Greg Nemisz became the latest member of the Abbotsford Heat to earn an NHL recall, as he was summoned by the Calgary Flames.

Greg Nemisz became the latest member of the Abbotsford Heat to earn an NHL recall, as he was summoned by the Calgary Flames on Saturday morning.

The sophomore pro is off to a solid start to the 2011-12 season, having posted 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists) in 26 games with the Heat this fall. A mainstay on the Heat’s second line, the versatile forward has upped his offensive productivity (he notched 33 points in 68 games as a rookie) while playing a responsible two-way game and serving as a key penalty killer.

Nemisz, a 21-year-old Courtice, Ont. native, got into six games with the Flames last season, posting one assist and a -1 rating during that stint.
