The former Hawk would have wiped 2015 from the memory bank already after a nightmare season of soft-tissue injuries saw him play just nine games. Calf and hamstring problems kept the speedy midfielder to just three games after round nine – which was his 150th senior game – and his absence robbed the Swans of one of their most influential runners. Returned for the side’s two finals and kept the dangerous Brent Harvey quiet in the semi-final loss to North Melbourne. McGlynn will be like a recruit if he can get his body right this year.

Draft history: 2006 Rookie Draft selection (Hawthorn) No. 55 overall; 2006 rookie elevation (Hawthorn); 2009 NAB AFL Draft traded by Hawthorn for No. 46 (Ben Stratton) and No. 70
(Matthew Suckling).
