Buffalo GM Tim Murray said he has spoken to Jamie McGinn's agent about a contract extension.

Murray and Thane Campbell have had discussions two or three times in recent weeks regarding the pending unrestricted free agent. "I hope that they're talking a lot but it's out of my control," McGinn said. "What I can do comes on the ice, being a good teammate and trying to help this team win. That's between them. My focus in here is to play hockey. I like it here and that's why I have an agent to deal with that kind of stuff." He has been a pleasant surprise this year with 11 goals and 22 points in 52 games.

McGinn's agent, Thane Campbell, said he has not had any contract talks with the Sabres yet.

The assists were McGinn's first points with the Sabres this season. McGinn didn't have a point in his previous two outings. He had a helper on Ryan O'Reilly's power-play goal and another on Jack Eichel's second career marker. McGinn isn't expected to have much fantasy value this year.
Tue, Oct 13, 2015 07:27:00 AM

Jamie McGinn scored two goals in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

McGinn was a bit of an afterthought in the trade that saw Ryan O'Reilly come to Buffalo. McGinn scored both his goals in the third period, and one of the two came on the man-advantage. The 27-year-old will look to bounce back from a tough season that only saw him play 19 games because of a back injury. He should be a regular in Buffalo's lineup but his fantasy value will be very limited.
