Avs Players Moving On
By Richard Gonzalez
Varlamov was originally drafted in the first round (23rd overall) by the Washington Capitals in the 2006 NHL entry draft. The Avalanche acquired him from the Capitals in exchange for a first round and second-round draft pick.
Varlamov played in 389 games with the Avalanche in a span of eight seasons. He also added seven playoff games. He had 183 wins and 21 shutouts with the Avalanche.
The Avalanche brought in another goaltender, in Philipp Grubauer, to eventually take Varlamov’s place. Varlamov played great for half of the games but eventually got outplayed by Grubauer and lost the starting role. Grubauer helped the Avalanche get past the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and solidified himself as the number one goalie.
Varlamov signed a four-year deal with the New York Islanders, Per the New York Islanders. The contract dollar amount has not been disclosed.
Nemeth was originally drafted in the second round (41st overall) by the Dallas Stars in the 2010 NHL entry draft. The Avalanche picked up Nemeth off waivers on Oct. 3, 2017. Nemeth spent the last two years with the Avalanche playing in 142 games, scoring 25 points (four goals and 21 assists). He also had 316 blocks and 203 hits in that span with the Avalanche.
I think something that stands out the most about Nemeth is his fight with former teammate Tyler Seguin. Obviously, there was some drama left in Dallas.
Nemeth signed a two-year, six million dollar deal with the Detroit Redwings.
Lastly, Spencer Martin signed a one-year, 700K contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning, per Cap Friendly. Martin was drafted in the third round (63rd overall) by the Avalanche in the 2013 draft. Martin only played three games with the big club in 2016-17 and suited up for 23 games with the Colorado Eagles last season.
