Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ladislav Nagy
Born in Saca, Czechoslovakia, Ladislav Nagy played with HC Kosice and Dragon Presov of the Slovak league. Taken 177th overall by the St. Louis Blues in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Nagy came to North America to play a year of junior. He made an immediate impact with 71 goals for the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL then joined the AHL's Worcester Ice Cats for a few Calder Cup playoff games.

A member of the CHL's All-Rookie Team in 1998-99 and Slovakia's World Junior Team, Nagy split his first two professional seasons with St. Louis and Worcester working on his overall game. In March 2001, Nagy was part of the package sent to the Phoenix Coyotes for Keith Tkachuk. In his first full season in the NHL, Nagy scored 23 goals and 42 points before surpassing those numbers the following year.

A member of Slovakia's gold medal World Championship team in 2002, Nagy continued his goal scoring prowess in 2002-03 with 22 goals, while almost doubling his assist totals to 35 and finishing the season with a career high 57 points. In 2003-04, Nagy was plagued by injuries, yet managed to surpass his career high in goals with 24 and finished with 52 points, despite playing in only 55 games.

In the 2005-06 NHL regular season, Nagy would come within one point of tying his career high in point total while competing in 51 games with the Coyotes. The following season was the last on Nagy's contract with the Coyotes, and the club was unable to re-sign both him and Captain Shane Doan before the off-season. As a result, Nagy was dealt to the Dallas Stars for winger Mathias Tjarnqvist and a first-round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

As a member of the Stars, Nagy scored 14 points in 25 games including two points in seven playoff games before signing as a free agent with the Los Angeles Kings in the summer of 2007.
