Monroe: Former Griffins, Walleye goaltender Pat Nagle considers his next move

Pat Nagle has served as an integral part of the Red Wings’ minor league system as a starting goaltender for both the Toledo Walleye and Grand Rapids Griffins, but he enters this summer as an unrestricted free agent-to-be, and Nagle spoke with the Toledo Blade’s Mark Monroe regarding his uncertain future:

“I want to build off of the [2019-20 season]. Last year was such a different year, you don’t really want to close the book on your career on that note,” he said. “But if that’s the way it works out, that’s the way it goes and I’ve had [11] years of professional hockey and I’m fortunate to be able to say that.”

Nagle said he will get together with his family and agent to determine the best course of action.

“We’ll see if the best option is to stay in North America or if the best option to go to Europe or if it’s best just to call it,” he said. “We’ll see what happens in the next month. It’s another summer of being a free agent.”
