Nemeth was in the lineup for the Stars’ first two games of the year, but will be scratched on Tuesday to allowed Esa Lindell to make his season debut. Nemeth has no points, a plus-1 rating and two penalty minutes so far this season.
The Stars re-signed Patrik Nemeth to a two-year deal worth $900,000.
Nemeth, 23, missed a significant amount of time in 2014-15 after suffering a gruesome laceration to his arm in October. He was expected to miss the remainder of the season, but returned to Dallas in early March and finished the season with three assists in 22 games. The 2010 second-round pick is expected to compete for a full-time spot on the Stars blue line in 2015-16.
The Stars recalled Patrik Nemeth from Texas (AHL) and he could play Tuesday.
Nemeth has been out with an arm injury since October 18th, but could be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Islanders. There is no word on who will come out of the lineup for Nemeth. The 23-year-old has one assist in five games with Texas, and no points in five games with Dallas.
Nemeth (arm) will return in 7-10 days; will go to Texas (AHL) when he is healthy.
Nemeth, who has been sidelined since October 18th with a deep arm laceration, is expected to be returned to Texas (AHL) in a week or so to return to action. Nemeth could have a difficult time returning to top-form and climbing his way back to the Stars roster in 2014-15.
The Stars originally announced that Nemeth would miss the rest of the regular season with an arm laceration, but it sounds like they will get him back in early-to-mid March. The Stars have a ton of young depth on D though, so Nemeth would likely be heading back to the AHL.
Nemeth will miss the remainder of the regular season with an arm laceration.
Nemeth was cut near his wrist by RJ Umberger's skate on Saturday night. Announcing that he will miss the rest of the season likely means he suffered some ligament damage and will need surgery to repair the wrist.
