We’re continuing on the high numbers in Flames history that were either occupied by rentals, rookies, call ups or one and done’s with Calgary. The number 48 has only been worn twice in Flames history and it’s not fair to decide which of the two players who’ve worn 48 is better. And it’s not fair because neither wore it very long at all.
Greg Nemisz wins this prestigious award, by playing in 15 total games with Calgary over the course of two seasons. He was drafted by Calgary with the 25th overall pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and even though he was a late first round pick, he never made any significant impact with the Flames.
Greg Nemisz wore the #48 for the Flames from 2011-12. In two trips to Calgary he would play in 15 total games with one assist to his name. That’s the “best” #48 has to offer. After his 15 games with the Flames, Calgary would trade him to the Carolina Hurricanes for Kevin Westgarth in 2013. He would play two more seasons in the AHL with the Charlotte Checkers before retiring, never getting back to the NHL. He is currently an assistant coach with the Oshawa Generals.
