Flyers send leading scorer McGinn to AHL
Tye McGinn, the Philadelphia Flyers' leading goal-scorer, was sent to the team's American Hockey League affiliate on Friday.

Tye McGinn, the Philadelphia Flyers' leading goal-scorer, was sent to the team's American Hockey League affiliate on Friday.

McGinn has a team-best three goals in four games, but the move was needed to clear space for the expected return of forward Scott Hartnell.

Hartnell is on injured reserve due to an upper-body injury sustained during a game Oct. 11 against the Phoenix Coyotes. He has missed the past four games, but it's likely he'll be in the lineup when the Flyers play at the New York Islanders on Saturday.

In five games this season Hartnell has no points, six shots on goal and a minus-2 rating.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
