Prior to turning professional, Nemeth played major junior hockey with the Cornwall Royals in the Ontario Hockey League. He went on to play 12 seasons of professional hockey, including parts of 11 seasons in the ECHL, where he was selected three times as the ECHL Defenceman of the Year. In 2003, Nemeth was named to the ECHL 15th Anniversary First Team, and in 2009 Nemeth was inducted into the ECHL Hall of Fame.


During the 1993–94 regular season, Nemeth registered 16 goals and 82 assists to set the ECHL record for most assists (82) and most points (98) by a defenceman.

On April 3, 1997, Nemeth, then of the Dayton Bombers, and Andrew Shier and Scott Burfoot of the Richmond Renegades, each scored a goal within 37 seconds to set the ECHL record for the fastest three playoff goals by two teams.
