Nemec is an offensive-minded, risk-taking, two-way defenseman who is present in all three zones. He is an excellent puck-moving defenseman. He was great in defensive puck retrievals and in transition game. On the retrievals he shoulder checks, scans his option and knows immediately what he has to do next. Nemec can skate the puck up ice as well as exit the zone with an accurate pass. His vision and decision making at breakouts is outstanding. He stretches the ice and uses all the space available as he joins the rush on the weak side on the breakouts. With the puck on his stick he has the passing skills and awareness to find his teammate on the weak side. In the offensive zone, Nemec was walking the blue line, beating opponents with nice little deceptions. But especially later in the game, Nemec was hitting the legs in front of him with his wrist shots. He was good defensively, angling and forcing the forwards to the wall and breaking up plays with his active stick. His stick awareness in the defensive zone and especially defending the rush is something that stands out. Physically, he looked to be on the same page as his much older opponents. He was not involved physically too much but looked good in couple battles along the boards. Nemec tends to be too aggressive on some occasions, pinching in the offensive zone and trying to break up plays on the defensive blue line. He is a good skater with no really area of concern in my opinion. But he is not as fast as some top offensive defensemen, so even if he reads the game exceptionally well he needs to play less aggressive in some situations. At this point I personally see him as a top-10 talent and future top-pairing defenseman.
