The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that left-wing
Tye McGinn has been returned on loan to the Adirondack
Phantoms, according to Flyers general manager
Paul Holmgren. In a separate transaction, the
Phantoms have announced that goaltender Carsen
Chubak has been loaned to the Reading (PA) Royals
of the ECHL.
McGinn, 23, joined the Flyers again last
week and played in both of Philadelphia's games
this past Saturday and Sunday against Tampa Bay
and Montreal. This quick call-up was his fourth
time with Philadelphia this season. McGinn has
now appeared in eight games for the Flyers this
season, recording three goals and averaging 12
minutes of ice-time per game.
He recorded his first career two-goal game in
the NHL on October 15 against the Vancouver Canucks.
On his career, McGinn has played in 26 games for
Philadelphia scoring 6-2-8 with 23 penalty minutes.
He has six goals and 12 points in 28 games with
the Phantoms this year, and had a two-point night
(1g-1a) in Adirondack's 4-0 win over the Albany
Devils on January 4 in his most recent game with
McGinn has played in 137 career games for Adirondack
scoring 32-24-56 with 117 PIM. The Fergus, Ontario
native is the younger brother of Jamie McGinn
of the Colorado Avalanche and is the older brother
of Brock McGinn who was a second-round selection
of Carolina in 2012 and is currently one of the
top scorers in the Ontario Hockey League scoring
24-26-50 in just 32 games.
Chubak, 24, is in his rookie season of
professional hockey. The Prince Albert, Sask.
resident made an impressive Phantoms starting
debut and big splash on December 28 against the
Providence Bruins with a spectacular 38-save performance
in a 3-1 win. Included in his first full AHL games
were some incredible, diving stops through a full
two-minute five-on-three in the second period
that induced some of the most deafening cheers
at the Glens Falls Civic Center in recent memory.
Chubak has played in two games for Adirondack
including one relief appearance and is 1-0-0,
1.32, .964 for his stay with the team. He was
recalled by the team from the ECHL on Novebmer
30 after Yann Danis went down with injury. He
primarily served as the backup goalie to Cal Heeter
over the past five weeks. Chubak also has two
games in the ECHL earlier in the season with Greenville
(SC) going 1-1-0, 3.50, .894.
Last year, Chubak was one of the top collegiate
goalies in the country leading the Niagara University
Purple Eagles to the NCAA tournament going 23-7-5,
1.91, .939. He was one of 10 finalists for the
Hobey Baker Award that season along with current
Phantom Kyle Flanagan who was also up for the
honor with St. Lawrence University.

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.
