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.

    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.
