Simon Nemec's Player Profile

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Nov. 16th: "Another talented young Slovak player (one of three on this list), Nemec is a smooth skating, right shot defender who can play in all situations and already has significant experience playing against men in the Slovak menís league."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 11th: "Steady, all-around blueliner putting up numbers in Slovakian League after dominating at summer's under-18 Hlinka-Gretzky tournament."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 3rd: "Nemec is an all-situations defender who has played (and produced) at an advanced age-adjusted level for his position, across an extended period, at the pro level."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Nov. 3rd: "A good skater with above average puck skills who makes plays to evade the forecheck and uses those same skills to be an effective producer."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Oct. 25th: "He defends at a high level due to his mobility and a strong compete level. Offensively he pops a little more due to his great hockey sense, making a ton of plays at both ends of the rink and doing so with pace."

Craig Button - TSN - Sept. 30th: "Smart, poised and calm under pressure but has a guile and assuredness in his play that belies his age. Very smart and skilled. Can play it any way the game dictates. Projects as a top-pair defenceman."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 15th: "Nemec is a tactical, intelligent two-way defender who starts and leads his fair share of rushes; finishes plays with his feel for the offensive zone; and manages the blue line with rare poise and comfort for his age."

Samuel Tirpak - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 3rd: "He is an extremely smart two-way defenseman who excels at both ends of the ice. His understanding of space is excellent, using his vision and high hockey IQ on both the defensive and offensive sides of the game."

Steven Ellis - The Hockey News - Aug. 9: "From the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup - Nemec finished second in scoring by a blueliner with six points, often leading the team's power play or finding forwards on the rush. Cool, calm and poised, Nemec's performance was consistent throughout and was a big reason why Slovakia won a historic silver."

Ben Kerr - LWOS - Aug. 9: "With his strong skating ability, he loves to push the pace and can still get back defensively. He has the vision and passing skills to set up teammates in transition as well as to run the point on the power play."
