James Robert "Ginner" McGinn IV (born August 5, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

McGinn played four seasons of junior hockey for the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). His best season was the 2006–07 season, in which he tallied 46 goals and 89 points. He led the team in scoring that season.

In the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, McGinn was drafted in the second round, 36th overall, by the San Jose Sharks. After his 2006–07 OHL season, McGinn was signed to an entry-level deal by the Sharks. He appeared in four regular season games and six playoff games for their American Hockey League affiliate, the Worcester Sharks.

McGinn made his National Hockey League (NHL) debut on October 28, 2008, against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He scored his first NHL goal on October 30, 2008 against the Detroit Red Wings in only his second career NHL game.[1]

Mcginn suffers from a genetic back problems [2] that plagued him extensively during his pre-pro career. Cortisone, rehab, and major surgery in the summer of 2008 helped alleviate the pain, though the lingering effects still plague Mcginn, especially due to his high-pace playing style.

On June 30, 2011, McGinn signed a 1-year, $680,000 contract with the San Jose Sharks.
