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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
