MOLINE, Ill. (March 3, 2014) – Forward Gergo Nagy has returned to the Quad City Mallards from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League, the Mallards announced today.

Nagy signed a professional tryout agreement with the Wolves last Thursday and made his AHL debut yesterday in Chicago’s 4-0 shutout of the Iowa Wild. 

Nagy, 24, remains the Mallards’ leader in assists (29) despite missing the club’s two games against Brampton last weekend.  Nagy is also second on the team in points (43).  He has scored 14 goals, including two on the power play and two shorthanded- tied for the most on the club- in 49 games.  The 6’ 3”, 212-pound native of Dunaujvaros, Hungary, has posted a plus/minus rating of +14 in his first season in North America.

Nagy produced five points (one goal and four assists) in his last three games before being called up.  His was the eleventh AHL call-up for a Mallard this season. 

Before arriving in the Quad Cities for the Mallards’ preseason training camp, Nagy had already played six games this season in the MOL Liga- which consists of teams in Slovakia, Hungary and Romania- for Slovak club HK Nove Zamky.  He produced one goal and nine assists in those six outings.

Nagy last season played in his homeland with Miskolci Jegesmedve JSE, for whom he ripped off 16 goals and 42 assists for 58 points in 38 games.  Nagy first joined Miskolci Jegesmedve JSE midway through the 2011-12 campaign after spending the prior three and a half seasons with Szekesfehervar, a Hungarian club in the Austrian Erste Bank Eishockey Liga.  Nagy also played for the Hungarian national team at the 2009, 2010 and 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships.
