Avalanche G Semyon Varlamov sued over alleged domestic abuse
Charges against Varlamov over the incident were dropped last year after prosecutors felt the case could not be proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
A copy of the lawsuit, which includes allegations that Varlamov abused Evgeniya Vavrinyuk in 2012 and 2013, was obtained by NBCSports.
The league has not suspended Varlamov.
