Capitals Free Agency 2012: Alexander Semin To Sign With Penguins, According To Report (UPDATED)

Editor's note: It appears this report is premature. We apologize for the confusion.

Less than 24 hours after Ted Starkey analyzed the curious case of Alexander Semin's unsuccessful free agency thus far, the winger has apparently found his team. Sportsnet reported on Tuesday morning that the former-Capitals player will sign with the Pittsburgh Penguins on a one-year deal.

Josh Yohe of the Tribune-Review in Pittsburgh reported on Thursday that Semin had interest in playing for the Penguins, but was looking for a long-term deal with the team. That didn't come to fruition for the 28-year old, though, as he has reportedly received only a one-year deal with the Penguins.

Semin scored 197 goals in 469 games played during his seven years with the Capitals, the only team he's played with during his career in the NHL.
