|Assets:||Went to the net with authority. Had a goal-scorer's touch and sound defensive instincts, as well. Possessed excellent size. Produced good numbers at lower levels. Could play both wing and center.|
|Flaws:||Never really stepped up his grit and physical game in order to become a great pro. Also never added enough strength or bulked up enough for the NHL level. Lacked a little consistency from game to game.|
|Career Potential:||Big depth forward.|

Hurricanes resign Greg Nemisz for one year | 07/02/2014 7:33 PM
NewsGreg Nemisz signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Hurricanes on Wednesday evening that could pay him $600,000 if he hangs around in the NHL next season.
ImpactThe 24 year old forward scored eight goals and 12 assists for 20 points in 46 AHL games last season. The 25th overall pick from the 2008 NHL Entry Draft has played 15 NHL games in his career, won two Memorial Cups with the Windsor Spitfires and played for Team Canada in the World Juniors. He will earn $100,000 if he remains in the AHL.
Rutherford: We need to stop our slide now | 12/31/2013 9:11 AM
NewsHurricanes GM Jim Rutherford is hoping that trading Kevin Westgarth to Calgary for Greg Nemisz helps shake his team out of its slide.
Raleigh News & Observer
ImpactCarolina has lost five straight games to drop its record to 14-16-9 this season. "We need to change some things and we need to change them quickly," Rutherford said. "We need to stop the slide and stop it now." The trade is likely more about sending a message to the team than anything, as Nemisz isn't someone who can turn a struggling team around. The 23-year-old forward has five goals and nine points in 32 AHL contests this season.

NewsThe Carolina Hurricanes have dealt forward Kevin Westgarth to the Flames in exchange for winger Greg Nemisz.
ImpactNemisz was a first round selection of the Flames in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, but has yet to emerge as a reliable NHLer, skating in just 15 career games. This trade has no impact on fantasy leagues.
