McGinn signed a minor-league deal with AHL Chicago on Friday, TSN reports.
McGinn, 28, is the brother of Jamie (Florida) and Brock McGinn (Carolina). The former was drafted by the Flyers in the fourth round (119th overall) of the 2010 draft, and he's since produced 17 points (nine goals, eight assists) over 89 games between the Flyers, Sharks, Coyotes and Lightning. Still, he won't have any fantasy value unless he can parlay his minor-league deal into another NHL contract.
McGinn and Michael Leighton were traded from Tampa Bay to Arizona on Tuesday in exchange for Louis Domingue, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.
McGinn has been a minor-league staple for most of his career and has racked up 17 points in 89 career NHL games. The 27-year-old will probably provide some nice depth for AHL Tucson and could get the odd call-up in a weaker Arizona offense, but he's not likely to turn into a fantasy superstar upon this change of scenery.
McGinn was placed on waivers by the Lightning on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
McGinn logged 22 outings during the Calder Cup Playoffs for AHL Syracuse last season, notching five goals and 11 helpers. The winger has 89 NHL games under his belt and should get the occasional call-up during the 2017-18 campaign.
McGinn signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Thursday.
McGinn didn't appear in a single game with the Lightning last season, and instead spent the entirety of the 2016-17 campaign in the minors, notching 19 points (10 goals, nine assists) in 21 games with AHL Syracuse. This is nothing more than an organizational depth signing for Tampa Bay.
McGinn was waived by the Lightning on Sunday.
McGinn wasn't able to crack Tampa Bay's final roster to start the year. In the 2015-16 season, he spent much of his time with AHL Syracuse, and produced 20 goals, 24 assists, and 53 PIM in 72 contests. If he gets picked up or assigned to an AHL team and moves up into the NHL, he'll be used as a depth player, and likely won't produce much fantasy value.
McGinn signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Tuesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
McGinn spent the bulk of the 2015-16 season with AHL Syracuse, supplying 20 goals, 24 assists and 53 PIM in 72 contests. Just 25 years old, he's already had stints with the Flyers, Sharks, and Coyotes, on top of a recent cup of coffee with the Bolts. McGinn is a depth winger at this juncture, so you can avoid him in fantasy leagues until he's off that two-way contract which is bound to see him shuffle between the organization's ranks.
McGinn was recalled from AHL Syracuse and will draw into the lineup Sunday against the Hurricanes, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
McGinn has notched three assists in eight games for AHL Syracuse this season, earning him a recall and subsequent placement in the lineup on the fourth line alongside Brian Boyle and J.T. Brown. The Lightning reassigned Jonathan Marchessault to Syracuse in a corresponding move.
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 off of waivers from San Jose. He was plus-1 and registered one shot and a hit in the contest.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.
McGinn was claimed off waivers by the Coyotes on Monday, ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun reports.
McGinn was placed on waivers by the Sharks on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.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.
McGinn (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
McGinn (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.The IR placement will prevent 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.
McGinn (undisclosed) will not play against the Oilers on Monday.McGinn is not skating due to an undisclosed reason. His next opportunity to get on the ice will be against the Flames on Wednesday.
McGinn (undisclosed) did not skate in Sunday's practice, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.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.
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.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.
McGinn recorded an assist in Thursday's win over the Maple Leafs.After serving as a regular healthy scratch during various stretches earlier this season, McGinn has been in the lineup with increased frequency, but doesn't have much to show for it. The assist was his first point in six January contests, as scoring opportunities have been limited for McGinn while he remains confined to the fourth line.
McGinn will be scratched in favor of John Scott in Thursday's game against Edmonton, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.McGinn has been a disappointing signing for San Jose. He's been useful due to the injuries they're fighting through, but it's likely that McGinn will find himself scratched more often than not if the team gets healthy. That's doubly true if the team manages to get Raffi Torres back in January.
McGinn has only played three of the last eight games for San Jose, though he played in Sunday's win over Carolina.McGinn isn't getting many minutes when he is suiting up, which makes him a risky play in fantasy. Until he proves that he's a roster fixture, you're best off looking elsewhere for forwards on your roster.
McGinn had an assist and a plus-2 rating in San Jose's opening night win over the Kings on Wednesday.McGinn looked good Wednesday, but it's not yet clear where he fits into the lineup once Barclay Goodrow is healthy. McGinn may drop to the fourth line or see some games a scratch once that happens and that makes him a risky pick-up right now.
After final cuts have been made, it appears that McGinn has made the Sharks' opening night roster, according to Fear the Fin.McGinn will slot into the LW spot on the team's third line, a line that will feature two rookies. McGinn isn't ready for fantasy primetime, but keep an eye on him.
