Report: Hurricanes' Semin still recovering from early offseason wrist surgery

by Aug 9, 10:01 AM

Carolina Hurricanes forward Alex Semin appears to be stuck in recovery mode more than two months after undergoing wrist surgery to correct an issue that plagued him for all of 2013-14.

The 30-year-old forward was limited to 65 games this past season, but managed to register 22 goals, 20 assists, a 55.2 Corsi For rating and 906 total shot attempts while playing with an injury suffered early in the season.

All indications are that he remains on track to be ready for training camp, and new head coach Bill Peters will certainly be looking to the offensively gifted Semin (who has four years and $28 million remaining on his contract) to help spark the turnaround in Carolina.
