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: B-


He is able to contribute now, but may take another year before he posts stats worthy for most fantasy consideration. Likes to shoot and score goals and drops the gloves as required.
