Alexander Semin will miss Carolina's last two games of the season because he has a concussion.
He did not practice Wednesday and coach Kirk Muller called it a "maintenance day" at the time, but after Semin didn't skate Thursday morning the Canes bench boss announced that the Russian winger was concussed. Semin fit in well with Carolina this season in a great bounce-back campaign. He registered 13 goals and 44 points in 44 games, which ranks him second on the team in scoring, and he had a plus-14 rating as well. The Canes rewarded him with a five-year contract extension worth $7 million per season at the end of March.
