Canadiens Recall Defenceman Jarred Tinordi From Bulldogs


Defenceman has seven points in 35 games with ‘Dogs this season


MONTREAL, QUE. – Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs general manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Canadiens have recalled defenceman Jarred Tinordi from the Bulldogs.

Tinordi has split this season between the Canadiens and Bulldogs. In nine games with Montreal, he has recorded two assists and seven penalty minutes. In 35 games with Hamilton, he has recorded seven points (one goal, six assists) and 34 penalty minutes.

In 39 career National Hockey League regular season games with the Canadiens, the 6-6, 225-pound defenceman has recorded six assists and 49 penalty minutes. In 149 career American Hockey League regular season games with the Bulldogs, the Burnsville, Minn. native has recorded 29 points (six goals, 23 assists) and 175 penalty minutes.

The 22-year-old was selected by the Canadiens in the first round (22nd overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.


  1. MB must along with Coach Therrien give Tinordi the upmost chance to succeed in Montreal this time around.
    Tinordi needs time to gain confidence build his game to a point that he feels confident with his play & feels the Coach & staff have confidence in him as well.
    Canadiens do not want to lose Jared Tinordi via trade or simply other means they must take the big step & give him an all-out attempt @ earning a spot on the Habs everyday roster.
    I see a lot of good things in Tinordi & time has come to make or break Tinordi’s role with the Habs.
    Habs do not need to go out & find another D man they have it with Jared Tinordi plain & simple.

    • Excellent comment, Mark. Jarred Tinordi began this season well ahead of Nathan Beaulieu on the development path. Tinordi could have been a solid contributor at this stage of the season had he remained in Montreal since the start of the season. Jarred has nothing more to learn at the AHL level. Being steering into a fighting role and letting that reputation spread will only hurt his future. I am discouraged that I haven’t seen more teaching and confidence building from JJ Daigneault. Beaulieu was struggling mightily in his own zone looking completely lost until Gonchar arrived and became a mentor. Let’s hope that Tinordi gets the same treatment.
