26 Comments

Less than a week after being bought out by the Carolina Hurricanes, Alex Semin is looking to prove he still belongs in the NHL.

According to Igor Eronko of Sport-express.ru, Semin is looking for a one-year deal for next season. The 31-year-old isn’t considering a move to the KHL for the 2015-16 season.

Semin scored a career-low six goals and 19 points in 57 games with the Canes last season.

During the 2012-13 lockout Semin played 20 games with Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the KHL scoring seven goals and 10 assists.

Carolina placed Semin on unconditional waivers last Tuesday and bought him out. He will cost the Canes $2.3 million against the cap until 2020-21.
