Tye McGinn(16) Adirondack Phantoms

Philadelphia Flyers‘ 4th round pick in the 2010 draft (#119 overall) left wing Tye McGinn(16) is in the second season of this three-year entry level contract.

In his rookie season with their AHL affiliate Adirondack Phantoms, the 6’2″ 205 lbs. played a big game, unafraid to get into those situations on ice that some other players would shy away from.

The 22-year may not quite be ready for his first NHL call-up (not that it’s going to matter this season) but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him cut his existence into a strong 4th line guy and effect special teams, pk specialist when he has a few more seasons to his credit.

In 63 regular season games he scored a healthy 12 goals but somehow only feed another scorer for 6 assists (dish that thing) and was a strong -1 plus/minus. He put up impressive numbers in his last two years of juniors.

Not surprising his older brother is Jamie McGinn. They play a similar game of pro hockey.
