• Bolts Sign McGinn To Two-Way Deal

    News: Tye McGinn signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Tuesday, NHL.com's Bryan Burns reports.
    Analysis: Tye McGinn saw 51 games of NHL action between the Sharks and the Coyotes last season, but in joining a forward-rich Tampa Bay organization, the 24-year-old is most likely bound for AHL Syracuse in 2015-16. He should provide useful depth at the minor-league level, but the winger's standing as a prospect of note is probably past due at this point.
  • Coyotes Cut Ties With McGinn

    News: Tye McGinn wasn't given a qualifying offer by the Coyotes and will enter free agency, the Arizona Republic's Sarah McLellan reports.
    Analysis: The gritty winger picked up two points and 10 PIM in 18 games after coming over to Arizona from San Jose. He'll now look to catch on with his fourth NHL franchise, but even if he avoids being stuck in the AHL, Tye McGinn will likely be looking at bottom-line minutes and frequent healthy scratches.
  • Coyotes' McGinn Picks Up Assist In Win

    News: Tye McGinn picked up an assist Thursday in a 3-2 shootout win over Vancouver. It was his first point as a Coyote after they claimed him off waivers from San Jose. He was plus-1 and registered one shot and a hit in the contest.
    Analysis: Tye McGinn played 33 games with the Sharks this year, collecting one goal and four assists. With the Coyotes' roster depleted by the trades they made at the deadline, McGinn could be a regular on their fourth line, but he won't add a lot to your fantasy squad.
  • Coyotes Claim McGinn Off Waivers

    News: Tye McGinn was claimed off waivers by the Coyotes on Monday, ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun reports.
    Analysis: A flurry of trades over the last two days have left the Coyotes with some open spots on their roster, and it appears one of them will be plugged by Tye McGinn. The 24-year-old winger showed some promise as a scorer while coming up through the QMJHL, but looks as though he'll probably settle in as little more than a third or fourth liner at the NHL level. That being said, with the Coyotes short on forward talent, McGinn should have more of an opportunity to play meaningful minutes than he enjoyed with either the Flyers or Sharks the past two seasons.
  • Sharks Place McGinn On Waivers

    News: Tye McGinn was placed on waivers by the Sharks on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.
    Analysis: Tye McGinn has been in-and-out of the lineup over the course of the season, playing in 33 games with the Sharks thus far. His placement on waivers Sunday could lead to an assignment in the minors, but his fate will be decided at some point before Monday concludes.
  • Sharks Activate McGinn

    News: Tye McGinn (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
    Analysis: Tye McGinn missed about a month with the injury, which he suffered during the Sharks' Jan. 31 win over the Blackhawks. His activation will make him a lineup option for Saturday's tilt with the Senators, but it's not clear if coach Todd McLellan plans on using him. Even when he had been healthier earlier in the season, McGinn often jostled between a bottom-six forward role and hitting the press box as a healthy scratch.
  • Sharks' McGinn Placed On IR

    News: Tye McGinn (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
    Analysis: The IR placement will prevent Tye McGinn from suiting up for at least the next three games. The newly-recalled Daniil Tarasov could receive the first opportunity to claim McGinn's spot in the Sharks' bottom six forwards.
  • Sharks' McGinn (Undisclosed) Scratched Monday

    News: Tye McGinn (undisclosed) will not play against the Oilers on Monday.
    Analysis: Tye McGinn is not skating due to an undisclosed reason. His next opportunity to get on the ice will be against the Flames on Wednesday.
  • Sharks' McGinn (Undisclosed) Misses Practice

    News: Tye McGinn (undisclosed) did not skate in Sunday's practice, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
    Analysis: Tye McGinn exited Saturday's contest against the Blackhawks in the first period and did not return due to the injury. His status for Monday's game against the Oilers appears to be in doubt, which could leave the door open for Daniil Tarasov to make his NHL debut.
  • Sharks' McGinn Injured In Win

    News: Tye McGinn left Saturday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks in the first period due to an unspecified injury and didn't return, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
    Analysis: The early exit prevented the winger from accumulated any meaningful statistics during his 4:19 of ice time before departing. He'll be considered day-to-day in advance of the Sharks' next game Monday against the Oilers until the team provides an update on his status.
