Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford is hoping that trading Kevin Westgarth to Calgary for Greg Nemisz helps shake his team out of its slide.

Carolina has lost five straight games to drop its record to 14-16-9 this season. "We need to change some things and we need to change them quickly," Rutherford said. "We need to stop the slide and stop it now." The trade is likely more about sending a message to the team than anything, as Nemisz isn't someone who can turn a struggling team around. The 23-year-old forward has five goals and nine points in 32 AHL contests this season.

The Carolina Hurricanes have dealt forward Kevin Westgarth to the Flames in exchange for winger Greg Nemisz.

Nemisz was a first round selection of the Flames in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, but has yet to emerge as a reliable NHLer, skating in just 15 career games. This trade has no impact on fantasy leagues.

Greg Nemisz is still pointless this season with with Abbotsford of the AHL.

Nemisz was sidelined for the first two months of the 2012-13 season with a lower body injury and made his debut on Nov. 30. "It's a huge season for Greg," Abbotsford head coach Troy Ward said earlier this month. "Here's a guy that came in with a lot of promise out of the OHL, in Windsor, and went to Memorial Cup (tournaments), did some really good things there and put up points. He's had a decent little run here in Abbotsford over the last couple of years. He's gotten a call up here and there. But this is a marquee year for Nemo."

Greg Nemisz is in better shape going into the 2011-12 season due in large part to the fact that the AHL Abbotsford Heat and the Calgary Flames both failed to make the playoffs.

"It’s never good to not make the playoffs, but from a personal standpoint, I had a lot of time to do things I never had a chance to do," Nemisz said. "I’m coming into this season really hungry to start playing hockey again. It felt like too long of a layoff. The last couple of summers, I only had two months or a month-and-a-half to train. This summer, I had four or five months, and it definitely allowed me to get out of the gym and on the ice." Nemisz also did a lot of power skating over the summer. He's not expected to make the Flames out of training camp, but the former first round draft pick should make strides in the AHL. He had 14 goals and 33 points in 68 games with Abbotsford last season.

Greg Nemisz has been sent down to the minors by the Calgary Flames.

Nemisz is a power forward who was drafted 25th overall in the 2008 Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames. He had 14 goals and 32 points in 65 games this season with Abbotsford and one assist in six NHL games. It was his first season in pro hockey and it looks like another year in the minors would benefit him.

Greg Nemisz has been called up by the Calgary Flames.

Nemisz was previously called up in late February, but then returned to the minors without playing in a single game. This time, he should make his NHL debut when Calgary plays San Jose on Wednesday. Nemisz was taken with the 25th overall pick in 2008.

Greg Nemisz spent Sunday's game in the press box.

Nemisz was called up because the Flames weren't sure if Tim Jackman and Niklas Hagman would be healthy enough to play. As it turns out, both of them were, so Nemisz wasn't able to make his NHL debut. There's a good chance that Calgary will send down Nemisz in the near future.

The Calgary Flames have recalled center Greg Nemisz from Abbotsford of the AHL.

Nemisz was the Flames first round selection in the 2008 Entry Draft, taking him 25th overall. He had 34 goals and 70 points in 51 games for the Memorial Cup champion Windsor Spitfires last season and had 13 goals and 27 points in his first AHL season with the Heat before his recall on Saturday. He will replace Niklas Hagman in the lineup if Hagman is unable to go because of the flu. Nemisz is projected to be a second line power forward at best if he is able to play to his capabilities but that will likely not happen for a few more years at least but he has demonstrated puck savvy, hard work and has an NHL caliber shot.
