Avs goalie Semyon Varlamov signed a five-year, $29.5 million contract extension before earning his career-high 27th win of the season and finishing a club-record 10-1-1 in January. He is the fourth Avalanche/Nordiques goaltender to win 10 games in a month.
“Great news for me. I think the biggest day of my life, happiest. I’m happy. I want to say thank you the the whole organization, Colorado Avalanche, to give me a chance to play for this team,” Varlamov said after the game. “Thanks to my teammates. I think they play very well for me. That’s why I signed the contract.”
