Semin moves to KHL, joins Volchenkov

After playing for free for his hometown team of Krasnoyarsk Sokol, Carolina Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin is moving to the KHL and joining the roster of Torpedo.

Semin, 28, who agreed to a one-year contract with the Canes this summer, will reportedly be joining New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov for Torpedo.

While many Russian NHL stars had signed rather lucrative contracts with KHL, the veteran winger had begun the lockout wanting to play in front of his hometown crowd and aging grandmother.

However, as the lockout drags on, Semin held talks with Torpedo, and he and Volchenkov are expected to join the roster in the coming week.

In 77 games with the Washington Capitals last season, Semin collected 21 goals and 33 assists for 54 points.
