Flyers have announced that Tye McGinn (F) has
been loaned to the Adirondack Phantoms, according
to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.
Tye McGinn, 23, was originally recalled by the
Flyers two weeks ago, joining the team in Detroit
on Oct. 12. He has appeared in the last four games
with Philadelphia, posting three goals, seven
shots and four penalty minutes. He posted his
first-ever two-goal game on October 15 vs. Vancouver.
McGinn also averaged 14:31 of ice-time during
his stint which included 1:51 average time on
the power play.
McGinn began the season with the Adirondack Phantoms
and scored a goal in two games, lighting the lamp
on the first game of the year, October 5 at Hershey.
Last season, McGinn played in 18 games with the
Flyers scoring 3-2-5 with 19 penalty minutes.
He also played in 46 games with Adirondack scoring
14-12-26 with 54 PIM. The younger brother of NHL'er
Jamie McGinn is in his third season of professional
hockey. Tye McGinn had something of a dream-week
at the end of January last year.
On January 22 he made his NHL debut against the
New Jersey Devils shortly after his first in-season
recall by the Flyers. A couple days later he won
over many of the Flyers fans with his first NHL
fight against Kris Newbury of the New York Rangers
who is now teammates with McGinn in Philadelphia.
And then on January 26, McGinn scored his first
NHL goal in an away game at the Florida Panthers.
Last year, McGinn established a Phantoms' franchise
record when he scored a goal just nine seconds
into a game on March 24, 2013 against the Portland
Pirates. McGinn was a fourth-round selection of
the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 NHL Entry
Draft out of the Gatineau Olympics of the Quebec
Major Junior Hockey League.
The Phantoms are at home Friday night against
the Norfolk Admirals, AHL affiliate of the Anaheim
Ducks. For tickets, call the Phantoms at 518-480-3355.

25 Terrific Seasons
Glens Falls is celebrating its 25th season hosting
an AHL team and in so doing now joins an elite
group of only 12 other cities who can make such
a claim. It's a great hockey tradition with an
old-school feel that began with the Adirondack
Red Wings in 1979 who won four Calder Cups in
their 20-year run at the GFCC. The Adirondack
Phantoms began play in Glens Falls in 2009-2010
and are beginning their fifth season.
