Ladislav Nagy (pronounced [nɒɟ]) (born June 1, 1979) is a Slovak professional hockey player who plays for Jokerit in Helsinki, Finland.

Early life and career[edit]

Nagy was born in Šaca, Czechoslovakia in 1979, and began his career in 1995 as a junior by HC Košice in the Slovak Extraliga. He was drafted 177th overall in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft by the St. Louis Blues. After being drafted Nagy came to North America and played with the Halifax Mooseheads on the QMJHL for the 1998–99 season and was named the fans 7th most popular player during the 15 year celebrations.

Nagy made his professional debut in the AHL playoffs later that year with the Worcester Ice Cats. Nagy played with the Blues then from 1999 to 2001, and was traded to the Coyotes with Michal Handzus, Jeff Taffe and a first round pick in the 2002 draft in exchange for Keith Tkachuk.[1]

On February 12, 2007, Nagy was traded to the Dallas Stars for winger Mathias Tjarnqvist and a first-round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.[2] On July 2, 2007, Nagy signed with the Los Angeles Kings,[3] after coming off a disappointing stint in Dallas.[4] However Ladislav was limited to only 38 games during the 2007–08 season due to injury.

On August 18, 2008 Nagy signed with Cherepovets of the Russian Kontinental Hockey League for two years worth 5.6 million. Nagy intended to use this time to get back to the NHL by regaining his form and health.[5]

In December 2010, Nagy signed for Swedish strugglers Modo Hockey for the rest of the season, joining compatriot Ľuboš Bartečko at the club.[6]

On August 1, 2013, Nagy returned to his original club in Slovakia, HC Košice, on a one-year deal for the 2013–14 season.[7]
