    Alexander Semin: Has deal in place with KHL club

    Semin has a deal in place to play the remainder of the season with Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL, TSN's Frank Seravalli reports. It was widely believed that Semin would sign with a KHL club after Montreal placed him on unconditional waivers Wednesday, so this latest development doesn't come as much of a surprise. The former 40-goal scorer was a huge disappointment for the Canadiens after signing a one-year contract with the team this offseason, tallying four points (one goal, three assists) in 15 games, while averaging just over 12 minutes of ice time per game. Semin has almost certainly played his last game in the NHL.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Placed on unconditional waivers

    Semin was placed on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. After he didn't report to AHL St. John's, Semin is likely eyeing a move to the KHL in his native Russia. Semin looked like one of the most talented players in the world when he scored 40 goals in the 2009-10 season, but his career has come off the rails, scoring just seven goals in his last 72 games. This go-around with the Habs is likely to be the last time Semin is seen wearing an NHL sweater.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Heading to Russia?

    There's speculation that Semin (lower body) is heading to the KHL of Russia, the Montreal Gazette reports. Semin cleared waivers Tuesday and was sent down to St. John's of the American Hockey Leauge, but the wait is on to see if he actually reports.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Clears waivers, heads to AHL

    Semin (lower body) has cleared waivers, per Renaud Lavoie of TVA sports. Sportsnet's Eric Engels reports that Semin has been assigned to AHL St. John's, which might have been the Habs' intent of waiving him in the first place because the parent club now has the Russian on the books at a cap hit of only $150,000. Semin is still dealing with a lower-body injury, however, and his next chance to appear in a game at the minor-league level will be this Friday.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Placed on waivers

    Semin was placed on waivers Monday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. Semin, who is currently on injured reserve with a lower-body injury, hasn't panned out for the Habs this season (one goal, four points in 15 games). Montreal took a minimal risk in signing Semin to a one-year deal worth $1.1 million, as even if he clears waivers and is assigned to the AHL, only a $150,000 cap hit will be charged to Montreal. The mercurial Russian has a good chance of being claimed though, as 40-goal scorers who are only 31 years of age do not become available very often.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Placed on IR, out a minimum of one week

    Semin (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve and will miss at least one week, NHL.com reports. As noted in the report, Christian Thomas has been recalled from AHL St. John's as a move that directly corresponds to Semin's placement on injured reserve. Semin is a talented player with 517 career points (239 goals, 278 assists) but his point totals have been doing a tailspin since tallying 54 points in 2011-12, his last season with the Capitals. He has just four points in 15 games with Montreal this campaign and his low 12:20 TOI/G is a key limiting factor for the Russian.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Exits Wednesday's game with injury

    Semin has been ruled out of the remainder of Wednesday's tilt against the Rangers with an undisclosed injury, Sportsnet's Eric Engels reports. It isn't clear when or how Semin suffered the ding, but the Canadiens should provide an update on his status following Wednesday's game. The 31-year-old winger logged just 5:22 of ice time before exiting the contest.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Scores assist in Friday's win

    Semin notched an assist Friday against the Islanders in a 5-3 win. Semin played on the fourth line and logged just 9:01, but managed to score the second assist on Montreal's first goal. He fired another four shots on net in a surprisingly productive game. Semin returned to the lineup after Torrey Mitchell (lower body) left Thursday's game, and even after notching a point, his status for Sunday's game against the Islanders is uncertain. He's too unreliable to be a valuable fantasy asset.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Expected to be active Friday

    Semin is expected to return to the active lineup Friday night against the Islanders after Torrey Mitchell left Thursday night's loss to the Coyotes with a lower body injury. The reconfigured second line with Mitchell played well Thursday, but it's back to the disappointing Semin, who's been a healthy scratch in nine of the last 11 games.

    Canadiens' Alexander Semin: Healthy scratch Thursday

    Semin will not be in the active lineup for Thursday night's game against the Coyotes, the Montreal Gazette reports. Semin had sat out seven games before getting back into a couple of games over the weekend. We saw this coming in Monday's comeback win over Vancouver, after Semin played a team-low 6:48 and was benched after taking a holding penalty in the third period with Montreal trailing 3-1. Torrey Mitchell will be promoted from the fourth line to skate in Semin's spot at right wing on the second line.
