Quad City Mallards forward Gergo Nagy has been recalled by the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League, the Mallards have announced.
Nagy, 24, joined the Wolves in time for the fourth game of Chicago’s Calder Cup playoff Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Rochester Americans last night but did not play in that contest. Nagy was called up by the Wolves for the third time this year in the wake of the Mallards’ season ending loss to the Allen Americans Wednesday night in game seven of the Central Hockey League President’s Cup semi-finals. After dropping game four 7-2 yesterday evening, Nagy and the Wolves will host the fifth and deciding game of their series against the Americans tomorrow.
Nagy scored three goals and added an assist over the Mallards’ 14 playoff games after scoring twenty times and recording 54 points in 64 games during the regular season. The 6’ 3”, 212-pound native of Dunaujvaros, Hungary, finished what was his first regular season in North America tied for second in the CHL in shorthanded goals (3) and tied for tenth in plus/minus rating (+18).
Nagy was first called up to the Wolves on February 27 and made his AHL debut on March 2 in a 4-0 Chicago win over the Iowa Wild before returning to the Mallards the following day. He rejoined the Wolves on April 14 for one game against the Rockford IceHogs
Nagy’s is the fifteenth 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.
