Today's Card - David Nemirovsky

Right-winger David Nemirovsky was toiling in the minors as the 2001-02 season began. He was once a highly regarded prospect in the Florida Panthers' system but he was unable to rise above part-time status in the NHL.
The Toronto native was a solid forward for the Ottawa 67's and Sarnia Sting of the OHL. He was chosen 84th overall by the Florida Panthers in the 1994 Entry Draft. Nemirovsky split two seasons between the AHL and the Panthers and was a consistent in unspectacular worker. He scored a goal in the 1997 post-season but Florida was unable to duplicate their Eastern Conference championship of the previous year.
During the 1998-99 season he scored 22 goals in 44 games for the IHL's Fort Wayne Komets. That year he was also traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for former first round draft pick Jeff Ware. The young forward was used strictly to provide depth on the AHL's St. John's Maple Leafs. Nemirovsky began the 2000-01 season on The Rock then signed with Sweden's HV Jonkoping where he 18 points in 26 games.
