Canes' Semin Scratched For Third Straight

News: Alexander Semin will be scratched for a third straight game Tuesday against the Lightning, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Coach Bill Peters has grown tired of Alexander Semin's poor physical condition, which has resulted in horrendous numbers for the $7-million-a-year player. He's been scratched in nine of the past 13 contests and looks like he could be at risk of getting waived.

Canes' Semin: Two Games, Two Points

News: Alexander Semin picked up an assist Saturday and now has a helper in each of his last two games.
Analysis: Shhhhh ... don't say it out loud for fear you jinx him. He's getting ice time and he seems to like skating with Jeff Skinner. And both men have put up points in that situation. OK, superstitions aside -- fingers crossed this is the start of something, no ANYTHING, from this dud.

Hurricanes' Semin Will Play Thursday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) will play Thursday against the Sabres.
Analysis: Alexander Semin is set to resume playing for the first time since Dec. 21, after missing the last seven games with the injury. He will skate on the Hurricanes' third line opposite Jeff Skinner and next to Riley Nash.

Hurricanes' Semin On Track To Play Thursday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) is on track to return to action Thursday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin took part in Thursday's morning skate, which gives him a chance to play Thursday night for the first time since Dec. 21. Expect Carolina to make an announcement regarding his status prior to game time.

Canes' Semin (Upper Body) Won't Play Friday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) will not return to the lineup Friday versus the Flyers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Coach Bill Peters said that while Alexander Semin has been able to resume skating with the team over the last few days, he still needs to get back to full speed before becoming a lineup option. Expect the Hurricanes to revisit his condition at Saturday's practice before determining if he'll be good to for Sunday's tilt with the Bruins.

Canes' Semin Skating, But Out Wednesday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) will remain out of the lineup Wednesday versus the Penguins.
Analysis: Alexander Semin resumed practicing earlier this week, but since he was still skating as an extra at Wednesday's morning session, it doesn't appear that he's quite ready for a return. After Wednesday's contest, the Hurricanes will have a pair of games over the weekend, which could be a realistic target for Semin's addition to the lineup.

Hurricanes' Semin (Upper Body) Practicing Tuesday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) is practicing Tuesday, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin hasn't played since Dec. 21, but he may have a shot to return for Wednesday's contest in Pittsburgh. He has six points (one goal) in 22 appearances this season, and is averaging just 1.27 shots on goal per game.

Carolina's Semin Will Not Play Saturday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) will not play in Saturday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: Alexander Semin didn't even travel with the team to Tampa Bay, suggesting he might not be particularly close to a return. Despite the name recognition he carries, savvy fantasy owners probably shouldn't count on him at this point, as injuries and ineffectiveness have diminished most of his value. He's been limited to just 22 games this season and has provided one goal, six points and a minus-9 rating during that time.

Canes' Semin (Upper Body) Out Tuesday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) will miss Tuesday's game against the Jets, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin's absence from practice Monday foreshadowed his unavailability for Tuesday's contest against the Devils. The Hurricanes recalled Brendan Woods on Monday, who will likely draw into the lineup Tuesday in Semin's place. The team has a three-day Christmas break following Tuesday's contest, which could allow him to return for the team's next game Saturday against the Lightning.

Hurricanes' Semin Does Not Practice Monday

News: Alexander Semin (undisclosed) didn't take part in Carolina's practice Monday, Michael Smith of Hurricanes.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin was likely held out of practice for maintenance reasons, although it might be worth keeping an eye on with Monday's recall of Brendan Woods. The 30-year-old should be considered day-to-day heading into Tuesday's game against the Devils as a result of his absence from Monday's practice.

Canes' Semin Will Play Sunday

News: Alexander Semin was activated from injured reserve Saturday and will return to the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin's injury has cost a couple of weeks, but he will finally return to the lineup. He has just one goal in 21 games this season, a ratio the Sabres would like to improve drastically moving forward.

Hurricanes Activate Semin

News: The Hurricanes activated Alexander Semin (lower body) from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: Alexander Semin has missed Carolina's last five games, but this activation paves the way for him to return Sunday against the Rangers. However, he had just one goal and six points in 21 games before the injury.

'Canes Rule Out Semin For Saturday

News: Alexander Semin (lower body) has been ruled out for a return to action Saturday against the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin participated in Saturday's morning session and looks to be close to playing, but coach Bill Peters opted to hold him out for an additional day. It's possible the Hurricanes wanted to avoid returning him to action amid a back-to-back scenario, so it wouldn't be especially surprising if he was activated in time for Sunday's rematch with the Rangers in New York. Though Semin's return is near, he's not worthy of a speculative add, as he amassed just one goal and six points in 21 games before landing on IR.

Hurricanes' Semin Could Be Back Saturday

News: Alexander Semin (lower body) was on the ice for Saturday's morning skate, but it's unclear if he'll play later in the evening against the Rangers.
Analysis: Coach Bill Peters acknowledged earlier in the week that it was possible Alexander Semin might return over the weekend, and he made a strong case early Saturday by taking part in rushes with the fourth line. However, he remained on the ice for extra work when most of the regulars departed, suggesting that he might not be quite ready to go. Expect Peters to provide official word on his status in the coming hours.

Hurricanes' Semin Could Return This Weekend

News: Head coach Bill Peters hopes Alexander Semin (lower body) will be able to return to action this weekend, Michael Smith of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin will miss at least one more game Thursday night, but he has nearly recovered from his lower-body injury, so it's possible he could be in the lineup for one or both of the two games the Hurricanes will play against the Rangers this weekend.

Hurricanes Shuttle Semin Over To IR

News: Alexander Semin (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: The announcement shouldn't catch anyone off guard after coach Bill Peters noted after Wednesday's practice that Alexander Semin wasn't close to suiting up for games. With his return timetable indefinite, Semin's placement on IR will free up a roster spot for Brett Bellemore (lower body), who is now healthy after missing the previous seven games.

Hurricanes' Semin Not Close To Return

News: Coach Bill Peters said Wednesday that Alexander Semin (lower body) isn't nearing a return to action, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: As a result, expect Alexander Semin to sit out his second straight game Thursday versus the Lightning, with Saturday's tilt in Philadelphia seemingly a long shot as well. The winger's third season in Carolina has been an absolute disaster, as he's notched just one goal and six points in 21 games.

Hurricanes' Semin Out Monday

News: Alexander Semin will not play Monday due to an undisclosed injury, Mike Maniscalco of WRAL Sports reports.
Analysis: It's not clear what type of setback Alexander Semin is dealing with, but he will be unavailable Monday. Expect an update on his status as more details become available.

Canes' Semin Finally Scores

News: In his 20th game of the season, Alexander Semin finally broke through with his first goal of the year -- and his 500th NHL point -- in a 2-1 loss to the Capitals on Thursday
Analysis: In a piece of mild irony, the previously scoreless Alexander Semin was the only one who could score on Braden Holtby in this one. A three-time 30-goal man who put 22 in the net last year, Semin has been off to a truly miserable start this year. His lack of goals hasn't really been bad luck -- he's gone without a single shot on goal a whopping seven times in 20 games, and Thursday's five shots represent a season high. Maybe he's turning a corner, or maybe he just got up for this game against his old Washington mates.

Canes' Semin Healthy Scratch Again Thursday

News: Alexander Semin will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Kings.
Analysis: It's the second time this month that Alexander Semin has been a healthy scratch, as coach Bill Peters appears to be growing frustrated with his lack of production. Semin has no goals and five points over 14 games and has seen his average ice time drop over three minutes from a season earlier.

Hurricanes' Semin To Play Tuesday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game against the Stars, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Alexander Semin will return to action after sitting out the last two games. He will skate on the Hurricanes' second line next to Riley Nash and opposite Nathan Gerbe.

Canes' Semin Will Not Play On Sunday

News: Alexander Semin (upper body) will not play in Sunday's game against the Sharks, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: This will be the second game that Alexander Semin will miss due to the injury, after missing Saturday's game against the Bruins. This injury came at a bad time for Semin as he was just starting to pick up some offensive momentum. The 30-year-old winger has not scored a goal this season but has added five assists in 13 games played.

Canes' Semin (Upper Body) Out Saturday

News: Alexander Semin will miss Saturday's game against the Bruins with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: It's unclear at what point Alexander Semin sustained the injury, but it will sideline the winger just as he was starting to establish some semblance of offensive momentum. Semin saw his three-game point streak come to an end in Thursday's loss to the Jets, but he has still been a huge disappointment on the season. The 30-year-old has attempted just 16 shots in 13 games and has yet to find the back of the net. His status for Sunday's game against the Sharks is uncertain at this time.

Canes' Semin Back In Lineup Tuesday

News: After sitting out as a healthy scratch for the previous two games, Alexander Semin is back in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: "I'd like to see [Alexander Semin] work, work real hard, work similar to what our twelve forwards who have been in the lineup the last two games have worked," coach Bill Peters said. "I thought our work ethic has been very good and I think it's contagious, so I'd like to see him compete at the level we're at and play at the pace the league is at." Hopefully the benching is enough to light a fire under Semin and restore some of his fantasy value that has deteriorated so far this season. Semin is once again expected to skate on the Canes' top line alongside Eric Staal and Jiri Tlusty.

Canes' Semin Remains On Track To Be Scratched

News: Alexander Semin remains on track to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Coyotes.
Analysis: After the players expected to play Saturday left the ice during morning skate, Alexander Semin remained to take part in extra work, seemingly confirming that he'll spend Saturday's game in the press box. Semin probably won't become a routine healthy scratch for the Hurricanes, but it's evident that the team is disappointed in his lack of offensive production. He's contributed only two points (no goals) and 12 shots on goal over eight games.
