Alexander will be in the press box Monday night in Toronto.

Semin has been a work in progress ever since he signed a multi-year contract with the 'Canes. He has only played in 26 games this season, picking up just a single goal and seven assists. It's been a mighty fall for the former 40 goal scorer.

Alexander Semin has only one goal and seven assists this season.

Semin signed a five year/$35 million deal after the 2013-14 season and that has certainly not worked out for the Hurricanes as they have made him a healthy scratch on numerous occasions this season. He still has three years remaining and he could be a candidate for a buy-out at the end of the season.

Alex Semin, Andrej Nestrasil, and John-Michael Liles will all be healthy scratches in Ottawa on Saturday night.

Carolina is playing in the second of a back-to-backs, so Coach Peters wants to get this oft-injured trio some rest. At this point, you want to have something positive to say about Semin in particular, but he's simply not producing. Let someone else pick up the pill.

Alexander Semin will skate to the right of Riley Nash and Jeff Skinner on Carolina's third line Thursday night against Buffalo.

Skinner is the only recommendable option of the three, but if you're looking for a buy-low and possibly high-reward pick up, Semin is your man. He's scored over 20 goals in each full-length season in his now nine-season career.

The Carolina Hurricanes have activated Alexander Semin (lower body) off the injured reserve list.

The move occurred after the Rangers game on Saturday so Semin is slated to play on Sunday when the Hurricanes and Rangers play the back end of the home-and-home series. Semin has been a huge disappointment this season with only six points as he has also been a healthy scratch from time-to-time. Put him in your lineup if that is what you would normally do.

Alexander Semin (lower body) took part in an optional skate on Wednesday.

Semin isn't expected to return on Thursday. It's hard to say where Semin will play even when he is healthy. He's logged a lot of minutes alongside Eric Staal in the past, but Semin's play this season doesn't justify that assignment. He has just six points in 21 contests in 2014-15.
