Alexander Semin Rumors: Capitals Forward Has Offer From KHL, According To Reports

Alexander Semin's free agency saga has received an interesting twist, as the forward has apparently received a substantial offer from CSKA Moscow of Russia's KHL.

The story, first reported by Slava Malamud of Sport-Express, contains an unconfirmed report that CSKA has offered a four-year contract worth $9.2 million per year.

Semin made $6.7 million last season with the Washington Capitals, and if the offer by CSKA is in fact true, that is much more than anything he has been offered to stay in the NHL. It will be interesting to monitor this story going forward, as it seems that Semin will have to make a decision between staying in the NHL or heading back home to Russia to play in the KHL.
