Nagy heads to Russia
Left wing Ladislav Nagy views his decision to sign a $5.6 million, two-year deal to play in the Russian Super League as a temporary stop and not a long-term plan.
“Nagy fully intends to come back to the NHL if he can find a situation where he will be given the minutes in order to produce at the elite level he is capable of,” said his agent, Matt Keator.
Nagy's biggest problem in recent years has been an inability to stay healthy, as he averaged 26 games a season missed in the three campaigns since the lockout and played just 38 last year while battling hip and neck injuries with the Kings.
He was made a bit of a scapegoat as things went south in Los Angeles, and finished only minus-2 despite playing on one of the worst teams in the league. Nagy was one of the few Kings to produce on the power play and really wasn't given many minutes when he was healthy.
Given he's only 29, I can imagine a scenario where we see Nagy in the NHL again.
