Hurricanes, Alexander Semin agree on 5-year, $35M contract extension through 2017-18

RALEIGH, N.C. - Alexander Semin has agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The team announced Monday that Semin will make $7 million per year through the 2017-18 season.

Semin left Washington last summer and signed a one-year deal worth $7 million with the Hurricanes with the hope that a fresh start in Carolina would rejuvenate his career.

He has a team-best 22 assists and is second with 30 points while skating on the left wing on the Eric Staal-led top line for Carolina.

General manager Jim Rutherford calls Semin a "major contributor" to that No. 1 line.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
