Alex Semin applies to graduate program at Russian university signaling potential end of hockey career
Has the first player from the Caps’ Young Guns retired from hockey? No, but it appears likely soon.
Former Capitals forward Alex Semin has applied to be in a full-time master’s degree program in Metallurgy of Non-Ferrous Metals at Siberian Federal University. The Russian website Newslab.ru was the first to report the news.
Semin’s main focus will be on the Theory and Technology of Non-Ferrous Metallurgy. The university says that students in this program work with both resources at the school and with employees currently working in the metallurgy industry. Metallurgy, just like any specialty field in Materials Sciences, is a very challenging and difficult area of science and technology.
