Philadelphia Flyers have announced that they have
recalled LW Tye McGinn from the Adirondack Phantoms,
according to general manager Paul Holmgren. The
move comes as the Flyers also placed C Vincent
Lecavalier on injured reserve. McGinn will be
eligible for Philadelphia's next game on Monday
night at the Ottawa Senators.
This is the third call-up to Philadelphia this
season for Tye McGinn. The 23-year-old has appeared
in six games for the Flyers scoring three goals
and recording four PIM. He also appeared in 18
games for the Flyers last season, scoring 3-2-5.
For his NHL career, McGinn has played in 24 total
games with the Flyers scoring 6-2-8. In the American
Hockey League, he has played in 127 career games
with the Adirondack Phantoms scoring 31-20-51
with 115 PIM.
McGinn has played in 18 games for the Adirondack
Phantoms this season scoring 5-2-7 with 18 PIM.
His most recent goal was Friday night when he
opened the scoring against the Hartford Wolf Pack
just over three minutes into the game as Adirondack
was on its way to a 3-0 victory. McGinn's most
recent game for Philadelphia was November 5.
His first call-up this season in early October
saw him get out to an impressive start. On October
12, he arrived in Detroit shortly before game-time
and then, just a few hours later, scored his first
NHL goal of the season. In his next game, he scored
two goals on October 15 against Vancouver for
the first multi-goal game of his NHL career.
Fergus, Ontario native was a fourth-round selection
of the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010 out of Gatineau
of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Tye
is the younger brother of veteran Jamie McGinn,
currently of the Colorado Avalanche, who has played
in 293 career games in the NHL scoring 51 goals
ad 42 assists. Tye's younger brother, 19-year-old
Brock McGinn, was a second-round selection of
Carolina in 2012 and is currently fourth in the
Ontario Hockey League with 24 goals in just 29
games for the Guelph Storm.

25 Terrific Seasons
Glens Falls is celebrating its 25th season
hosting an AHL team and in so doing now joins
an elite group of just 9 other active markets
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. In their 20-year
tenure at the Glens Falls Civic Center through
1999, the Red Wings won four Calder Cups. The
Adirondack Phantoms began play in Glens Falls
in 2009-10 and are in their fifth season bringing
exciting AHL action to the North Country.
