Alexander Semin has agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Carolina Hurricanes.
The team announced Monday that Semin will make $7 million per year through the 2017-18 season.
Semin left Washington last summer and signed a one-year deal worth $7 million with the Hurricanes with the hope that a fresh start in Carolina would rejuvenate his career.
He has a team-best 22 assists and is second with 30 points while skating on the left wing on the Eric Staal-led top line for Carolina.
General manager Jim Rutherford calls Semin a ''major contributor'' to that No. 1 line.

What in the world are the Carolina Hurricanes doing? People who bash Oilers management should pay attention to this.
