Varly Named NHL's 2nd Star of the Week

Doug Pensinger

The first week of April is in the books and our own netminder locked down 2nd Star honors.

The NHL announced their three stars of the week ending April 6th.  Number Two on said list was our own Semyon Varlamov thanks to his stunning play of late.  From the article:

Varlamov compiled a 3-0-1 record with a 1.42 goals-against average, .950 save percentage and one shutout to help the Avalanche (50-21-7, 107 points) move two points ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks (45-19-15, 105 points) for the No. 2 seed in the Central Division. He opened the week by making 24 saves in a 3-2 overtime win against the Columbus Blue Jackets April 1. Varlamov then made 29 stops, and denied all three shootout attempts he faced, in a 3-2 triumph over the New York Rangers April 3. He followed that up with 31 saves for his second shutout of the season in a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues April 5, before closing the week with 30 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins April 6. The 25-year-old native of Samara, Russia, leads the League with 40 wins this season, matching Patrick Roy's franchise record established in 2000-01. He also places fourth in the NHL with a .927 save percentage and has a 2.41 goals-against average in 62 appearances.

Fellow Stars (not from Dallas) were Edmonton's Taylor Hall with the First Star and the Habs' Max Pacioretty.
