McGinn (upper body) will return to the lineup against the Flyers on Thursday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

McGinn returns following a two-game stint on the sidelines and appears to have benefitted from the holiday break. Prior to getting hurt, the winger had notched four points in his previous eight outings. While his production level isn't terrible for a bottom-six role player, it's important to note he registered a mere six shots on goal over that stretch, which limits his chances to put one in the back of the net.

McGinn (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Senators, Matthew DeFranks of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

McGinn was scratched just before the opening faceoff Friday and coach Bob Boughner labeled him day-to-day after the contest. The extent of his injury remains unclear, but the winger's next opportunity to draw in arrives Thursday against the Flyers. Connor Brickley draws into the lineup in his place again Saturday.

McGinn (upper body) is day-to-day with his injury, according to Panthers coach Bob Boughner, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

For what it's worth, Olive doesn't believe McGinn has a concussion given that the winger was able to take warmups ahead of Friday's game against the Wild. Either way, since the Cats play again Saturday night (facing the Flyers at home), one can expect a rather quick turnaround in terms of McGinn getting checked out further. The journeyman has scored five times to complement eight assists through 34 games this season, which isn't all that bad when you consider he only averages 13:43 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

McGinn took part in warmups ahead of the contest but wound up a late scratch in favor of Connor Brickley. The reason behind his late departure from the lineup has yet to be revealed, but the winger has an opportunity to get back at it Saturday against the Senators if minor.

McGinn found the net with his only shot on goal and dished out four hits in Tuesday's 5-4 win against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

McGinn had previously gone five games without a point and 12 contests without putting the biscuit in the basket, but made the most out of his 15-plus minutes of ice time Tuesday. While McGinn has shown flashes of potential over his career, inconsistency has prevented the 10-season veteran from establishing himself as a bona fide power forward in the league.

McGinn provided an assist in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Rangers at home, stretching his points streak to three games.

EDGE Analysis

You generally wouldn't want to look in a team's bottom-six group for fantasy options, but McGinn could be a rare exception since he's playing well and averaging 2:12 on the man advantage this season. The journeyman is up to three goals and four assists through 13 games.

McGinn pocketed a power-play goal late in the third period to spoil a shutout in the 5-1 loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

It was McGinn's first goal of the year, and his first as a Panther. Despite the score, he would finish the game minus-3, as it just simply wasn't Florida's night. The 29-year-old Canadian failed to register a point in his first three contests, but has recorded a goal and an assist over the previous two. He'll look to push that streak to three games against the Penguins on Friday.

McGinn was traded to the Panthers on Sunday in exchange for Jason Demers, Craig Morgan of ArizonaSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Sunday's trade, McGinn will be heading to his fourth organization over the last two years. The nine-year journeyman should provide some help on both sides of the puck and is coming off a 2016-17 campaign where he had nine goals and eight assists across 72 games. After being expected to move to right wing with the Coyotes, McGinn should be able to stay on his more natural left side with the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

McGinn missed the past three games due to personal reasons. His return comes at a good time, too, as Shane Doan (lower body) is back on the shelf.
