Canes forward Semin added to Russian Olympic team

Posted January 21

Alexander Semin (28) warms up before the start of the game. The Hurricanes hosted the Ducks on November 15, 2013  at the PNC Center in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Forward Alexander Semin, a native of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, will be the fourth Carolina Hurricane to represent his county in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, the team announced Tuesday. 

Semin joins defenseman Justin Faulk (United States),  defenseman Andrej Sekera (Slovokia) and forward Tuomo Ruutu (Finland) as Hurricanes on Olympic rosters.

Semin, 29, has nine goals and 12 assists in 36 games for Carolina in 2013-14. Semin has represented his country in nine international tournaments, including the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. 

The Hurricanes return to action at 7 p.m. Tuesday night against Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center.

    kheffn I so agree. The Olympics is supposed to bring the world together. These terrorists are unbelievable.

    Dittos. It's terrible that unifying events like this have become so political.

    Good stuff. Well deserved. I hate to say it, but I think this is Russia's year. Home ice with some new big and agile players. Canada will struggle in this one.
