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.
Nemeth posted a game misconduct, collecting 10 PIM in the stat sheet during a 6-1 victory against the Rangers on Friday.
The defenseman earned his ejection at the end of the second period, along with Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello. With the game misconduct, Nemeth's PIM for the season shot up to 35 in 37 games. He only has one goal and five points, but Nemeth is a strong contributor in the defensive categories. In addition to the PIM, he owns a plus-3 rating, 72 blocks and 69 hits.
Nemeth chipped in an assist during Sunday's 4-3 overtime win against Anaheim.
Nemeth picked up his first helper since Opening Night, doubling his season total in the process. Still, the bottom-pairing defenseman is not much of a fantasy option, with only two points in 15 games this year.
Nemeth (shoulder) will suit up in Thursday's matchup with Buffalo.
It wasn't immediately clear who would get bounced from the blue line to make way for Nemeth, but Mark Barberio would seem to be the odds-on favorite. The 26-year-old Nemeth notched a helper Opening Night, along with three shots, one hit and a pair of blocks.
Nemeth (shoulder) participated in practice Monday wearing a non-contact jersey, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.
Nemeth will join the team on its two-game road trip, which is a good indication he might be eligible to suit up sooner rather than later. Even when the Swede is healthy, there is no guarantee he will displace Mark Barberio or Nikita Zadorov from the lineup -- which limits his fantasy value.
Nemeth (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday.
Nearing full health from offseason shoulder surgery, Nemeth has shed his red non-contact jersey at practice. He appears on track to be ready to for the Avs' first regular season game on Oct. 4, and could very well see some preseason action in the near future.
Nemeth (shoulder) re-signed with Colorado on a one-year deal worth $2.5 million on Thursday.
The significant uptick in pay was well deserved for the stay-at-home defenseman, as he ranked fourth among all blueliners with a plus-27 rating in 2017-18. Nemeth also led Colorado in blocked shots (185), while setting career marks in goals (3), assists (12), and games played (68).
Nemeth is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, The Denver Post reports, adding that the defenseman might not be ready for training camp.
Between Nemeth filing for arbitration and the Avs arbitrarily disclosing that he went under the knife to fix a shoulder injury, the defenseman's fantasy value is decreasing precipitously. This is particularly unfortunate because Nemeth achieved career highs across the board last season -- his first in Colorado -- including 15 points, 66 hits, 185 blocked shots and an impressive plus-27 rating.
Nemeth filed for salary arbitration Thursday, according to NHLPA.com.
Nemeth is listed among 44 restricted free agents who made the first step in applying for salary arbitration. Arbitration hearings will take place from July 20 through Aug. 4. However, the two sides are free to continue negotiating an extension for the defenseman in the meantime.
Nemeth, who's a pending restricted free agent, received a qualifying offer from the Avalanche on Monday.
Nemeth didn't exactly fit well with the Stars -- who took him in the second round (41st overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft -- but the Swede enjoyed a breakout campaign with the Avalanche this past season, as he posted three goals, 12 assists, and a whopping 185 blocked shots through 68 games. His expiring one-year contract is only valued at $945,000, so we can expect Nemeth to earn much more than that on his next deal.
Nemeth had his best season as a pro in 2017-18, setting career highs in goals (3), assists (12) and shots on goal (73) while posting an impressive plus-27 rating in 68 contests.
Nemeth doesn't have enough offensive upside to be considered a viable option in most fantasy formats, but he developed into a solid shut-down defender for Colorado this season, and should continue to grow into that role in 2018-19. The 6-foot-3 Swede will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the Avalanche will almost certainly extend him a qualifying offer in order to avoid the risk of losing him to another defenseman-needy NHL club.
Nemeth recorded two assists, three blocked shots and a plus-4 rating during Friday's 7-1 win over Minnesota.
After struggling to land a permanent spot in the Dallas lineup the past four years, Nemeth has carved out a steady role with the Avs this season. In particular, he's seen his ice time climb to 22:23 per game while posting a plus-9 rating and 1.16 relative Corsi For percentage through his past 10 contests. It's a noted improvement for the 26-year-old Swede. Still, Nemeth shouldn't be confused with a reliable fantasy asset in the majority of settings. He has just 14 points and 60 shots through 50 games for the campaign and isn't receiving power-play looks.
Nemeth (undisclosed) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's tilt versus Tampa Bay, Adrian Dater of BSN Denver reports.
Nemeth will suit up after a 12-game absence due to his undisclosed ailment. The defenseman notched one goal and five helpers in a dozen outings this year and needs just two more points to set a new career high. After being trapped in the backlog of blueliners in Dallas, Nemeth should feature on a regular basis as long as he can stay healthy.
Nemeth (undisclosed) was designated for injured reserve Friday, per the NHL media site.
Nemeth was already ruled out for Friday's clash with Ottawa and will now miss Saturday's matchup as well. After a slow start to the year, the defenseman has tallied a trio of points in his last three outings. Until Nemeth is given the all-clear Chris Bigras should get a look on the blue line.
Nemeth (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Senators.
The 25-year-old blueliner won't be available for Friday's contest, but there's still a chance he'll be cleared to play in time for Saturday's matchup with Ottawa in Sweden. Nemeth has been impressive this season, notching one goal and five assists while posting a plus-6 rating in 12 games, so his owners will want to keep an eye on his status ahead of Saturday's tilt.
Nemeth (lower body) is expected to return to Colorado's lineup for Friday's game against the Golden Knights.
The 25-year-old defender has enjoyed a solid start to the campaign, tallying three assists and an impressive plus-7 rating in seven games. If he's able to return to action as expected, Nemeth will skate with Tyson Barrie on the Avalanche's second pairing against Vegas.
Nemeth (lower body) will not be in the lineup against the Stars on Tuesday, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.
There's no doubt Nemeth had this game circled on his calendar after Dallas waived him coming out of training camp. Unfortunately for the defenseman, he will miss his second game of the year due to injury. In order to boost the Avs' blue-line depth, the club recalled Andrei Mironov from a conditioning assignment in the minors.
Nemeth sustained a lower-body injury in Thursday's 4-3 home loss to the Blues, The Denver Post reports.
The Swede cannot catch a break, as he'd just returned from a shoulder injury. Nemeth posted three assists through the first four games, but he's caught in a three-game pointless skid with these ailments paying him absolutely no favors. However, the Avalanche won't play again until Tuesday's home clash with the Stars, providing him with ample time to recover from what appears to be a day-to-day ailment.
