Worcester’s McGinn to answer fan questions Thursday

Worcester Sharks rookie forward Jamie McGinn will enter the AHL Chat Room to answer fans’ questions on Thursday, May 7th.

McGinn tallied 19 goals and 30 points in 47 regular-season games with the Sharks and scored twice in his first postseason contest.


A 20-year-old native of Fergus, Ont., McGinn was a second-round draft pick (36th overall) by the San Jose Sharks in 2006 and is wrapping up his first professional campaign.

Despite playing just 47 regular-season games in the AHL, his 19 goals were tied for third-most on Worcester. He registered a six-game scoring streak from Feb. 4-25, a stretch that included a goal in four consecutive contests.

McGinn also earned a handful of NHL recalls to San Jose throughout the season and recorded six points (4-2-6) in 35 games with the parent Sharks.

He stayed with San Jose through its first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series, and upon his return to Worcester on Apr. 28, tallied a pair of goals in the Sharks’ 3-2 overtime loss at Providence in Game 1 of the Atlantic Division Finals. Including the regular season, McGinn shows a team-high eight goals in nine games against the Bruins.

McGinn played four seasons of junior hockey for the Ottawa 67’s (OHL) and racked up 226 points in 243 games, including a 46-goal and 89-point showing in 2006-07.
