Former Capitals’ Young Gun Alex Semin is having another strong season in the KHL. As the 35-year-old captain of Vityaz Podolsk, Semin has 12 goals and 28 points in 37 games this season. His performance was enough to make him a KHL All-Star, which is being held this year in Moscow.
Saturday, Semin participated in the KHL All-Star Skills Competition and got some help from a special friend on a breakaway attempt.
Alex Semin, wearing a white number 28 jersey, was joined on the ice by his tiny son Alex Semin, wearing a red number 28 jersey. The two Semins passed it back in forth to each other on a 2-on-0 before dad did a fancy fake and curled at the crease, sending a beautiful leading, backhanded pass to his son for the goal. Goaltender Julius Hudacek stopped the puck in mid-air but according to the KHL, it crossed the goal line.

If you ask me, this is Alex Semin’s greatest assist of his career.
When dad saw his son scored, he flashed a huge smile. He grinned ear to ear as the pair skated back to center ice to join their fellow All-Stars.
Semin has two sons, Alex Jr. and Danil, with his wife.
