Avs Bring Back McGinn On Two-Year Deal

News: The Avs re-signed Jamie McGinn to a two-year deal worth $5.9 million Thursday, ESPN reports.
Analysis: The 25-year-old registered 19 goals and 19 assists in 79 games last season and played an important role in the Avs returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2009-10.

Avs' McGinn Comes Up With Two Points In Defeat

News: Jamie McGinn tallied a goal and an assist in Wednesday's Game 7 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Despite moving down to a bottom-six role following the return of Matt Duchene, Jamie McGinn still managed to make an impact offensively, having a hand in the Avs' first two scores of the night. He finishes with two goals and three assists over the seven-game series.

Avs' McGinn Back In Bottom Six

News: With the return of Matt Duchene, Jamie McGinn has been bumped back down into the bottom six of the Avs' offensive corps. He will skate with recent call-up Joey Hishon and playoff veteran Max Talbot in Wednesday's do-or-die Game 7 at Pepsi Center against the Wild.
Analysis: Outside of Game 1 when he picked up a goal and an assist, the 25-year-old has underwhelmed in Round 1 alongside the offensively gifted Ryan O'Reilly and P.A. Parenteau, as he managed just a single assist in the five games that followed. The return of Duchene -- who should look more like his typical superstar self after shaking the rust off in Game 6 in his return from a knee injury -- allows Jamie McGinn to slide back into a depth role more suited to his skillset and comfort level. It's not uncommon for depth players to step up and shine in crucial playoff moments, so don't be too surprised if someone on McGinn's line emerges a hero in Game 7.

Avs' McGinn Expected To Play Saturday

News: Despite missing Friday's practice with a sore foot, Jamie McGinn is expected to play in Saturday's matinee against the Sharks, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It sounds like Jamie McGinn just took a maintenance day Friday, so the top-six winger forward looks good to go against San Jose. He's been held pointless in his last three games, though, so those in daily leagues may want to bench the former Shark if other options are available.

Avs` McGinn Tallies Goal and Assist In Loss

News: Jamie McGinn improved upon his career-high goal total Tuesday, firing his 18th past Carey Price. He also added an assist in the Avs` 6-3 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Voila. Just like magic, Jamie McGinn has snatched up points in each of the four games since having his linemates upgraded to Ryan O`Reilly and Matt Duchene, Colorado`s respective goal and point leaders. Most importantly, it was John Mitchell -- not McGinn -- who was bumped out of the Avs top six with the return of Paul Stastny from injury Tuesday. So, if McGinn can continue to be a complementary wingman to the two-headed monster in O`Reilly and Duchene, the stream of points should continue to flow.

Avs' McGinn Buries A Pair In Friday's Loss

News: Jamie McGinn popped in two goals - both on the power play - for his 16th and 17th of the season in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: His impressive showing is overshadowed by the fact that the Avs gave up an absurd six goals in the second period, contributing to his subpar minus-3 rating. Nonetheless, Jamie McGinn already has three points in two games since moving up to the big line with Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly. Coach Patrick Roy also has the trio together on the top power-play unit and they seem to be developing chemistry, with O'Reilly assisting on both of McGinn's second period tallies. McGinn needs just three more goals to become the sixth (!) Avs player to reach at least 20 this year, after Swedish captain Gabe Landeskog became the fifth with a goal of his own Friday. With no return in sight for Paul Stastny and P.A. Parenteau done for the regular season, the upward-trending McGinn looks ripe for the picking - check your wire.

Avs' McGinn Shuffled Again

News: Jamie McGinn joined Ryan O'Reilly and Matt Duchene on a line during Wednesday's morning skate, according to the Denver Post.
Analysis: The move was necessary after the Avalanche suffered a second key injury in as many games Monday, this time to P.A. Parenteau who will miss the rest of the regular season with an MCL issue. Jamie McGinn spent just one game with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog while filling in for the also-injured Paul Stastny, as coach Patrick Roy has elected to try John Mitchell on the top line after he posted a multi-point effort last game. The good news for McGinn is that both configurations position him for success. As long as he's hanging with the Avs potent top six, he's a prime candidate to grab some coveted "third wheel" points from Colorado's best scorers.

Avs` McGinn Gets Shot On Top Line

News: Jamie McGinn will be moved up to play right wing on the Avs' top line Monday against the Jets, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Jamie McGinn will fill the No. 1 right wing vacancy left by red-hot rookie Nathan MacKinnon, who has been shifted to center to replace the injured Paul Stastny. McGinn has been on the quiet side lately, failing to record a single point on any of Colorado's 18 goals over the last five games. He`ll also skate alongside captain Gabriel Landeskog and get a boost in power-play time, so an uptick in production is likely on the horizon. McGinn's 26 points tie him for eighth on the Avs with rookie defenseman Tyson Barrie.

Two Points For Avs' McGinn

News: Jamie McGinn had a goal and assist in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Both of Jamie McGinn's points came on the power-play, where he logged 4:54 of his 16:23 of ice time on the night. McGinn's value is typically capped at even-strength since he skates on the third line with Maxime Talbot and John Mitchell, but his continued presence on the top power-play unit with the likes of Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly allows him to maintain relevance in deep or mid-sized leagues.

Avs' McGinn Goes Minus-5 In Loss

News: Jamie McGinn -- along with linemates Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly -- went minus-5 in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers. He also took two shots on goal and laid two hits.
Analysis: The Avs really laid an egg in this one, but the Jamie McGinn-Duchene-O'Reilly line was the real goat -- they were on the ice for all five goals against and rode the pine for the only Colorado tally. With a meager 23 points in 52 games despite seeing solid ice time all year long, McGinn has looked a lot more like a jumped-up checking-liner than a true top-six forward.

Avs' McGinn: Three-Point Game

News: Jamie McGinn notched two goals and an assist in Saturday's 7-1 beatdown of the Sabres.
Analysis: Jamie McGinn started the onslaught early with a power-play tally to push the lead to 2-0 and capped the game's scoring with his 14th goal of the season. With a team-leading six shots on goal in the win and four goals and two assists in his last five games, McGinn has been prominently involved in the Avs' attack of late.

McGinn Scores In Colorado Win

News: Jamie McGinn ended a six-game scoring drought with the eventual game-winning goal in Friday's victory over Florida.
Analysis: Jamie McGinn had been quiet after a stretch of four goals in five games. The goal was his 11th of the season and he could challenge 20 tallies on the year. McGinn won't light up the league, but he could see points from playing alongside some of the Avs more talented forwards.

Avs' McGinn Putting Together Hot Streak

News: Jamie McGinn scored a goal for the third consecutive game Saturday vs. the Sharks.
Analysis: Despite seeing regular duty in the top-six this season, Jamie McGinn hasn't been much of a prolific scorer until recently. His previous career numbers would seem to suggest that his recent run of production is probably not close to sustainable.

McGinn Scores In Colorado Win

News: Jamie McGinn scored a goal and had four SOG in Colorado's 2-1 win over Philadelphia on Thursday.
Analysis: The goal was his eighth of the year and Jamie McGinn has now scored in back to back games. Hopefully this gets the winger on the right track and more goals are to come.

Avs' McGinn Scores In Colorado Loss

News: Jamie McGinn scored his sixth goal of the year in Monday's shootout loss to San Jose, and also drew a five minute major for fighting.
Analysis: With only 12 PIM all season coming into Monday, his major penalty comes as somewhat of a surprise. It could be the spark Jamie McGinn needs to energize not only himself, but the Avalanche as a whole.

McGinn' s GWG Carries Avs Past Kings

News: Jamie McGinn scored the game's only goal as Colorado edged Los Angeles in overtime Saturday.
Analysis: That's the good news. The bad news is that unless he starts shooting more often (33 shots on goal in 19 games), this tally won't have a lot of younger brothers and sisters.

Avs' McGinn Will Play On Wednesday

News: Jamie McGinn (knee) practiced Monday and will play on Wednesday against the Predators.
Analysis: Avs coach Patrick Roy said he planned on waiting to put Jamie McGinn back into the lineup until Wednesday, and he will hold true to his word.

Avs' McGinn Out Until Wednesday

News: Coach Patrick Roy said he doesn't plan on re-inserting Jamie McGinn (knee) into the lineup until Wednesday's game against the Predators.
Analysis: Roy understandably wants to see how Jamie McGinn looks in practices before he feels comfortable using him in games. The Avalanche will continue to use Nick Holden in their lineup Saturday against the Canadiens while McGinn sits in the press box.

Avs' McGinn Out Friday

News: Jamie McGinn (knee) will not play Friday against the Stars, the Denver Post's Adrian Dater reports.
Analysis: Jamie McGinn hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's contest against the Canadiens, but the Avs have already recalled Nick Holden in the event McGinn can't go. The Avalanche should pass along official word on his status for Saturday during morning skate.

Avs' McGinn Misses Practice

News: Jamie McGinn (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avs don't play until Friday night in Dallas, and the fact that there were only 22 players skating at practice probably means there's a good chance Jamie McGinn will be available to play. If the team doesn't think he'll be ready to go, they will probably recall someone to take his spot soon.

Avs' McGinn (Knee) Out Sunday Against Jets

News: Jamie McGinn (knee) will be held out of Sunday's contest against the Jets
Analysis: Jamie McGinn will get Sunday's matchup off to rest his knee, but check back regarding his status moving forward.

Avs' McGinn Scores Twice In Win

News: Jamie McGinn scored two goals in the Avalanche's 6-1 opening night win over the Ducks on Wednesday.
Analysis: Jamie McGinn tucked home two goals on feeds from rookie center Nathan MacKinnon, and the two of them seem to have developed some good chemistry in the short period of time they've been together. Keep an eye out for a lethal tandem possibly forming in Colorado.

Avalanche's McGinn Tallies Three Points

News: Jamie McGinn scored two goals Sunday, including a power-play tally, and added an assist as well. He also had two penalty minutes, five shots on goal, and was a plus-2.
Analysis: Jamie McGinn is close to putting up career-best numbers in goals, assists, and points even in this shortened season. He's only 24, so maybe there is still some room for growth.

Avs' McGinn Will Sit Wednesday

News: Jamie McGinn will be a healthy scratch against the Stars on Wednesday, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Avs coach Joe Sacco indicated that Jamie McGinn and fellow winger David Jones would both be benched for Wednesday's game. Despite the wingers both starting the year on Colorado's top line with Paul Stastny, Sacco feels the team needs more out of them, and thinks a stint in the press box may give them a wake-up call.

McGinn's Goal, Assists Wasted In Colorado's Loss

News: Jamie McGinn scored for just the second time this season in Colorado's 6-4 loss at Edmonton on Saturday. He added two assists and finished minus-1 in the losing effort.
Analysis: He's always been more of a sniper than a passer, but this season has been a complete turnaround (2-8-10 in 13 games). Before this campaign began, he had 34 goals and 25 assists in his career. His shooting percentage is a concern at just 4.7%, but that'll improve eventually, and when it does, the goals will probably again outnumber the assists.
