Alexander Semin signs with the Hurricanes

  • Jim Rutherford via twitter: “Alex’s elite skill level & ability to score fill important needs, & we hope a fresh start will serve both him & our team well. “
  • Mike Sundheim via twitter: Semin is 1 of 16 NHL players to average 30 or more goals over the past 6 seasons, 31.2 goals per year.
  • EJ Hradek via twitter: This signing makes sense. The Hurricanes are very familiar with him, high skill guy, and 1 year deal is very low risk.

    Good for the Canes. I honestly hope this works out for them. They have some good young players and now it appears two very solid top lines. Semin – E. Staal – Skinner on the same line could be potent!
