History

2007-08: Nagy completed his second full season of junior with the Oshawa Generals, scoring five goals and 12 assists to go along with 47 PIM's in 57 games. He saved his best for the post-season however, scoring six goals and three assists in 15 playoff games. Despite not being ranked by Central Scouting, the Devils selected him in the fifth round of the 2008 NHL draft.

2008-09: Nagy quickly made a name for himself in the Devils organization with a great year for an Oshawa Generals squad that threw in the towel this year, dealing phenom, and eventual 2009 number one draft pick, John Tavares to the London Knights at the OHL's trade deadline. Nagy easily set career bests in all offensive categories. While playing a lot with Tavares before he got traded obviously helped his numbers somewhat, his improved numbers also came by some of his own hard work. In 63 games, he finished third overall in scoring for the Generals with 17 goals and 38 assists, while also posting 83 PIM's, good enough for second on the squad. His -19 rating was more a reflection of the team's struggles, rather than his own play.

2009-10: Nagy would split time between the AHL and ECHL, appearing in 31 games with Lowell and 33 with Trenton. He would tally 4 goals and 13 points with Trenton, to go with his 3 goals and 6 points with Lowell.

2010-11: Nagy's progress seemed to hit a plateau in his second pro season. After playing 31 AHL games as a 20-year old the previous year, Nagy appeared in just 13 games for Albany – spending most of the year with ECHL Trenton. A hard-working, defense-first forward, Nagy had 1 assist and was -3 with 8 PMs for Albany. In 57 games for Trenton he scored 9 goals with 13 assists and was -9 with 23 PMs. Both Albany and Trenton failed to reach the playoffs in their respective leagues.

Talent Analysis

Nagy is a defensive minded checking forward who has a strong work ethic and gives a 110% whenever he is on the ice. He skates well, and plays with a little bit of an edge. Not surprisingly given his tools, Nagy is a solid and reliable penalty-killer. He is not blessed with much skill, but you’ll always get an honest effort from him.

Future

Nagy’s upside is very limited and he’s going to have to work his tail off if he ever wants to have a future in the NHL. If he does indeed get that far, he won’t be more than a fourth-line/depth forward type.
