Habs call up ’10 first-rounder Tinordi

The Montreal Canadiens bolstered their blueline on Thursday by recalling Jarred Tinordi from AHL Hamilton.

Tinordi, 21, was Montreal’s first-round pick (22nd overall) at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

The son of former Minnesota North Stars captain Mark Tinordi, Jarred’s in his first season at the professional level, having spent the last two years playing for Dale and Mark Hunter with the OHL’s London Knights.

In 55 games with Hamilton this season, Tinordi’s notched 2G-9A-11PTS and 51 penalty minutes.

It’s possible he could make his NHL debut on Saturday when the Habs travel to New Jersey to take on the Devils, as Montreal currently has some spots open on its blueline.

Raphael Diaz (concussion) and Yannick Weber (knee) are on IR and it seems almost everybody is ahead of blueliner Tomas Kaberle in the pecking order these days — that includes Greg Pateryn, who drew into the last three games ahead of Kaberle before being sent back to Hamilton on Wednesday.

    My ticket says the Canadiens play the Devils on Saturday, Halford.

    Random fact. He’s the first player from suburban Annapolis to make it to the NHL, although he’s the kid of a former Capital and spent his formative years there because the Caps used to practice at Piney Orchard. Wish the Caps were still there, so guys like Ovechkin, Backstrom, etc. could learn to fight through adversity much younger.

    He must have passed the embellishment course.

      U must be a Bruins fan….. and no, Marchand is not a master diver!

        You watch any Bruins games this year buddy?

    • cweez2 - Mar 14, 2013 at 1:57 PM

      or, he knows what to do to hold on to a 3rd period lead

    … just when they play the HABS.. can’t handle any more than that!

    • itsallniceonice - Mar 14, 2013 at 2:17 PM

      Maybe you should stick to talking about things you know about then instead of running your mouth on a few youtube clips. You look stupid. We don’t want another Habsman here.

      Anyways keep the hate on Marchand going, I love it. If he keeps it up you’ll be hearing his name for a long time and it won’t be for all the reasons you Habs fans like to parrot.

      • tomhabsforlife - Mar 14, 2013 at 3:29 PM

        True, we will keep hearing his name because of his love of self-glorification in social media or his love of urinating in public!

      • valoisvipers - Mar 14, 2013 at 3:39 PM

        Yeah the Bruins and the rest of the league had to put up with Claude Lemieux for years so that makes Marchand their payback.
        My favorite was Buffalo’s Matthew Barnaby, had a face that everyone wanted to swat, priceless.

    Speaking of parroting, nice “embellishment” comment, Bruins fan. Julien did well to distract everyone from the Bruins loss to Habs with empty, hypocritical comments. We’re a faster team, and more highly skilled, so we draw more penalties from teams that can’t keep up. And yeah, I’ve been watching the games. B’s are good this year, but the Habs are the class of the East. Unless Chara can pull another stanchion out of his ass, y’all are gonna have no answer in the playoffs. Looking forward to Tinordi. He’s just about ready to make the jump, if not this season then next.

    You do have a great skating team. Why is it then, that they fall down so easily?

  7. kanuckinnyc - Mar 14, 2013 at 10:26 PM

    I wonder why Pateryn didn’t stay. Looks like he did a decent job the few shifts he was on. Why not bring Tinordi right away?

  8. kanuckinnyc - Mar 14, 2013 at 10:28 PM

    I guess Pateryn is staying?
