a plea.

The Russian has compiled a 13-6-0 record with a 2.12 goals-against average and a .933 save percentage this season, his third with the Avalanche.
