Hurricanes GM Ron Francis expects Alexander Semin (wrist) to be ready for training camp based on the information he's been given.

"My understanding was that he was coming back to train," Francis said. "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." A report surfaced about a week-and-a-half ago that Semin hadn't fully recovered yet from off-season wrist surgery, but Francis' optimism is a much better sign.

Alexander Semin is reportedly still not fully recovered from offseason wrist surgery.

Semin had trouble with his wrist for the entirety of last season and his played clearly suffered as a result. While the team has yet to express any concern publicly about his lengthy recovery process, it's fair to be at least a little worried that his rehab continues. Until he gets a clean bill of health, proceed with caution on the talented winger.

Apr 6 - 2:35 AM

Alexander Semin missed his second straight contest on Thursday because of an illness.

Semin has 22 goals and 42 points in 62 games this season. Carolina won't play on Friday, so Semin will have a bit more time to recover before he's forced to potentially miss another game.
Apr 4 - 9:40 AM

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.
Apr 2 - 8:41 AM

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.

Alexander Semin scored once and added an assist on Saturday in a 5-4 loss to New Jersey.

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.
