Alexander Semin missed Tuesday's contest because of an illness.

Semin has 22 goals and 20 assists in 62 games this season. That makes this one of his worst seasons and certainly not worthy of the five-year, $35 million contract he inked. The silver lining is that Semin has improved significantly since his dreadful start to the season and we consequently think he will bounce back in 2014-15.

Alexander Semin found the back of the net in Carolina's 5-4 loss on Tuesday.

Semin got off to a terrible start this season, but he's finishing it on a high note. He has 17 goals and 27 points in 31 games since the start of January. That still brings him up to just 42 points in 2013-14, but we wouldn't be surprised if he does significantly better next season.

Semin has a four game scoring streak and now has 17 goals and 35 points in 51 games. He is worth owning in fantasy leagues that use just points, as he has 11 goals and 17 points in his last 17 games, after a slow start to the season.
