More trades! And somehow, Montreal fans were audible when the trade was announced. In Los Angeles. Their team acquired the 22nd pick and the 113th pick from the Coyotes for the 27th pick and the 57th pick
Coyotes send 22nd and 113th to Montreal for 27th and 57th pick.
With that 22nd pick, the Canadiens selected an American, Jarred Tinordi, from the US National Team Development Program. Our Sabres blog, Die By The Blade, profiled Tinordi recently.
Tinordi is a towering presence on the ice. He is a physical stay-at-home defenseman that could become a top-four defenseman if he develops his game. He skates well for a big man and has been blessed with some very good mobility that allows him to make some athletic plays.
He is a natural born leader, which is evident by him being the captain of the USNTDP U-18 team this season and the U-17 team the second half of last season. His leadership will help him develop into an everyday NHL player.
The name Tinordi will sound familiar to many of you because his father Mark Tinordi was a stay-at-home defenseman with four different NHL teams, including the Washington Capitals when they went to the Cup Finals in 1988.
