Greg Nemisz (born Gregory Nemisz on June 5, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL).
Greg is a prospect of the Carolina Hurricanes and he was selected in the first round (25th overall) at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames. He made his NHL debut in 2011.
Greg 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.
Greg's season led the Calgary Flames to select him with their first round selection (25th overall) at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft who projected him to become a power forward.
Greg 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.
Then, Greg 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.
Greg 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. Greg's play earned him a spot on the Canadian junior team for the 2010 World Junior Hockey Championships where he won a silver medal.
Greg 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.
Greg 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.
On April 23, 2011, Greg made his NHL debut in a 6–3 loss to the San Jose Sharks. He spent the majority of the 2011–12 season in Abbotsford and missed five weeks of play due to a shoulder injury.
Greg earned several recalls to Calgary, playing both on the wing and at centre as the team's needs required.
On July 5, 2013, Greg was re-signed by the Calgary Flames to a one-year two-way contract.
On December 30, 2013, the Flames traded Greg to the Carolina Hurricanes for Kevin Westgarth.
