BC tipster Chris H sent word last night to the BC tip hotline that Carolina Hurricanes right winger Alexander Semin, who last played for the Capitals in 2012, was dumping his Arlington, VA mansion. Then I opened the listing and noticed the dude wants $2,795,000. I’ve been trying to tell you guys that these hockey players are real sneaky with their houses. They buy houses that rival NBA player pads. You’d think that these NHL guys would be ultra-conservative with their money. That they’d be grinders who lived in 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath houses with 3,000 sq. ft.
Just look at this massive 9,000 sq. ft. monster that Semin was shacked up in. We’re talking five giant bedrooms, 6.5 baths and a finished basement with a sweet theater room. Seriously, a hockey player was living here.

Other Highlights of Semin’s Former Pad:
• 1/2 acre to build an outdoor rink
• Two-car garage (you’ll need to find somewhere to house your imports)
• The basement is 2,626 sq. ft.; add on the 9k in listed living space and you have a giant house
Estimated mortgage: Around $11k a month before taxes, a housekeeper and landscaper
