  • Patrik Nemeth: Signs in Switzerland

    Nemeth (illness) signed a two-year contract with SC Bern of the Swiss National League on Friday.

    Nemeth spent the last 10 seasons in the NHL, playing for Dallas, Colorado, Detroit, the Rangers and Arizona. He had five assists in 75 regular-season games with the Coyotes in 2022-23. Nemeth inked a three-year contract with Arizona two seasons ago -- the last season of his deal was bought out by the Coyotes in June.

  • Patrik Nemeth: Goes on unconditional waivers

    Arizona placed Nemeth (illness) on unconditional waivers Tuesday for the purpose of a buyout, Chris Johnston of TSN reports.

Nemeth had more season left on his three-year, $7.5 million contract. He will be looking for a new team July 1 as an unrestricted free agent.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Missing finale

    Nemeth (illness) won't play Thursday versus the Canucks.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Expected to play against Vancouver

    Nemeth (lower body) is expected to return Thursday versus Vancouver, according to Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Won't suit up Tuesday

    Nemeth (lower body) won't play Tuesday versus the Flames, per the NHL media site.

    Nemeth was injured at the morning skate Tuesday, and it will cost him at least one game. Michael Kesselring was called up from AHL Tucson and will replace Nemeth in the lineup.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Exits morning skate

    Nemeth had to be helped off the ice with an apparent lower-body injury at Tuesday's morning skate, NHL.com reports.

    Despite his exit from morning skate, Nemeth is considered a game-time decision for Tuesday night's matchup with Calgary. If Nemeth is unable to go, look for Michael Kesselring to jump into the lineup.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Gets on scoresheet with assist

    Nemeth produced an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Predators.

    Nemeth snapped a 13-game point drought with the helper, which was his second assist since the All-Star break. The 31-year-old defenseman continues to be a void on offense -- he's at five helpers with a minus-2 rating, 92 hits, 90 blocked shots, 48 shots on net and 26 PIM through 60 contests. He's a veteran presence on a young blue line in Arizona, but he shouldn't be on the fantasy radar.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Snaps slump with helper

    Nemeth produced an assist, three hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Wild.

    Nemeth had gone 23 games without a point entering Monday's contest. The drought ended when he was credited with the secondary helper on Jack McBain's third-period tally. With just four assists through 46 contests, Nemeth's production is far too low to be of use to most fantasy managers. He's added 72 hits, 60 blocked shots, 29 shots on net, 20 PIM and a minus-1 rating while logging primarily bottom-four minutes this season.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Stuck in slump

    Nemeth has gone 17 games without a point.

    Nemeth has a minus-4 rating with 28 hits, 18 blocked shots and just eight shots on goal in that span. The 30-year-old was separated from Troy Stecher -- they'd been serving as a defense-first pairing for much of the season. Through 39 contests overall, Nemeth has only three assists with 62 hits, 50 blocked shots, 24 shots on net and a minus-1 rating. The lack of offense means he's a non-factor in most fantasy formats.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Snaps long point drought

    Nemeth produced an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Nemeth entered Tuesday with a 17-game point drought, which he snapped by setting up a Nick Bjugstad goal in the third period. While Nemeth's playing time remains steady on the Coyotes' third pairing, he's earned just three assists in 22 contests this season. He's added 34 hits, 32 blocked shots, 16 shots on net and a plus-3 rating, but without more offense, he won't be an option in most fantasy formats.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Delivers assist Tuesday

    Nemeth recorded an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Panthers.

    Nemeth has picked up two assists in four games since he made his season debut Oct. 25. The 30-year-old has added four blocked shots, three hits, a minus-1 rating and three shots on net. He's unlikely to see much more than third-pairing minutes, as the Coyotes are likely to go with more talented and younger options in the top four.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Gathers helper in overtime loss

    Nemeth logged an assist in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets.

    Nemeth picked up his first helper with the Coyotes on a Christian Fischer tally midway through the first period. This was just Nemeth's second game with the team -- he's played in favor of the struggling Dysin Mayo, who was a healthy scratch in those contests. Nemeth had seven points, a minus-9 rating, 115 hits and 102 blocked shots in 63 outings with the Rangers last year, but his inability to lock down a role with a rebuilding Coyotes team makes him a non-factor in fantasy.

  • Coyotes' Patrik Nemeth: Traded to Arizona

    The Rangers traded Nemeth, a 2025 second-round pick and a future conditional pick to Arizona in exchange for Ty Emberson on Wednesday.

    The Coyotes are essentially using their ample cap space to take the overpaid Nemeth in exchange for picks to support their rebuild. Nemeth will likely have a regular spot in Arizona's lineup next season, but he only put up seven points through 63 games with the Rangers last year, so don't expect him to turn into a viable fantasy option in 2022-23.

  • Rangers' Patrik Nemeth: Returning to action

    Nemeth (personal) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Nemeth will slot into a bottom-pairing role after missing the last three games due to personal reasons. He's picked up five points through 57 contests this season.

  • Rangers' Patrik Nemeth: Absent from practice

    Nemeth was not in attendance for Monday's practice for personal reasons, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    The team didn't provide any details on Nemeth's status ahead of Tuesday's clash with Carolina. Even if Nemeth is with the team for that matchup, he's far from a lock for the lineup considering he has been a healthy scratch in two of the team's last three contests. As such, Nemeth should be considered a relative non-factor in fantasy contests moving forward.

  • Rangers' Patrik Nemeth: Scores on wraparound

    Nemeth scored a goal on two shots, levied four hits, blocked four shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Stars.

    Nemeth got deep late in the second period and just squeaked the puck over the line for the Rangers' fifth goal. It was the game-winner, and it was also the defenseman's second tally of the season. He's up to four points, 40 shots on net, 83 hits, 82 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating through 45 contests this season, mainly playing in a bottom-four role.

  • Rangers' Patrik Nemeth: Pots first goal with Rangers

    Nemeth (personal) scored his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Blues.

    After missing the last three games for the birth of his child, Nemeth added an on-ice milestone to his personal one, potting his first goal as a Ranger in his 40th game with the team. With Blues netminder Ville Husso pulled out of position, Nemeth had a gaping cage to shoot at. His shot ticked off a St. Louis skater but still made its way on target, resulting in the game-tying third-period goal.

  • Rangers' Patrik Nemeth: Back at it

    Nemeth (personal) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Rangers, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Nemeth is expected to return to a bottom-pairing role following his three-game absence. He's picked up two helpers through 39 contests this campaign.

  • Rangers' Patrik Nemeth: Unavailable Thursday

    Nemeth (personal) will not be in Thursday's lineup against the Capitals, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

    Nemeth has now missed eight of the Rangers' last nine games. He has two assists and a minus-11 rating on the year. Either Libor Hajek or Zac Jones will slide into the lineup in his absence.

  • Rangers' Patrik Nemeth: Physical in return

    Nemeth (undisclosed) totaled two blocked shots and three hits in Sunday's 2-1 win over Ottawa.

    Nemeth added a shot and a plus-1 rating to his ledger in his first action since Jan. 22. His skill set doesn't translate to much fanfare in fantasy, but Nemeth's physical style helps the Rangers grind out low-scoring wins like this one, and he didn't hesitate to put his body on the line in his return from injured reserve.
