June 2022 – The former NCAA All-American forward had a decent first season in Springfield. The scouting reports were proven correct as McGing’s small size did not hold him back from getting to the net consistently and it paid off. He not only was able to carve out a top-six role for the majority of the year, he greatly improved his production from last season. In 67 games, he amassed 14 goals and 20 assists for 34 points. Even more impressively in nine playoff games so far, McGing has produced five points. He likely does not make the Blues next year, at least not in a full-time role. However, if he is able to continue to improve, he could be a call-up or even make the NHL in the coming seasons. Gordon Munro

 

September 2019 – The accolades are already piling up for Western Michigan’s McGing, who will be wearing the ’C’ and has been named to the NCHC’s 2019-2020 Preseason All-Conference Team. McGing will be in a leadership position this year and is a near lock for first line minutes at both even strength and on the power play. He has a legitimate at being a point-per-game player this season. Sam Stern

 

May 2019 – McGing’s season ended sooner than he had hoped but it was still a successful campaign. He finished the year with his second straight 30-point season and was recently named Captain for the upcoming season. McGing is a skilled hard worker who brings a lot of what is expected of professional hockey players to the table. Sam Stern

 

March 2019 – McGing was named Second-Team All-NCHC earlier this week. The diminutive winger was Western Michigan’s second-leading scorer through the regular season putting up 16 goals and 14 assists for 30 points in 34 games. He and Western Michigan host Colorado College this weekend for a best-of-three series in the NCHC Quarter-Finals. These two teams split a two-game set in late-February, McGing scored in both games. Sam Stern
