DENVER (AP) - Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov surrendered to Denver police on an arrest warrant on charges of kidnapping and third-degree assault in what authorities are calling a domestic violence incident.
Police released few details about the case Wednesday night during a brief press conference and declined to elaborate, other than to say it involved someone who Varlamov was in an intimate relationship with.
Sgt. Steve Warneke said the Russian goalie went to police Wednesday at about 6 p.m.
The Avalanche said in a statement they are aware of the allegations but wouldn't comment further until the conclusion of the investigation.
The Avalanche acquired Varlamov a 2011 trade with Washington.
