 DENVER (AP) - Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov (var-LAH'-mawf) is returning to court to face a misdemeanor assault charge after his girlfriend said he attacked her.
The 25-year-old Varlamov is scheduled to appear at a hearing Monday in Denver.
The girlfriend told investigators he attacked her on Oct. 30 in her apartment. According to an arrest affidavit, she said he knocked her down with a kick, stomped on her chest and dragged her by her hair. She also says Varlamov told her he would have beaten her more if they had been in Russia.
Varlamov's attorney hasn't commented. His agent has said he is innocent.
Varlamov is free on $5,000 bond and has been traveling and playing with the team. If convicted, his sentence could range from probation to two years in jail.
