LW - ANA
Brock McGinn scored his 12th goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Kraken.
The veteran winger has just two goals since joining the Ducks on March 3rd. He does not produce enough offence to warrant a roster spot in any format. Leave him on the waiver wire to close out the season in your league.
Brock McGinn scored his 11th goal of the season and first as a Duck in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.
McGinn came over from Pittsburgh in the Dmitry Kulikov trade, and has immediately found himself on the top line in Anaheim. Skating alongside Trevor Zegras can only boost McGinn's stock, though to be fair, it was not the highest anyways as he has just 11 goals and six assists on the year. This late in the year, it makes sense to keep McGinn watchlisted in case he is able to build off this, but for now, he can be left on the waiver wire.
McGinn now has goals in back to back games after scoring the Penguins only goal, on one shot, in Saturday's 1-0 win over Anheim.
McGinn has a plus four rating, seven goals, 11 points, 48 shots on goal, 43 hits and 24 blocked shots. He is not on the fantasy radar at this time.
McGinn scored the first goal of the game only 16 seconds after face off as the Penguins beat the Flyers, 3-2.
McGinn does have six points in the Penguins' first nine games and is seeing about 16 minutes of ice time. He is, however, relegated to the third line with no power play opportunities.
Brock McGinn has signed a two-year, $4.2 million extension with the Carolina Hurricanes, avoiding arbitration.
McGinn finished the 2018-19 season with 10 goals, and 26 points, while appearing in all 82 games. That was a slight decrease from the 2017-18 season where he managed 16 goals, and 30 points in 80 contests. McGinn is a valuable role-player for the Hurricanes, he offers some secondary scoring, as well as providing something of a physical element for his team. However, as far as fantasy goes, McGinn can be safely avoided.
