Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced on Thursday morning that the club has called up defenceman Jarred Tinordi from the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs.
Tinordi, a 21-year-old who was selected by the Canadiens in the first round (22nd overall) at the 2010 NHL entry draft, played 55 games with the Bulldogs this season, posting 2-9-11 totals to go along with 51 penalty minutes. The 6-foot-6, 218-pounder will add size to the Canadiens’ blue line while wearing No. 42.
After beating the Ottawa Senators 4-3 in a shootout Wednesday night at the Bell Centre, the Canadiens announced that Greg Pateryn was being returned to the Bulldogs. Pateryn played three games with the Canadiens after being recalled from Hamilton on March 7.
The Canadiens were given the day off Thursday and will be back on the ice Friday at 11 a.m. in Brossard as they prepare to visit the New Jersey Devils Saturday night.
