1st Round (22nd Overall) – 2010 / Montreal


The Canadiens selected Jarred Tinordi with their first round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. After being drafted, he spent two seasons with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. He also represented the United States at the IIHF World Juniors.

In 2012-13, Tinordi saw his first National Hockey League action, playing in eight games with the Habs and recorded two assists in the process. But for the most part that season, he was in a Bulldogs jersey playing 67 games in Hamilton for his professional rookie year. In the 2013-14 season, he saw a little more time with the Canadiens; playing 22 games. Once again, he recorded two assists in the time frame and played in Hamilton for 47 games. Finally, most recently, he played 13 regular season games and 44 in Hamilton. Following the trend of the previous two seasons, Tinordi was on the stat sheet twice for assists to bring the defenceman’s career point total to 6 in 43 games. He has seen some playoff action, playing in 5 Montreal playoff games in his introduction year in 2013. As mentioned in the press release, Tinordi had 20 blocked shots and 20 hits in his 2014-15 NHL campaign.

Interesting to note from the previously mentioned traffic at defence, Tinordi would be required to clear waivers to be sent down which is not something Bergevin and management can expect. One would assume that the improving, young defender would be claimed before landing in St. John’s, so that makes training camp all the more important in order to earn a spot in Montreal this season.

And while the injuries and bad calls are valid excuses for their current losing streak, there are plenty of errors […]
