Varlamov unlikely to move

The Colorado Avalanche is expected to make a number of changes this off-season, but one of them isn't likely to occur between the pipes.

Goaltender Semyon Varlamov, recovering from hip surgery, has two years left on his contract after this season and comes with an annual $5.9 million salary cap.

Denver Post columnist Terry Frei recently reported that he does not believe trading Varlamov is realistic, given his contract, while exposing him in the expansion draft likely won't result in him being plucked by the Vegas Golden Knights.

Varlamov, 28, has struggled these last two seasons, having posted a 6-17-0 record with a 3.38 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage in 24 games with the Avs this season.

Avs GM Joe Sakic will continue to have trade talks with other teams about forwards Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog, among others, this off-season, and while he could have discussions centered around Varlamov, such a move remains unlikely.
