Hurricanes actively shopping Semin

The Carolina Hurricanes are looking to move veteran winger Alexander Semin before the March 2 trade deadline, two separate sources have told TFP.

Semin, who turns 31 on March 3, has three-years left on his contract that comes with a salary cap hit of $7 million.

In 35 games with the Hurricanes this season, Semin has registered two goals and 12 assists for 14 points, along with 20 penalty minutes.

Hurricanes GM Ron Francis has been active of late, trading defenseman Andrej Sekera to the Los Angeles Kings and winger Jiri Tlusty to the Winnipeg Jets earlier this week.

Francis is also entertaining calls for pending unrestricted free agent forwards Jay McClement and Patrick Dwyer, and defenseman Tim Gleason. Teams have also inquired about Jeff Skinner's availability, and Francis has not indicated that he will not trade him.

As the Hurricanes work on deals involving some of their players, Semin is a focal point for the team. He has been dangled across the League for "some time," TFP has been told.

The Hurricanes, according to the two league sources, are willing to retain a "significant portion" of Semin's contract if a team is interested in acquiring him.

It's unclear how much of Semin's salary the Hurricanes are exactly willing to eat up. Teams are allowed to retain as much as 50 per cent of a player's salary in a trade.

Semin's agents declined to comment on the subject when contacted by TFP.
