– Ron Francis
, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled forward Brock McGinn
from Charlotte of the American Hockey League (AHL).
McGinn, 21, has totaled three points (2g, 1a) in 14 games in the NHL this season. Since his reassignment to Charlotte in December, the Fergus, Ont., native has posted 12 points (4g, 8a) in nine AHL games while being held off the score sheet just once. He ranks third among Checkers skaters with 19 points and second with 10 goals despite playing in only 19 of the team’s 31 contests. McGinn was named the AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Dec. 13, and currently has an active five-game point streak (6a) – the longest of his career and tied for the second-longest active streak in the AHL.
Prior to turning professional, McGinn totaled 172 points (93g, 79a) in 227 career Ontario Hockey League (OHL) games for Guelph between 2010 and 2014, helping the Storm reach the Memorial Cup championship game in 2014. McGinn (6’0”, 185 lbs.) was Carolina’s second-round selection (47th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft.
