Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin is not expected to play Thursday.
Insight: Semin has struggled so far this season, before missing the last two games. He's still without a goal after hitting the back of the net 22 times last season and has five assists in 13 games.
 
11/18/2014 3:01:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin is questionable for Tuesday's game against Dallas while dealing with an upper body injury.
Insight: Semin has struggled so far this season, before missing the last two games. He's still without a goal after hitting the back of the net 22 times last season and has five assists in 13 games.
 
11/9/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin had an assist Saturday, but is still searching for his first goal of the season.
Insight: Semin's inconsistency continues to plague him and the team, and he now has only 4 points and a rough -7 rating overall. Owners should not expect him to get going anytime soon.
 
10/31/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin will most likely be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
Insight: He has been an inconsistent player throughout his career, and head coach Bill Peters stated that Semin "isn't playing with the pace the league is at." That is a pretty big shot given, but it is warranted, as Semin has only two points, and is -7 through eight games. Carolina is paying him $7 million annually through the 2017-18 season.
 
10/11/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin posted his first two points of the season assisting on two of Jiri Tlusty's three goals.
Insight: Semin used to be a 75-80 point a season guy in Washington and posted 44 points in 44 games back in 2012 for Carolina so we know he can still do it. The real question is can he stay healthy.
 
9/23/2014 8:18:00 PM
Description: It is hard to know what to expect from Hurricanes winger Alexander Semin this season.
Insight: Semin scored 44 points in the same number of games in his first season with Carolina, but scored just 42 points in 65 games last season. There is a good chance that a concussion in December of 2013 severely slowed his production. New head coach Bill Peters has jumbled the lines in preseason, so there is no guarantee that Semin again plays on the top line. If he is on the top line, Semin is a solid mid-round pick otherwise, there is some risk involved.
 
8/21/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes GM Ron Francis told CarolinaHurricanes.com that he expects forward Alexander Semin to be ready when training camp begins.
Insight: "He's training, according to his agent, a couple times a day and doing therapy on the wrist as well. There were no issues with the wrist, as far as I was told," Francis said. A report surfaced about a week-and-a-half ago that Semin hadn't fully recovered yet from off-season surgery to his wrist, which had been nagging him since the beginning of last year. Francis expects that to be a thing of the past.
 
4/14/2014 7:59:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin will undergo wrist surgery, according to nhl.com.
Insight: Semin (22 G, 20 A) missed the final two games due to the injury. The 30-year-old had two fewer points in 65 games this season than he had in 44 games in 2012-13.
 
4/11/2014 7:30:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin (undisclosed) will miss the final two games of the season, according to Mike Maniscalco of wralsportsfan.com.
Insight: Semin (22 G, 20 A) has two fewer points in 65 games this season than he had in 44 games last season. No word on what's keeping him out.
 
4/1/2014 7:47:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin missed Tuesday's game due to an illness.
Insight: Semin (22 G, 20 A) has two fewer points in 62 games this season than he had in 44 games last season. He'll probably be back Thursday against Dallas.
 
3/21/2014 10:47:00 PM
Description: Alexander Semin netted both Hurricanes goals Friday in a loss to Chicago.
Insight: It's Semin's third multi-goal effort of the season. He's now logged at least 22 minutes in each of his last six contests. Semin and the Canes will be back in action Saturday night in Winnipeg.
 
Hot3/13/2014 9:48:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes right wing Alexander Semin extended his points streak to six games with a goal and an assist Thursday against the Sabres.
Insight: Team Russia's disappointing finish in the Sochi Olympics apparently lit a fire under Semin, who has recorded nine points (four goals) in eight games since the NHL resumed its schedule. He has raised his points total to 38 in 53 games.
 
Hot3/8/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes right wing Alexander Semin extended his points streak to four games with a goal and an assist Saturday at New Jersey.

Insight: Semin's scoring per game is down from last season when he put up a one-point-per-game average.
 
2/25/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Canes right wing Alexander Semin scored his 15th goal of the season Tuesday against Buffalo.
Insight: Semin is scoring goals and shooting just as much as he did last season but his assists are way behind, which explains why he has just 30 points in 46 games after registering 44 in 44 last season.
 
Hot1/23/2014 10:03:00 PM
Description: Canes right wing Alexander Semin kept his scoring streak alive with two more goals Thursday in a win over Buffalo.
Insight: He's scored at least once in each of his last four games. Before his current hot streak, Semin had just six goals in his previous 34 games.
 
1/19/2014 7:50:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes winger Alex Semin has scored three goals on 13 shots the last two games.
Insight: With nine goals in 36 games, Semin isn't far off from last season's pace of 0.30 goals per game, but he only has 12 assists (0.33 apg) after picking up 0.70 assists per game last season.
 
1/18/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Alexander Semin anchored the Canes' offense with two goals on Saturday.
Insight: Both goals came in the third period and both were assisted by Eric Staal. Semin's second tally was his fourth career shorthanded goal and his first since the 2010-11 season.
 
12/23/2013 9:43:00 PM

12/12/2013 7:12:00 PM
Description: Carolina right wing Alexander Semin has been activated from injured reserve. SOURCE: Chip Alexander, Raliegh News & Observer
