Avalanche rookie goaltender has a good hockey dog on his mask

What a solid way to immortalize man’s best friend. The Avalanche aren’t a very good hockey team. They’ve been so bad that they’ve shut down starting goaltender Semyon Varlamov for the rest of the season after hip surgery. Colorado will likely be in the running for the league’s worst record this year, but rookie goaltender Spencer Martin is in the running for the NHL’s best mask. Why? Because it features a dog!DOGE HELMETpic.twitter. ...

From the Rampage Desk: Week 16 - Reign

From the Rampage Desk: Week 16 - Reign

The beloved Rampage finish off January with a pair of games against the Pacific leading Ontario Reign. If the Avs have any decent interdepartmental communication structure at all they should know what the Reign are going to do before they do. Amateur scouting has been observing Ontario very closely for the last few weeks, the speculation is for trade purposes. Roster Report - Spencer Martin was returned to the Rampage after Wednesday’s game, perhaps for the last time. Semyon Varlamov had season-ending surgery Thursday so unless the Avs acquire a goalie or decide to use Jeremy Smith...

Varlamov Out For the Season

Varlamov Out For the Season

After rumors from Russia overnight told of Avs goalie Semyon Varlamov undergoing season-ending surgery to repair a chronic groin issue, the Avs have confirmed that this is indeed the case. They also describe it as “hip surgery” for what it’s worth. The team expects Calvin Pickard and rookie Spencer Martin to backstop the Avs for the rest of the season. A couple things this complicates or even uncomplicates. It’s doubtful that the expansion team in Vegas will take a chance on Varly (it’s rumored they had no interest anyway) so he can be exposed and Calvin Pickard protected in...
