|Assets:||Has great size, intimidation qualities and strong skating ability. Can be a shutdown defender and leader for his team. Will also drop the gloves if he has to.|
|Flaws:||Lacks high-end puck skills and offensive upside, so he's not going to be a natural point producer or power-play quarterback in the NHL. Must also work on his lateral mobility.|
|Career Potential:||Big, physical defenseman and leader with upside.|

Jarred Tinordi fights in Monday's defeat | 03/04/2014 8:35 AM
NewsJarred Tinordi has played in four games with Montreal following the Olympic break.
ImpactHe has been collecting some hits and blocks, but in Monday's loss to Los Angeles he dropped the gloves with Kings forward Kyle Clifford to try to create some energy. "After the Tinordi fight, once we started supporting each other, we had some chances but we couldn't take advantage," said Canadiens winger Brendan Gallagher. "(But) the first 10 minutes. they were coming through." Tinordi is a rugged defender, but he doesn't have any fantasy yet.

Jarred Tinordi has a mixed night | 09/22/2013 9:48 AM
NewsJarred Tinordi was very physical in Montreal's 3-1 preseason loss to Carolina.
ImpactThat wasn't universally a positive though as Tinordi gave the Hurricanes a 2-on-1 breakaway while Tinordi was delivering a big hit on Tuomo Ruutu. Carolina's Jeff Skinner capitalized on the opportunity. "He's got to read at the time when to throw those big hits because the big hits they're going to come," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said.

Tinordi a longshot to make Habs' roster | 09/07/2013 10:56 AM
NewsJarred Tinordi is a longshot to make the Canadiens out of training camp.
ImpactDespite Tinordi's obvious talent he will have a difficult time breaking into the top seven in 2013-14. With roster spots assured for P.K. Subban, Josh Gorges, Andrei Markov, Rafael Diaz, Francis Bouillon and Douglas Murray,and with Davis Drewiske in reserve, Tinodi and fellow youngster Nathan Beaulieu will likely be honing their skills in the AHL. Don't forget him, though. He, as well as Beaulieu, still make nice reserve roster picks.
Jarred Tinordi liking playoff hockey | 05/05/2013 8:30 AM
NewsRookie defenseman Jarred Tinordi is proving himself to be playoff-ready with his performance through two games.
ImpactTinordi has yet to contribute offensively, but he's playing to his strength as he registered four hits and three blocked shots in Friday's win over the Senators. "I think the playoffs are good for my style," said Tinordi. "I'm not out there to score goals. I'm realizing what kind of defenseman I am and I'm comfortable playing in defensive situations." Like his father, former NHLer Mark, Tinordi adds an element of toughness to the blue line that any team would welcome.

NewsJarred Tinordi has added some physicality to Montreal's lineup that has been absent since Alexei Emelin got injured.
Impact"His physical presence is tough to match. At 6-6, he's a big, physical guy," said teammate Josh Georges after Saturday's win over Toronto. "I think after being sent down and coming back, he has a little more bite in this game. He wants to be a guy who has an impact and tonight he stepped up on the PK and had some big hits." He registered four hits and a plus-2 rating against the Leafs and had an assist, with a plus-1 rating, versus Winnipeg last Thursday. He will probably get the nod to start the playoffs on Montreal's blueline.

No word yet on who will be removed from the lineup on Thursday. "I definitely didn't expect this, but it's definitely a good surprise," Tinordi said. Tinordi had 13 points in 67 AHL games this year, to go with one in the NHL.
