2019 Fantasy Outlook
McGinn is a bottom-six winger with some scoring touch, but it's probably not enough to put him on the fantasy radar in standard leagues. He regressed to 10 goals and 26 points last season after recording 16 goals and 30 points in 2017-18, and McGinn's not a big source of rough stuff, though he has managed to lay a respectable 137 hits in each of the past two seasons. With little opportunity to move up the lineup given Carolina's forward depth, the team's 2012 second-rounder is probably looking at a return to his production from two years ago as the best-case scenario.

Secures new deal

July 20, 2019
McGinn and the Hurricanes agreed to a two-year, $4.2 million contract Saturday.
ANALYSIS
McGinn filed for arbitration July 1 after receiving a qualifying offer from Carolina. The 25-year-old notched 26 points (10 goals, 16 assists) over 82 games in 2018-19. With a new deal in place, McGinn will likely continue his role on Carolina's fourth line in 2019-20.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
McGinn took a sizeable step forward in 2018-19 – his first full season in the NHL – doubling his output from 16 points to 30 (16 goals, 14 assists). He spent most of the season on the third line, but was occasionally used in a top-six role, averaging 14:30 per game – more than a two- minute spike from the previous season. McGinn was used quite sparingly on the power play (0:30), but took full advantage in the handful of games when he saw more meaningful minutes, scoring a pair of goals and adding an assist. McGinn is likely to remain in a checking-line capacity as the right side of the Canes' roster is currently jammed with the likes of Teuvo Teravainen and Justin Williams, not to mention Andrei Svechnikov – this year's second overall draft pick, who is likely to join the roster sooner rather than later. For now, McGinn will remain one of the league's better third-line wingers, but it's likely just a matter of time before he gets promoted to a scoring role.
After starting the 2016-17 season at AHL Charlotte with nine points in eight games, McGinn turned enough heads to warrant a call-up in November as an injury replacement. To his credit, the 23-year-old winger wound up securing himself a regular spot in the Hurricanes’ lineup, missing only 13 games from November to the end of the regular season. Scoring-wise, McGinn didn't fare too badly (seven goals, nine assists) considering he averaged just 12 minutes per game in a bottom-six role. However, most of his scoring came in short bursts, including a seven-point, three-game stretch in January, and a pair of goals on the last day of the regular season. Overall, McGinn doesn't warrant much fantasy consideration at this stage of his career, as he projects to fill a similar checking role this season.
