Fantasy Summary

Punishing physical defenseman with limited offensive skills. Needs to work on his skating to reach the NHL but has middle-pair upside. Can provide a good amount of peripheral stats but not much in points.

March 2024 – Ginning has filled in admirably with the Philadelphia Flyers since being called up earlier this month. A defensive defenseman, Ginning is strong around goal, makes good reads in his own zone, and as he becomes more comfortable has shown he could be a capable third pair defenseman in the NHL. James Iacovone

May 2022 – Philadelphia signed Ginning to a two-year entry-level contract. A second-round selection back in 2018, Ginning will likely start his North American hockey career in the AHL with Lehigh Valley. The chances are that is where he will remain throughout the 2022-2023 season unless the Flyers fall on more struggles or Ginning greatly surpasses expectations. Still, Ginning possesses some NHL upside, like topping out as a reliable third-pairing defenseman with little to no offensive production. John Gove

 

June 2018 – Ginning was drafted 50th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers. Ginning is a punishing physical defenseman with great size (6-4, 205) and some puck-moving abilities but his offensive upside is very limited. Ginning can provide a good amount of hits and blocked shots in multi-cat leagues. He can make good first passes out of his own zone but he isn’t going to be a power play player at the NHL level. Captained Team Sweden at the U18 World Championship tournament and was one of the top players on that team. Most likely won’t be more than a bottom-pair defenseman but with improved skating could potentially become a middle-pair defenseman.  Jokke Nevalainen
