Carolina Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin on Tuesday signed with Sokol Krasnoyarsk, a Russian minor-league team that is located near where he grew up.

Semin, who signed with the Hurricanes in July, had 21 goals and 54 points in 77 regular-season games last season with the Washington Capitals. He added three goals and an assist in 14 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
