RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Tinordi made his NHL debut for Montreal during the 2012-13 season, finishing off the regular season and playing in all five of the team's playoff games against Ottawa. He held his own at the NHL level and gave us a glimpse into Montreal's blueline for years to come. He's never been a big offensive star on defense, so temper any expectations of that. At 6-7, he overpowers opponents and protects the area around the net and in the corners. Alexei Emelin's knee injury will keep him off the opening night roster, so there's a spot for Tinordi when the Habs kick off the season. He'll likely split time as a sixth or seventh defenseman.
Tinordi, the Canadiens' first-round draft pick in the 2010 draft, made the jump from the United States U-18 team to the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, after turning down a scholarship to Notre Dame. The 19-year-old is an imposing figure on the blue line, standing 6-6 and overpowering forwards, though he could stand to add some bulk. He's still learning the offensive side of the position -- Tinordi will play on the power play for London this year -- but he's all business on the defensive side.
