The Washington Capitals filed a complaint in U.S. District Court Wednesday against Alexander Semin’s agent, Mark Gandler, Gandler’s firm, International Sports Advisors Company, Inc. and Semin as part of the team’s efforts to compel all parties to allow the forward to return to Washington and honor his contract with the Capitals. Washington Capitals vice president and general manager George McPhee made the following statement: “We have done everything we could to avoid this step, but we felt we had no choice but to now seek a legal remedy. This filing seeks to compel Alexander Semin’s agent and the Russian hockey team Lada Togliatti to return Alex to the Washington Capitals. We made a commitment to Alex when we signed him to a valid three-year contract in 2003, and he should not be playing hockey for another team. His new agent has told us that Alex is under a military obligation in Russia; however Alex is playing professional hockey. “We look forward to the resolution of this process so that we can welcome Alex back to the Capitals this season.”
