08/25/2005 Dmitri Semenov’s (Detroit Red Wings) latest Super League chance foiled
12/27/2003 Prediction/Where are they now: Dmitri Semenov (Detroit Red Wings) will debut with Sibir soon
Talent Analysis:
At 5’9 and 174 pounds, Dmitri Semenov is not an athletically gifted hockey player. Dmitri athletic ability is above average at best. He does make up for it somewhat with his skating. Dmtri is a very good skater, possessing great take off speed. He is also a great puck handler. This combination makes him a lethal puck carrying forward, but he does not possess the final needed component
Back In Russia:
Dmitri was born in Moscow and, like his father before him, joined the Dynamo Hockey School at a young age. 1996-97 season was Dmitri’s first on Dynamo’s junior farm team Dynamo 2. He continued playing for Dynamo 2 until the 99-00 season, when he was promoted to Dynamo’s Upper League affiliate, THK Tver. The season after, Dmitri continued his upward development and joined another affiliate of Dynamo Moscow, Dynamo Energya, which competed in the Super League. Dynamo Energya’s coach during Dmitri’s stay with the team was his father Vladimir Semenov. When Dynamo Moscow’s coach, Belyaletdinov, was fired midway through the 2000-01 season, Vladimir Semenov was promoted to the position. Vladimir Semenоv brought his son up with him when he joined Dynamo. Dmitri played only four games for Dynamo during the remainder of the regular season, but suited up for most of the postseason games when Dynamo was fighting for its survival in the Super League. Dmitri Semenov continued playing for Dynamo Moscow during the 2001-02 season, playing wing on the team’s fourth line with Alexander Stepanov and Yevgeniy Lapin.

Dmitri Semenov has been a member of the Russian National Team of the 1982 year of birth since 1999 season. Dmitri competed for Team Russia at the 1999 Four Nations Tournament in Bern, Switzerland. Dmitri also played for Team Russia at the 2001 Four Nations + Team St. Petersburg tournament in St. Petersburg where Russia placed first, losing only one game. Dmitri was surprisingly missing from the Russian National Team lineup at the 2001 U20 World Junior Championships.
NHL Outlook:
The Detroit Red Wings picked Dmitri Semenov in the fourth round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft with their fourth pick, 127th overall. Dmitri has the potential of developing into a mobile 3rd line winger. Thus far Dmitri’s development has been progressing at a respectable pace. He steadily rose through the Russian hockey leagues from Junior all the way down to the Super League. Since the age of just 18 he has been competing against professional hockey players and holding his own. During the 2001-02 season Dmitri has saw limited, but steady ice time with Dynamo Moscow. This has been quite a task for a 20 year old player, considering the fact that Dynamo Moscow retooled extensively in the off-season, acquiring many skilled veterans to fill the holes in it’s lineup. Dmitri can still learn a lot in the Super League, but, he will need to earn promotions to the team’s top lines in order to continue developing and not stagnating. A great example of a player working his way up in Dynamo Moscow is Dallas Stars prospect Alexei Tereschenko who started the season on Dynamo’s fourth line, with Dmitri. He, however, steadily rose through the ranks and is now logging minutes on Dynamo’s second line along with former NHLer Kudashov and Russian veteran Ravil Yakubov. If Dmitri succeeds in rising through the team’s ranks, he should stay in Russia at least until the 2003-04 season.
