Former Washington Capitals forward Alexander Semin signed a one year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes. The deal will pay Semin $7 million for the year. Semin had 21 goals and 33 assists last season with the Capitals. He has been with the Capitals for all seven of his NHL seasons and he has scored at least 25 goals in six of those seven seasons.
The Carolina Hurricanes are shaping up to be a powerful team this season with newly acquired Jordan Staal and now adding Alexander Semin to the team will give them an unstoppable offense. The Hurricanes are pulling out all the stops by added top forwards like Staal and Semin to their line-up. I can’t wait to see what next season holds for the Hurricanes.
