KHL schedule 2012: Lokomotiv Yaroslavl on the ice twice this week

Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov and his Lokomotiv hockey team travel to the far reaches of Russia for two road games this week.

Colorado Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl take the ice twice this coming week in the KHL, facing Barys and Yugra on a current three-game road trip. Varlamov signed with Lokomotiv for the duration of the ongoing NHL lockout, for however long it takes for the NHL and NHLPA to reach an agreement on a new CBA.

Lokomotiv, currently No. 2 in the Western Conference with 25 points, travels first to Kazakhstan to face HC Barys on Monday. The team will next be in Khanty-Mansiysk to take on HC Yugra on Wednesday.

Varlamov has played in two games so far for Lokomotiv, going 1-1 with a .923 save percentage and 2.51 goals-against average. Kolesnik Vitaly is the team's current starting goaltender. Varlamov appeared in 53 games for the Avalanche last season, going 26-24-3 with a 2.59 GAA and .913 save percentage.

Lokomotiv is playing the first season since the disaster of September 2011 when 45 passengers, including players and coaching staff, perished in a plane crash.
