Alexander Semin's season ends 2 games early after suffering a concussion

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes say Alexander Semin is out with a concussion.

Coach Kirk Muller said Thursday that Semin will miss their final two games of the season, including the home finale against the New York Rangers.

Semin ends his season with 13 goals and 31 assists while establishing himself as a valuable component of the Hurricanes' top line. He was Carolina's marquee free-agent acquisition this off-season after coming over from division rival Washington.

He had a goal in the Hurricanes' 4-3 shootout win over the New York Islanders on Tuesday night, but was held out of practice Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
