St. Charles, MO (January 9, 2020) – St. Louis Ambush defender Magui  (left) will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season due to a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), the team announced today. Magui was injured in the December 27 match against the Tacoma Stars at the Family Arena.

Following the injury, Magui underwent tests to determine the extent of the damage. After an MRI was inconclusive, Dr. Kevin Quigley (right), orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine physician and former St. Louis Steamers player, recommended a scope be performed and those results showed a significant tear in the ACL, requiring full replacement of the ligament.

Magui underwent successful surgery, performed by Dr. Quigley on Wednesday. He will begin the rehabilitation process January 10. The prognosis is for a full recovery and a return to action for the 2020-21 season.

Magui joined the Ambush last season, appearing in 23 of the team's 24 games. He posted 10 goals, 12 assists and 22 blocks. In five games this season, he has two assists and three blocked shots.

The St. Louis Ambush thank the medical team from BJC HealthCare, Dr. Quigley and Signature Medical Group for the great care they provide the St. Louis Ambush team throughout the season.


Before becoming a physician, Kevin Quigley appeared in 40 games over two seasons with the St. Louis Steamers from 2000 to 2001, posting 34 goals and 15 assists.
