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.

4/11/2014 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.

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.

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.

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
