Gregory Nemisz (born June 5, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre for the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League (AHL). He is a prospect of the Calgary Flames, selected in the first round, 25th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Nemisz made his NHL debut with the Flames in 2011.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Nemisz joined the OHL's Windsor Spitfires in 2006–07, recording 34 points in 62 games. He improved to 67 points in 68 games with the Spitfires the following year, earning the team award for dedication and determination. His season led the Calgary Flames to select him with their first round selection, 25th overall, at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, who project him to become a power forward. Nemisz set career highs with the Spitfires in 2008–09, scoring 36 goals and 77 points in 65 games, while adding an additional 20 points in 20 games as he helped his team capture the J. Ross Robertson Cup as OHL champions. He then went on to score a goal and six assists in the 2009 Memorial Cup as the Spitfires defeated the Western Hockey League's Kelowna Rockets to win the national junior championship.
He participated in training camp with the Flames, but was sent back to Windsor for the 2009–10 OHL season where he was expected to be a top player in the OHL. His play earned him a spot on the Canadian junior team for the 2010 World Junior Hockey Championships where he won a silver medal. He finished the season in Windsor with 70 points in 51 games, helping the Spitfires to win their second consecutive OHL championship while also capturing the 2010 Memorial Cup.
Nemisz turned professional in the 2010–11 season and was assigned to the Flames' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat. He had 14 goals and 32 points in Abbotsford when he was called up to the Flames in late March. He made his NHL debut on March 23, 2011, in a 6–3 loss to the San Jose Sharks.
