Jamie McGinn scored in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

McGinn got the Sabres on the board when he buried a slap pass from Mark Pysyk. The 27-year-old has scored in each of his last three games against Vancouver. He now has three goals and six points in 14 games this season. Jack Eichel picked up his first career assist on McGinn's goal.
Nov 8 - 9:24 AM

Jamie McGinn scored his first goal as a member of the Sabres on Tuesday night.

He produced a power-play marker in Buffalo's 4-3 overtime win against Philadelphia. McGinn hadn't scored a goal since Nov. 4, 2014 because he missed most of the 2014-15 season due to a back injury. McGinn has three points in nine games this campaign.

Jamie McGinn contributed a pair of assists in Buffalo's 4-2 win over Columbus on Monday afternoon.

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.

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.

Ontario native Jamie McGinn is happy to be playing closer to home in Buffalo this season.

"Being close to home, everyone's super excited to have me here," McGinn said. "It's just a great opportunity playing in front of family and friends and such a great organization. It's been a long time, but I'm ready to get back into things." He played in just 19 games last season with Colorado because of a back injury. McGinn dressed in his first preseason game with Buffalo on Wednesday night.

Jamie McGinn is joining teammate Ryan O'Reilly as they head to Buffalo in exchange for Nikita Zadorov, Mikhail Grigorenko, JT Compher and the 31st overall pick.

McGinn lost all but 19 games to a back injury in 2014-15, but will still only be entering his age-27 season when October rolls around. In 2013-14, when McGinn skated in 79 games for Colorado, he set a career high of 19 goals and 38 points. McGinn has one season left on his contract with a $2.95M cap hit.

Jamie McGinn (back) should be fine by training camp.

McGinn had four goals and six points in 19 games last season. If he's healthy, he might flirt with the 40-point mark like he did in 2013-14.

Coach Patrick Roy confirmed that Jamie McGinn (back) won't return this season.

McGinn underwent back surgery in November and it was expected that he wouldn't play again this campaign. Now, we know for certain. McGinn posted four goals and six points in 19 games prior to having the procedure.

Jamie McGinn will likely miss the rest of the season after undergoing successful back surgery.

"It went really well," coach Patrick Roy said. "But I would not be surprised if he's out for the season. We're certainly not going to push him on it." McGinn suffered a back injury against New Jersey on Nov. 15 and he hasn't played since then.

Jamie McGinn will in fact have to undergo back surgery on December 10th.

According to Avs' head coach Patrick Roy, there is a chance that Jamie McGinn could have season-ending back surgery.

Nothing has been confirmed just yet, but the possibility does exist. The 26-year-old has missed Colorado's last five games because of his back injury. He has four goals and six points in 19 games this season.

The Colorado Avalanche have placed Jamie McGinn (back) on the injured reserve list.

McGinn missed Thursday's game due to the ailment. He has four goals and six points in 19 contests in 2014-15.

Jamie McGinn is questionable to play on Thursday because of a back injury.

He didn't practice on Wednesday for a second straight day due to the ailment. If McGinn can't play then Dennis Everberg will skate alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Daniel Briere.

Jamie McGinn will continue to skate on Colorado's second line.

He will play alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Jarome Iginla, which will no doubt give him at least fringe fantasy value. Alex Tanguay will continue to skate on the Avs' third line, featuring John Mitchell and Dennis Everberg. That won't do wonders for Tanguay's hockey pool worth.
