Simon Nemec's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "Nemec (6-foot, 190) is a right-handed shot with an outstanding two-way game who is close to being NHL-ready. He skates extremely well, which allows him to add to the offensive attack and be quick enough to defend in transition."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "The right-handed shot plays big minutes and brings excellent mobility, balance, puck-handling and skating to create openings for teammates."

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "Nemec may not match the size and all-around game of Jiricek, but his offensive upside may be unmatched in this draft class from the back end. His hockey sense, vision and passing ability are NHL-ready now."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "Nemec's speed, vision and power-play abilities make him a high-level offensive player from the blue line, but he's also smart and physical enough to go into the corners and get the job done defensively."

Samuel Tirpak - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "He can quarterback a powerplay well and can also defend a rush well with his smart gap control. He needs to work on defensive zone positioning and especially the consistency of his in-zone coverage but the belief is that there have been great signs of development throughout his draft year and prior viewings."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "Nemec is a calculated and poised three-zone defender who is capable of organizing play from the top of the zone, executing through seams in coverage at a high level, and starting and leading his fair share of rushes."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "Nemec is a very well-rounded defenseman. His puck game is great. He has the high-end brain to make a lot of tough plays often. Nemec can hit seams, make plays under pressure and makes a great outlet pass."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "Nemec is clearly an intelligent offensive defenseman who defends at an average level. He is best with the puck on his stick, pushing pucks up ice and making plays. The offensive toolkit and offensive sense he possesses is clearly advanced for his age."
