Nemeth earned a primary assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Hurricanes.
It appeared that Nemeth was going to be held off the scoresheet for the second straight game against the Hurricanes, but the Swedish defenseman connected with newly minted captain Dylan Larkin for an empty-net tally. Expect heavy minutes for Nemeth in this abbreviated campaign, albeit with very little chance for him to secure a power-play role.
Nemeth will not be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes due to the birth of his child, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
In his stead, Brendan Perlini will enter the fourth line, and Jonathan Ericsson will enter the lineup on defense. Nemeth's first chance to return to the lineup is in Thursday's game against the Capitals.
Nemeth recorded an assist Sunday in a 4-2 loss to the Flames.
Nemeth benefited from ice time with supposed future captain Dylan Larkin, as he teamed with Brendan Perlini to set up the first of two goals for Larkin. The Swedish defenseman needs only one more point to match the 10-spot he had with the Avalanche through 74 games last season.
Nemeth recorded an assist and a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to the Islanders.
Nemeth took a puck to his face early in the game, according to Brian Compton of NHL.com, but he returned and notched his seventh assist of the year in the third period. The 27-year-old continues to work on the top line, as he's averaged 22:02 per game, but his production doesn't warrant much fantasy consideration.
Nemeth had an assist, three shots on goal, five hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
The Swedish blueliner has just three helpers in his 15 games, and only seven points through 37 outings overall. Nemeth has added 56 shots, 49 blocks, and 44 hits this season. While he plays on the first pairing for the Red Wings, he's never had more than 15 points in a season and shouldn't be considered a reliable producer in fantasy.
Nemeth produced a shorthanded assist Saturday in a 5-4 loss to the Panthers.
Nemeth joined Frans Nielsen on an odd-man rush, culminating in the veteran forward's first goal of the season. Detroit is down two defensemen -- Jonathan Ericsson (face) and Danny DeKeyser (back) -- so Nemeth has ascended to the top pair, where he's enjoying a career high in average ice time at 21:51.
Nemeth contributed an assist Thursday in a 5-2 win over the Jets.
With a goal and four helpers through 27 games, Nemeth is halfway toward matching his point total from the 2018-19 campaign, when he patrolled the blue line for the Avalanche. The Swede is averaging a career high in ice time (21:46) to help pad his offensive totals.
Nemeth (illness) is off injured reserve and skating on Detroit's top defensive pairing Saturday night in New Jersey, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Nemeth sat out five games but returns Saturday, and he'll be looking to add to his season point total. He's found the scoresheet four times in 19 contests this season. The 27-year-old is averaging 21:31 of ice time per game, by far the largest nightly workload Nemeth has ever seen to this point in his career.
Nemeth (illness) won't be in the lineup versus the Blue Jackets on Thursday.
While Nemeth will miss his fifth consecutive contest due to illness, the blueliner could be an option for Detroit's upcoming back-to-back against New Jersey and Carolina on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Once cleared to play, the blueliner should get back to logging over 20 minutes of ice time per game. Alex Biega figures to be the odd man out and will likely head back to AHL Grand Rapids.
Nemeth (illness) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Nemeth has already missed one game with the ailment, and he will miss two more. The 27-year-old blueliner is eligible to return Nov. 19 against the Senators. The Red Wings recalled Jonathan Ericsson from AHL Grand Rapids to serve as the seventh defenseman.
Nemeth will miss Tuesday's game versus the Ducks due to illness, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Nemeth was a surprise absence from pregame warmups, and now we know why. Alex Biega will enter the lineup in place of Nemeth.
Nemeth scored a goal on two shots while posting a plus-1 rating during Tuesdays 3-1 win over the Oilers.
Nemeth now has three points through the first 13 games of the season. The 27-year-old is averaging 21:27 of ice time while skating on Detroit's top pairing, but he isn't getting any time on the man advantage, and can be ignored in the vast majority of fantasy formats.
Nemeth (illness) was back in the lineup Thursday and had one blocked shot while logging 21:49 time on ice in a 5-1 loss to the Flames.
After initially being tabbed as doubtful for Thursday's game, Nemeth ended up returning to the lineup and taking a regular shift. The first-year Red Wing is averaging a career-high 21:46 of ice time per game, but has just four goals and 40 points in 256 career NHL games.
Nemeth (illness) is expected to be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Flames, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Nemeth was originally considered doubtful against Calgary due to an illness, so he's obviously recovered far faster than expected. The 27-year-old blueliner isn't a viable fantasy option due to his complete lack of offensive upside, but he'll continue to be a steady minute-muncher for the Red Wings throughout the 2019-20 campaign.
Nemeth is battling an illness that likely leaves him doubtful to suit up against the Flames, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Nemeth will get another night's rest to potentially get over the bug. With both he and Danny Dekeyser (upper body) both in doubt Thursday, Madison Bowey may be in line to dress for the Red Wings. Fortunately, Nemeth's absence shouldn't have too many fantasy ramifications given his low offensive production.
Nemeth delivered a primary assist in Saturday's 5-2 home loss to the Maple Leafs.
This was Nemeth's first point as a Red Wing. He's currently averaging a career-high 21:45 of ice time slotting in on the second pair with veteran Mike Green. Points will be few and far between for Nemeth, as he's more of a shutdown defenseman.
Nemeth is an option to assume Niklas Kronwall's workload now that Kronwall has decided to retire, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
It had been a bit unclear where Nemeth would fit in Detroit's system after he signed a two-year deal with the Original Six club in July, but given that Kronwall averaged close to 20 minutes per game last season, the potential is there for Nemeth to seize a substantial role. On the downside, he's a true stay-at-home defenseman, so the projected uptick in playing time might not be enough to deem Nemeth relevant in most fantasy formats. The 27-year-old has compiled only 39 points (four goals, 35 assists) through 250 career contests between the Stars and Avalanche.
Nemeth signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on Monday.
Detroit had a heck of a time keeping pucks of its own net last season, as it ranked 27th in the league in goals allowed at 3.32 per game. As a rugged stay-at-home type, Nemeth should help the Original Six club on the back end, though he's anything but a viable fantasy commodity, with the Swede posting a scant point-per-game average of 0.16 over six years of service time between the Stars and Avalanche.
Nemeth had an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers.
Nemeth contributed in many other ways, with four blocked shots, three hits and two shots on goal in the contest. He may have left the partridge in the pear tree, but with 104 hits and 102 blocks this season, the defense-oriented blueliner could have value in deeper formats despite only eight points to his name this year.
Nemeth picked up two assists (one shorthanded) in Friday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.
The rugged blueliner had gone 18 games without registering a point, last hitting the scoresheet Dec. 29. Nemeth may not offer much offense, but he's provided some fantasy value in formats that count other categories -- the 27-year-old has 101 hits and 95 blocked shots in 53 games to go along with a plus-7 rating and 43 PIM.
