Alexander Semin LW CAR 1 Month

Semin was held off the scoresheet for the fifth consecutive game during Friday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers. He registered just a single shot on goal in 17:13 of ice time.

Semin has just two assists in seven games and looks utterly disinterested most nights. Or maybe he's just lost without linemate Eric Staal, who has missed the past five games with an upper-body injury. Either way, it's awfully hard to recommend Semin for fantasy purposes these days, given both his own struggles and those of the Hurricanes in general. You won't get much in a trade for him right now, so stash him on your fantasy bench and hope things somehow turn around for him.

Semin picked up two assists in Saturday's 4-3 defeat to the Islanders.

Both of Semin's helpers came via the power play and were of the secondary variety. The veteran winger ended training camp at full health following offseason wrist surgery, but it seems highly unlikely that he'll ever return to the 70-point production he achieved three times during his prime years with Washington.

Semin (undisclosed) was present at the Hurricanes' pregame skate and looks like he'll play in Friday's exhibition against the Sabres, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

There was some concern Semin may have aggravated his surgically-repaired wrist after he was removed early from Thursday's practice, but apparently there's nothing to worry about here. He's set to play on the first line with Jiri Tlusty and Eric Staal on Friday.

Semin left Thursday's practice early with an undisclosed ailment, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Coach Bill Peters declined to provide an update of Semin's condition after the practice, but at the very least, look for the Hurricanes to sit him out of Friday's preseason game against the Sabres. Semin was already returning from offseason wrist surgery, and in light of this latest injury and his downturn in production last season, it's tough to imagine him justifying his auction price or average draft position.

Semin will be held out of the Canes' second preseason game Tuesday against the Sabres, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Semin had offseason surgery on his wrist, and the move to limit his preseason game action by new coach Bill Peters is reportedly just a cautionary move. So far, there has been no word of Semin re-injuring his wrist in training camp, so we fully expect him to start the regular season on schedule at this point.

GM Ron Francis has indicated that he expects Semin (wrist) will be ready to go for training camp, NHL.com reports.

There was speculation about a month ago that Semin hit a wall in his recovery from offseason wrist surgery, but the winger has apparently experienced no lingering issues to this point. After signing a five-year, $35 million extension prior to last season, Semin's 22 goals and 20 assists in 65 games qualified as a disappointment. He'll probably need to get back to producing around 60 points per season in order to justify the Hurricanes' huge financial outlay.

Semin's recovery from wrist surgery has been slower than expected and he is returning to the U.S. to complete his rehabilitation, reports Dmitry Chesnokov.

The Canes had hoped Semin would be ready for camp, but it's not clear if this slow recovery will keep him out when camp opens in mid-September. He's entering year two of a five-year, $35 million deal with the Canes, who are counting on him to be a key cog in their machine this season.

Alexander Semin will have wrist surgery now that the season is over, according to Carolina GM Jim Rutherford.

He returned to the lineup on Thursday from a two-game absence because of an illness, but didn't play in the team's last two matches of the regular season. He will use the off-season to recover from the procedure. Semin produced 22 goals and 42 points in 65 games.
