The Dallas Stars have inked Patrik Nemeth to a two-year deal.
Nemeth had three assists in 22 games with Dallas in 2014-15. He also registered two assists in eight AHL contests. He suffered a severe arm laceration in October and that's the reason he ended up playing so little. The financial terms of his new contract weren't immediately available. Jun 17 - 3:37 PM

The Dallas Stars have assigned Patrik Nemeth to the Texas Stars of the AHL.

Nemeth was limited to just 22 games this season because he suffered a severe arm laceration on October 18th versus Philadelphia. The Stars probably just want him to get some more game action because he missed so much time this season.
Apr 12 - 2:39 PM

Patrik Nemeth is expected to be back on the ice for Wednesday's contest with the Anaheim Ducks.

Nemeth has sat out the last two Stars games as a healthy scratch and has played in only 20 games this season as he missed a large chunk of the season due to an arm laceration. He has yet to score this season and has three assists with a minus one rating.
Apr 8 - 9:05 PM

Lindy Ruff believes that Patrik Nemeth has struggled recently because he missed so much with an arm injury.

The 23-year-old was a healthy scratch in Saturday's win over Nashville. Nemeth missed 58 games because of an arm laceration and he has struggled to find his game since returning to the lineup. "I think his play has tailed off from missing all of that time," Ruff said. "I thought he was maybe a weak link that I needed to get out and rest. For a young defenseman to miss that much time, I think it’s probably expected."
Apr 5 - 9:50 AM

Patrik Nemeth was scratched in favor of Jordie Benn for Saturday's tilt with the Nashville Predators.

Nemeth has been a nice story during his first 20 games this season. He's posted three points, 20 blocks, and 24 hits during that span. Benn meanwhile returns after a four-game absence. He's posted 15 points, 85 hits, and 117 blocks through 69 games this season.
Apr 4 - 8:14 PM

Patrik Nemeth has topped 20 minutes of ice time in his past two appearances.

Injuries have played a part in that, particularly the one to Trevor Daley. Nemeth has been back for four games after recovering from an arm laceration that sidelined him for most of the season. He doesn't have any fantasy value, but the 23-year-old blueliner has the potential to be a solid player at the NHL level.
Mar 12 - 10:13 AM

Patrik Nemeth will make his long awaited return to the Dallar Stars lineup on Tuesday night, after a career-threatening arm laceration back in Oct. 2014.

Through 13 career NHL games, the 23 year old Nemeth has no points, eight penalty minutes, 15 blocks, and 21 hits. "Obviously it feels really good (to be back)," Nemeth said. "I didn't even think I was going to be able to play here. To be able to play five games down there (in the American Hockey League) was good, to start playing hockey again. It's just great to be up here."
Mar 3 - 8:20 PM

Patrik Nemeth has been summoned from the minors.

He skated in five games with Texas, where he picked up one assist and five shots on goal. It's unclear if he'll play Tuesday for the first time since Oct. 18 when he suffered an arm laceration, but it's possible.
Mar 2 - 5:53 PM

Patrik Nemeth has been assigned to the minors.

He suffered an arm laceration back on Oct. 18 that was expected to end his season, but he's hoping to return after getting some work in the minors.
Feb 19 - 5:05 PM

Patrik Nemeth is expected to join the Texas Stars of the AHL this week.

"They have a five-game stretch there that will end in Austin, so he'll join them and play some games and we'll see where he is at that time," Stars GM Jim Nill said. "His recovery has gone very well, and now he needs to play some games." He could be in the lineup on Friday for the first time since he suffered an arm laceration Oct. 18 while playing for Dallas.
Feb 18 - 12:30 PM

Patrik Nemeth (arm) has been cleared for full contact.

He has been sidelined since Oct. 18 with an arm laceration, but he could be playing in the AHL in about a week.
Feb 13 - 10:57 AM

Patrik Nemeth (arm) may be able to return sometime in March.

Nemeth has missed most of the season because he suffered an arm laceration on October 18th. The 22-year-old hasn't registered a point in eight career NHL games, so his fantasy value will be non-existent if he does return. The 22-year-old was Dallas' second round pick in 2010. Nemeth's return would definitely be a feel-good story.
Jan 25 - 9:52 AM

Patrik Nemeth (arm) is working hard in an attempt to return at some point this season.

He was initially slated to miss the rest of the year after his arm was cut by a skate back on Oct. 18. "He's bound and determined to make the doctor's prognosis wrong. I always find that a good thing," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He feels he should be able to go harder, and the recommendation is to make sure everything is healed properly first, which I understand all that, but I like what he's doing. I like how hard he's working. That type of attitude is contagious, and it's something you want around your team."
Jan 19 - 11:17 AM

Patrik Nemeth (arm) will miss the rest of the regular season.

That's troubling news for the promising 22-year-old defenseman. Nemeth's arm was cut by a skate in Saturday's game against Philadelphia and it will cost him the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign after just five appearances.
Mon, Oct 20, 2014 02:03:00 PM

According to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Stars' defenseman Patrik Nemeth "could be out for months".

Nemeth left Saturday's game against Philadelphia after he was cut on the arm by a skate. The 22-year-old had no points in five games this season.
