Tye McGinn opened the scoring for the Coyotes on Saturday.

It was his second goal of the season and he now has seven points in 45 games. If he is on your roster, he must be a friend or a relative.

Tye McGinn will debut on fourth line to the left of Joe Vitale and BJ Crombeen in Tuesday night's tilt with Anaheim.

Through 33 games with the Sharks this season, McGinn compiled just five points, 11 PIMs, and 39 hits. For what it's worth, only Crombeen has even a modicum of fantasy value with 47 hits and 55 PIMs through 39 games this season.

The Arizona Coyotes have claimed Tye McGinn off waivers from the San Jose Sharks.

McGinn has a goal and four assists in 33 games in 2014-15. The Coyotes have been big sellers in the lead-up to the trade deadline, so claiming McGinn will provide them with someone who at least has a bit of NHL experience to help fill the void to a marginal degree.

McGinn set up Tommy Wingels for an empty net goal to seal the victory.

McGinn has been a healthy scratch 17 times this season and has a goal and five points in 28 games.

The 24-year-old has been in and out of the Sharks' lineup all season. The goal was McGinn's first of the season. McGinn received a sweet no-look pass from teammate Patrick Marleau and beat Oilers' goalie Ben Scrivens to tie the game at one. These two teams face-off again on Tuesday.

Tye McGinn has impressed in the early going at San Jose's training camp.

McGinn was dealt from Philadelphia to San Jose during the off-season and he has a real chance to crack the lineup, especially since Raffi Torres is out for months. "I hope he can," coach Todd McLellan said. "He knows he's in a dogfight with a number of other wingers in that situation. We know that he's been able to come up and produce at the NHL level, obviously in Philadelphia. We know about his family with Jamie being here. Yet, he's a different individual." McGinn helped his cause on Saturday as he scored the game-winner in a 2-1 scrimmage.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 09:48:00 AM

Tye McGinn may be able to earn a roster spot with the San Jose Sharks out of training camp.

The Sharks need someone to replace injured winger Raffi Torres and McGinn could fit the bill. He's played 36 games with the Philadelphia Flyers over the past two seasons and was acquired for a third-round pick back in July. Chris Tierney, Freddie Hamilton, Nikolay Goldobin and Daniil Tarasov may be candidates for the position as well. The competition will be settled at training camp.
