To say that forward Hugh McGing, the newest member of the Blues’ organization, plays bigger than his size would be understatement.

“He’s 5-9 and plays like he’s 9-5,” said Andy Murray, McGing’s coach at Western Michigan University.

McGing, who has agreed to a two-year entry-level contract with the Blues, has heard that one before.

“That’s his favorite saying about me,” McGing said, laughing.
