January 2013 – Nemisz started the season behind everyone else after a lower body injury kept him on the shelf until the finale of November. He is yet to shake the rust as he has not recorded a point in 13 games. It is also concerning that he only has 13 shots at this point from what should be an above average weapon at the AHL level.

March 2012 – Nemisz has the lanky size, pro speed, and great offensive instincts to play in the NHL as a power forward. He will need to develop the physical aspect and strength to his game in order to stick in Calgary. He produced four solid years in the junior ranks in Windsor as three 30-goal campaigns with the Spitfires. Nemisz has already seen some action in his first two pro seasons in Calgary, although in order to stick will need more consistency.
Fantasy Outlook: B-
Nemisz has the speed, size, and talent to play in the NHL although needs to form confidence before succeeding.

Fantasy Prospects Report Notes (Any FPR's released in the last 18 months will not be listed here):
2009 Fantasy Prospects Report:
This potential power forward improved his numbers this past season and it looks like he may have 30-goal NHL ability in a few years. The good news is that the Flames do not have a lot of options in terms of offense in the system. The bad news is that his numbers may have improved because of his linemate Taylor Hall, projected to go first in 2010. He also needs to play a tougher, more physical game. Nemisz will need a couple of years to fill out and then a couple more to get used to bringing his game to the NHL level, but expect him in the league in 2011-12. He’ll be fantasy worthy two years after that.
Upside: Complimentary power winger on the first or second line, (35-40-75, 65 PIM)
Certainty (NHLer; Upside): 80%; 40%
