Sabres Alert

McGinn dealt to Ducks

McGinn

Jamie McGinn has been traded to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a conditional 3rd round pick in 2016, which could become a 2nd rounder in 2017 as long as the Ducks win two playoff rounds this year and McGinn plays in at least half of those games.

General Manager Tim Murray, continued his predilection for trading UFAs for draft picks. The Sabres have stockpiled 21 picks over the next two years.

McGinn, an unrestricted free agent, has been a pleasant surprise for the Sabres. He is fifth on the team with 27 points and goals (14). In addition, he was one of only three players to have played in every game this year for the Sabres (Jack Eichel and Rasmus Ristolainen are the others).

Clearly overshadowed by Ryan O’Reilly in the deal that sent them from Colorado to Buffalo, McGinn often played alongside him, getting top 6 minutes.

There’s always hope the Sabres can re-sign him once the season is over.

“He loves Buffalo,” said Campbell, McGinn’s agent. “He loves the city. He really likes the teammates. He really feels comfortable there. He feels the coaches have respect for his game, and he feels that it’s a good fit for him.”
