DENVER (AP) - Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov surrendered to Denver police on an arrest warrant on charges of kidnapping and third-degree assault in what authorities are calling a domestic violence incident.

Police released few details about the case Wednesday night during a brief news conference and declined to elaborate, other than to say it involved someone who Varlamov was in an intimate relationship with.

Sgt. Steve Warneke said the 25-year-old Russian goalie went to police Wednesday at about 6 p.m.

The Avalanche said in a statement they are aware of the allegations but wouldn't comment further until the conclusion of the investigation.

Acquired from Washington in a 2011 trade, Varlamov is 7-1 this season with a 1.76 goals-against average. On Sunday night, he made 24 saves a 3-2 home victory over Winnipeg.
