Patrik Nemeth was born on February 18, 1992, in Stockholm, Sweden. Nemeth started to emerge as a solid two-way threat on the Dallas Stars defense while paired with Jordie Benn during a five-game stretch in February, 2016.
With Benn playing more of the stay-at-home role, Nemeth took a more aggressive approach and scored five points - all assists - as the Stars won four of five games.
Nemeth's career has been interrupted by a series of injuries. The most severe was a lacerated arm that cost him more than four months during the 2014-15 season, one in which Nemeth earned a spot on the Stars roster right out of training camp.
A second-round pick (No. 41) of the Stars in the 2010 NHL Draft, Nemeth made his NHL debut on April 1, 2014 in a 5-0 victory against the Washington Capitals, and he played eight games down the stretch in the 2013-14 season. He also played five Stanley Cup Playoff games, all in the first round against the Anaheim Ducks, but his biggest postseason moment came after he was returned to Texas for the American Hockey League playoffs.
Appearing in 18 playoff games, Nemeth scored the Calder Cup-winning goal in overtime of Game 5 of the finals against St. John's to finish the AHL playoffs with five points (one goal) and a plus-5 rating.
It wasn't the first time Nemeth stood out when it mattered most. Playing for Sweden at the 2012 World Junior Championship, he had five assists and a plus-7 rating in six games to win a gold medal.
Two years earlier, Nemeth helped Sweden win a silver medal at the Under-18 World Championship when he had two assists during a six-game tournament run.
