The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - February 25th, 2014

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

Varlamov is ready to move on from the Olympics.

The Russian goalie played three games at the Sochi Game, but the team was knocked out of the tournament in the quarterfinals with a 3-1 loss to Finland. Varlamov was 2-1, including the quarterfinal loss in which he was pulled seven minutes into the second period.

"The Olympics is over. I need to leave behind the result," Varlamov said after practice at Family Fun Center. "I'm not going to think about the Olympics right now. We have so many things to do here right now with the NHL season coming. I can tell you I'm looking forward to playing in the playoffs this year."

If a parent wants a child to play hockey in Ontario, they will need to complete a course.

Hockey parents will have to complete a new "Respect in Sport" training program if they want their kids to get on the ice in Ontario.

Calling the online certification course "Canada’s leading online bullying, abuse, harassment and negligence prevention program for parents, coaches, and community leaders," the Ontario Minor Hockey Association said parents will be required to complete the training for the 2014-15 season.

Right now, officials such as coaches, managers and trainers must complete a similar leadership program. Next season, at least one parent or guardian of a child registered in minor hockey in the OMHA will have to do the one-hour Internet training tailored to parents, as a condition of enrolment.
