Tye McGinn, LW
Hometown: Fergus, ON, CAN
Drafted: 2010 by Philadelphia Flyers, 119th Overall
May 2017 – A fringe NHL forward, McGinn has been a mainstay for the Syracuse Crunch since coming from the Arizona Coyotes organization. He's contributed significantly to the Crunch' depth offense through their AHL playoff charge. With plenty of offensive potential plugging the pipeline, McGinn will likely remain an AHLer for the foreseeable future. Brayden Olafson
September 2016 – Tye McGinn is coming up on his second year with the Lightning organization. After just playing two games with the NHL club last year, 2016-2017 will be a year where McGinn will need to focus on his shot and offensive presence in order to accumulate more NHL games. He has already proven he can effectively participate at the AHL level, scoring 44 points in 72 games with the Syracuse Crunch last season, but in order to become a reliable NHL forward he’ll need to improve his scoring ability. Max Marco
October 2013 – The Philadelphia Flyers have called up Tye McGinn in response to recent team injuries. McGinn has one goal so far this season. Expectations are that he will be on the team for at least a week. Jenn Lardani
June 2013 – With the Flyers in a tight cap situation, the outlook is positive for McGinn as he is a cost effective versatile option for the team to use as needed on the lower lines. In 18 NHL games last season, he posted five points and dropped the gloves a trio of times. He has struggled to duplicate his productive ways since turning pro, but few in the organization’s system have posted considerable point totals for a while, yet his history shows upside. His claim on a roster spot may hang on Scott Laughton’s status with the team and could make him AHL bound for a third season. Considering the lack of depth in the organization he may slot into a strong position on the left side sooner than later and may be worth stashing in deep leagues. Jason Banks
February 2013 – McGinn is a hardworking grinder with good energy and good size. At the pro level, he has had some minor success and scored in 2 consecutive games and logged some power play time. He also has had some experimental playing time with the top line when called upon. McGinn has been plugged into duty mostly due to injuries and he simply doesn’t log enough playing time to be a factor.
Fantasy Outlook: D
Upside is 30 points, and helps in the physical categories.
McGinn first NHL goal against Florida 1-26-13
