The Quad City Mallards have signed forward Gergo Nagy to a standard player contract, the Mallards announced today.
Nagy, 28, returns to the Mallards after first playing for the club in 2013-14. The 6-foot-3, 212-pound native of Dunaujvaros, Hungary scored 20 goals and added 34 assists for 54 points in 64 games in his first stint as a Mallard. That season also saw Nagy play two games for the American Hockey League’s Chicago Wolves without recording a point.
Nagy began this season with MAC Budapest in the Erste Liga, which is composed of clubs in Austria, Hungary and Romania. Nagy scored once and picked up five assists in ten games with MAC this year after scoring 21 times and collecting 37 assists to total 58 points in 40 games with the same team last season.
Nagy last played in North America in 2014-15 when he scored 18 goals and notched 36 assists for 54 points in 56 games with the ECHL’s Kalamazoo Wings and also recorded two assists in six games with the Wolves. He returned to Europe the following season to play for Fehervar AV19, a Hungarian club in the predominantly Austrian Erste Bank Eishockey Liga.
Before his first transatlantic crossing, Nagy spent five seasons in his homeland with Fehervar AV19, Fehervari Titanok, Szekesfehervar and Miskolci Jegesmedve JSE.
Nagy also played for the Hungarian national team at the 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2016 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships.
