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.

Dec 8 - 7:01 PM

Alexander Semin's goal on Thursday was his 500th career point.

Semin has 233 goals and 267 assists in 598 career contests. At times he's played like an elite forward, but there have also been seasons like his current one where he's severely underperformed. He has just six points in 20 contests this season and given his history, we can't trust him to bounce back.
Dec 5 - 10:15 AM

Alexander Semin scored against his former squad on Thursday night, notching a third period goal against Washington, but it was not enough to stave off a 2-1 loss.

Semin scored 84 points in 72 games as a Capital in 2009-2010, but has flat out lost his elite after his first season in Carolina. Semin's goal was his first of the season, amounting for six points in 20 games thus far.

Alexander Semin will miss Saturday afternoon's game against the Boston Bruins because of an upper body injury.

The 30-year-old has been a big disappointment for the Hurricanes this season. Semin has five assists in in 13 games. He should be considered day-to-day right now.
Nov 15 - 12:17 PM

Alexander Semin had no points or shots on goal in his return to the Hurricanes' lineup on Tuesday.

Semin was also limited to 12:28 minutes of ice time despite being put on the team's top line. If Hurricanes coach Bill Peters was hoping that having Semin sit might spark him then so far it hasn't worked.
Nov 5 - 10:18 AM

Alexander Semin will be back in the Hurricanes' lineup on Tuesday.

Semin spent two games in the press box. He can't be completely written off as the Hurricanes have made a long-term commitment to him and are likely to continue to give him first-line minutes. At the same time, he is far from a safe bet to bounce back this season.
Nov 4 - 12:54 PM

Alexander Semin may draw back into the lineup on Tuesday.

He was back with Eric Staal and Jiri Tlusty during Monday's practice. "I think we'll go with that moving forward," said coach Bill Peters. "... That line has to be a line at some point that is very productive and will be a line, when we go on the road, that (opponents) have to pay attention to and possibly match up with their No. 1 line or checking line. It gives us the opportunity to see if they can establish the chemistry that had in the past. If (Semin) plays, that's the spot I want to play him in. We don't want guys sitting out for an extended period of time. There's guys we think can come in and make us better if they play the way they're capable of." Semin has been a healthy scratch for the past two games.
