On Sunday, the Colorado Avalanche held their fan appreciation night at Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. Just like the Capitals, each Avs player gave the jersey off his back to one adoring fan.
After making 30 saves in 65 minutes of work (plus a shootout), a very tired Semyon Varlamov was the first to give his jersey away.

After giving the fan a hug, he signed her new jersey, and– according to her son– Varly had only one thing to say: “Sorry it’s so sweaty.”

He probably didn’t have to apologize.
