A Look At Alexander Semin

from Katie Carrera of The Washington Post,

On the evening he scored his third hat trick of the season, Alexander Semin stood in the Washington Capitals’ dressing room enveloped by a horde of reporters. Amid the sound of whirring fans drying sweaty equipment, Semin was asked if he can ever predict such a successful performance.

Given an opportunity to offer insight or make a joke, the 26-year-old Russian sharpshooter chose one of his typically guarded answers.

“I’m not going to say anything,” he said through an interpreter. “That’s inside me. I’m not going to share that with you guys. Why should I reveal anything?”

A third of the way through his sixth season with the Capitals, Semin is on pace for a career-best campaign statistically, and although teammates say he’s gradually revealing more of his reserved personality in the locker room, he is still a mystery to the outside world.

In other Semin News, apparently Colby Armstrong got into a tussle with Semin and after a few stick whacks to each other, Semin launched a verbal tirade nobody could understand…. so Armstrong just made the bongos motion to him.

You can’t make this stuff up.  That’s funny stuff right there…
