2006-07: Semin enjoyed his best season to date in the Super League. The 23-year-old had 13 goals and 26 points in total in playing 41 games with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. This matches his point output from last season, but was accomplished in 10 fewer games. He was on fire to begin the season, but his quick start was interrupted in December when he broke his hand, causing him to miss about three weeks. This was quite unfortunate, as his production dwindled upon his return.
Semin is a fast skater with good offensive instincts. He doesn’t panic when carrying the puck, and can either set up teammates or score goals himself.
Semin will try to build on his strong 2006-07 season as he returns to Lokomotiv for 2007-08.
