New, comments

Following his assignment to the AHL, Semin will attempt to find a job in Europe.

According to Renaud Lavoie, Alex Semin will be pursuing overseas options, in the goal of finding a contract with a KHL team.

It's not a shock that a 31-year-old would prefer to avoid playing in the AHL, considering his tenure with the Canadiens was tumultuous to say the least. There's no word on whether or not any KHL teams have shown interest in signing the oft-maligned forward, who played with Nizhny Novgorod Torpedo during the lockout.

For Semin to sign in the KHL, there needs to be a mutual agreement for a contract termination between himself and the Habs. If that that happens, his contract will come off the books.
