The Philadelphia Flyers sent Tye McGinn, the team's top goal-scorer this season, down to Adirondack of the AHL, the Flyers announced on Friday.
McGinn, 23, has three goals in just four games played. That may not seem like a lot, but the Flyers have scored just 13 goals all season.
McGinn was sent to the minors to make room for forward Scott Hartnell, who will return on Saturday after missing the past four games with an upper-body injury.
The Flyers chose to keep rookie Michael Raffl, who skated on the club's top line Thursday.
McGinn failed to record a shot in his last two games while playing on a line with Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek.
