Tye McGinn to ADK, Kris Newbury to PHI

November 6, 2013

The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that Tye McGinn (LW) has been loaned to the Adirondack Phantoms and that Kris Newbury (F) has been recalled from Adirondack to Philadelphia.

Tye McGinn, 23, has been up and down between Philadelphia and Adirondack a couple of times now. He began the season with the Phantoms and played in two games on October 5 and October 11. He was recalled to the Flyers on October 12 and then sent back to the Phantoms on October 25. McGinn's latest recall to the Flyers was on Saturday, November 2. He played in two more games for Philadelphia this week prior to today's move and has played in six games total for the Flyers this season.

McGinn has two goals for Adirondack this season in six games and also has three goals for Philadelphia in six games. Previously, McGinn had been credited with three goals for the Phantoms but a video-review from the last game McGinn played with Adirondack on November 1 has since changed the scoring decision on one of those goals and credited it to Nick Cousins instead.

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. 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.

Kris Newbury, 31, rejoins the Flyers for his second tour with the team. His first stretch with Philadelphia was from October 4 through October 23 at which point he was loaned to Adirondack. Newbury played in three games with the Flyers during those almost-three weeks with his most recent NHL action coming on October 17 against Pittsburgh. With Adirondack since October 25, Newbury has played in five AHL games scoring 2-3-5. He is on a four-game point streak with the Phantoms which has included his first two goals for Adirondack. He scored in consecutive games on October 30 vs. Springfield and November 1 against Binghamton.

Newbury was acquired by the Philadelphia Flyers' organization this past off-season from the New York Rangers in a trade for Danny Syvret (D). He was originally a fifth-round selection of the San Jose Sharks in 2002 out of Sarnia of the OHL.

Newbury's late empty-net goal on November 1 against Binghamton was the 150th of his professional career which includes 144 in the AHL, 4 in the NHL and 4 more in the ECHL. He has played in 685 career professional games including 605 games in the AHL where he has scored 144-300-444. Newbury also has 75 games in the NHL where he has scored 4-5-9 with 132 penalty minutes.

He is one of only two players to have registered 60 or more points in the American Hockey League for each of the past three seasons. He has previously played with the Connecticut Whale and Hartford Wolf Pack, Grand Rapids Griffins, Toronto Marlies and St. John's Maple Leafs in the AHL in a career that is now in its 11th season having begun in 2003-04. His NHL experience has taken him to the Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers and now the Philadelphia Flyers. On October 13, 2011 (Opening Night) he registered a hat trick at the Glens Falls Civic Center for the Connecticut Whale against the Adirondack Phantoms in a game the Phantoms won 6-3.

In a funny coincidence, the two players who are exchanging places with each other were involved in a fight last year. Tye McGinn's first career NHL fight on January 24, 2013 came against Kris Newbury when the latter was still a member of the New York Rangers.

The Phantoms are currently on a four-game winning streak as they hit the road for three consecutive games in three days this weekend. Adirondack's trip begins Friday night at the Springfield Falcons at 7:00 and then continues on Saturday at the Albany Devils at 5:00 and then Sunday at the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at 3:00.

Adirondack is currently in their longest stretch between home games, 20 days. The Phantoms next play at home on November 22 on Scoville Diamond Dig Night and November 23 on Youth Jersey Night presented by Glens Falls Hospital. Call the Phantoms for tickets and further information 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.
