Alexander Semin Partakes In His First NHL Fight, Fails Miserably

Alexander Semin, who may have the most unintentionally hilarious name in the NHL, got into a bit of a scrape last night against the Rangers' Nick Staal. Now, normally there'd be nothing noteworthy about this. However, since this was Semin's first ever NHL fight, and he dropped his purse sometime during it, I think that's worthy of our attention. Let's go to the video.

If you think I'm being harsh, check out some of the YouTube comments on this fight:

"Semin looked like a transvestite beating up it's cheating boyfriend on jerry springer."

"He fights like my little neice!"

As Puck Daddy points out, the last time Semin fought anyone was in the AHL back in 2004, so he hasn't exactly been well trained in the art of pugilism. Semin's obviously been trained on how to do a drum solo though. Or play bongos, whatever works best.

I think what started it was when Staal told him he had Semin on his back.

I am shocked by his performance.  You'd think with a name like that he'd be able to throw down since he had to have been harrassed to no end
