DENVER -

Prosecutors are dropping a domestic violence case against Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov, saying they have new information leading them to believe they couldn't win a conviction.

The decision was announced Friday.
    
Varlamov was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault after his girlfriend told police he knocked her down, stomped on her chest and dragged her by her hair at their apartment on Oct. 30.
    
Lynn Kimbrough, a spokeswoman for the DA, declined to offer specifics on the new information that led prosecutors to drop the case.
    
She says the information surfaced from additional interviews with witnesses.
    
The 25-year-old Varlamov has been free on $5,000 bond and has been traveling and playing with the team.
