News: Alexander Semin is slated to undergo offseason surgery on his wrist, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin, who had 22 goals and 42 points in 65 games this past season, will undergo the procedure to deal with a wrist issue that he dealt with much of the season, according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.

Analysis: The report speculates that Alexander Semin will also miss the season finale in Philadelphia on Sunday, and with the Hurricanes out of the playoffs that would end Semin's season. If that's the case, he'll finish with 22 goals and 42 points in 65 games.

Hurricanes Scratch Semin On Friday

News: Alexander Semin was a late scratch by the Hurricanes on Friday, NHL.com's Brian Hedger reports.
Analysis: It doesn't sound like the decision to scratch Alexander Semin was injury-related, as he saw 18:58 of ice time a night earlier against the Capitals with no apparent issues. Coach Kirk Muller likely just wanted to give him a breather for the second game of a back-to-back after he just got over an illness last week.

News: Alexander Semin (illness) returned to action Saturday, logging 24:33 TOI in a loss to the Devils.

Canes' Semin Questionable For Thursday

News: Alexander Semin (illness) is questionable to play Thursday against the Stars.
Analysis: Alexander Semin was a last-minute scratch with the flu Tuesday against the Penguins, and is apparently not yet all the way recovered from the illness. He was absent from the Hurricanes' morning skate Thursday.

Semin Supplies Carolina Offense In Loss

News: Alexander Semin scored both of Carolina's goals in Friday's 3-2 loss to Chicago, giving him four goals in the last five games.
Analysis: Alexander Semin had not notched a point in the two games before Friday, but with Friday's effort he has five points in the last five games. He's an utterly skilled player, just frustrating to own due to inconsistency.

Canes' Semin Expected To Play Tuesday

News: Alexander Semin didn't practice with the team on Monday, but is still expected to play against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin has been on fire of late, scoring 18 goals since Jan. 18, good for the most in the NHL over that span. The nature of his absence hasn't yet been disclosed, but the hope is that he'll return to the ice on Tuesday as planned to continue his hot streak.

Alexander Semin

Semin Scores Lone Goal For Canes Saturday

News: Alexander Semin bagged his 19th goal of the season as part of a team-high seven shots Saturday. It was the lone Hurricanes marker in a 5-1 afternoon loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: The Russian sniper's third-period tally cut the Bruins' lead in half before they erased any chance of a Carolina comeback with three unanswered goals. After an underwhelming start to the season in which he recorded a mediocre three goals and ten points in his first 24 games, Alexander Semin has brought his point total to 39 and turned things around. He played his way on to Russia's Olympic team after being snubbed for his poor play, and finally looks Semin-like with 21 points in his last 20 games. The man they call "Sasha" also extended his point streak to seven games in this one, which became both the longest current streak in the NHL and his longest of the season. He is showing great chemistry with Jordan Staal - who is enjoying a five-game point streak of his own - and we're optimistic that the remaining 15 games will be enough for him to reach 50 points for the sixth time in his nine-year career.

Semin Sparks Carolina

News: Alexander Semin notched a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over Buffalo, extending his point streak to six games.
Analysis: Alexander Semin has three goals and five assists over that span and is on one of those streaks in which he's seemingly unstoppable. He notched six shots on goal in the win and has been the Canes' top offensive weapon in the weeks since the NHL resumed play.

Canes' Semin: 17 Points In Last 17 Games

News: Alexander Semin's point streak now stands at four games after he potted a goal and an assist in Saturday's loss to the Devils. He has two goals and three assists on the streak.
Analysis: He has 17 points, including 11 goals, in his last 17 games -- that's a nice change from 18 in his previous 34 games. He looks like he'll be a solid contributor to season's end.

News: Alexander Semin (lower body) scored his 16th goal of the season in his return to action Sunday against Anaheim.
Analysis: Alexander Semin was only forced to sit out Saturday's game against the Kings on account of the lower-body injury. He was on the ice for 17:22 in the loss to the Ducks and it looks as though fantasy owners can count on his health heading into the week.

News: Alexander Semin (lower body) was on the ice for warmups prior to Sunday's game against the Ducks, NHL.com's Curtis Zupke reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin missed Saturday's game against the Kings, but his presence in warmups would appear to bode well for his chances of suiting up Sunday, barring any setbacks.

News: Alexander Semin (lower body) is not expected to be available Saturday against the Kings, Jamie Kellner of CanesCountry.com reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin left Thursday's game with the lower-body injury following a hard hit into the boards and was not present for Friday's practice. With the winger expected to be evaluated over the next few days, the Hurricanes will try to get by with rookie Elias Lindholm as the first-line right winger.

Canes' Semin (Lower Body) May Return Sunday

News: Alexander Semin (lower body) may return Sunday against Anaheim, reports the Associated Press. "He's one of our best players, so it hurts having him out," said teammate Riley Nash.
Analysis: The enigmatic Alexander Semin was hurt Thursday against Dallas and missed Saturday's game against the Canes. Keep him benched until you know he's a lock to return.

Canes' Semin Out For Game

News: Alexander Semin left Thursday's game against the Stars with a lower-body injury and will not return, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin totaled 4:21 of ice time in the game before leaving with an injury. He scored his 15th goal of the season in Tuesday's game against the Sabres and is respectable fantasy player. Consider him day-to-day until his status is clarified.

Canes' Semin Notches Goal No. 15

News: Alexander Semin scored his 15th goal of the season in Carolina's 3-2 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday.
Analysis: Alexander Semin tied the game up a two apiece with just four minutes remaining in contest, but the Hurricanes surrendered a goal with less than a minute remaining to lose the game in regulation. While Semin hasn't quite met expectations for the Hurricanes in the first year of his five-year, $35 million extension, he still remains solidly on the fantasy radar with 30 points and a plus-9 rating over 46 games.

Semin Scores In Canes' Win

News: Alexander Semin scored the game-winning goal in Carolina's 5-1 rout over Florida on Friday, giving him two goals in the last three games.
Analysis: The dynamic winger has been delivering points in the last three weeks with eight goals and three helpers since mid-January, a span of 10 games. When he is producing, Alexander Semin can look like one of the league's best players, because he can be. He figures to see plenty of scoring chances for Russia during the Olympics and could be a sneaky pick in Olympic pools.

Canes' Semin Continuing To Produce

News: Alexander Semin iced Friday's 3-1 victory over St. Louis with an empty-netter, giving him four goals in the last six games and seven points during that span.
Analysis: Alexander Semin has been finding his stride of late and his play has earned him a call-up to the Russian Olympic squad after not being selected on the initial roster. Semin's skill has never been questioned and few can be as productive as him when he decides to play.

Hurricanes' Semin Stays Hot

News: Alexander Semin contributed two assists in Saturday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: Alexander Semin is enjoying his most productive stretch of the season, as he's delivered eight points (six goals, two assists) over his last five games. Fantasy owners likely don't need to be told to keep rolling him out in their lineups while he continues to sizzle.

Canes' Semin Nets Two More

News: Alexander Semin scored two goals in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Sabres, extending his goal streak to four games.
Analysis: A once disappointing season is quickly turning around, as Alexander Semin has six goals during the four-game streak. His 12 assists in 38 games fall far short of expectations, but the 12 goals are more or less in line with expectations, even if the path to get there has been odd.

Canes' Semin Scores Twice After Being Criticized

News: Alexander Semin scored twice Saturday in a win over the Panthers. The goals come a day after Hurricanes' general manager Jim Rutherford called him out on a local TV station. He has just eight goals on the season.
Analysis: Rutherford has every right to be disappointed with Alexander Semin's production -- this is his first two-goal game in Carolina after signing in July 2012. His talent level is among the league's best, but his effort level is often among the worst. And his eight goals and 12 assists in 35 games isn't anywhere close to expectation. He might be a decent play right now, though -- he's fired up by the criticism.

Semin Active In Canes' Shutout Loss

News: Alexander Semin put five shots on goal in Friday's loss to Columbus (no points) and has three points in the last five games.
Analysis: Alexander Semin has just one goal over the last five tilts, but he was active Friday in getting pucks on goal. His played has improved of late, but owners would like to to see it show up on more in the box score.
