Habs Trade Up to Pick Hulking Defenseman Jarred Tinordi at 22nd Overall

Just a quick note that the Habs traded up from their 27th overall spot in the first round to select hulking 6'6" Jarred Tinordi, 22nd overall.

TSN's Bob Mckenzie says:
"Bob McKenzie: The son of former NHL defenceman Mark Tinordi is an absolute physical beast, almost 6-foot-6 and still filling out a frame that is more than 200 pounds. He blew scouts away with physical testing at the Combine. He’s naturally aggressive, a heavy hitter, with outstanding leadership and character, as evidenced by his captaincy on what may be the best U.S. U-18 team ever. Tinordi will attend Notre Dame in the fall."

Here is the Hockey's Future profile on Jarred Tinordi:

This gigantic 18 year old shutdown defenseman brings leadership, toughness and size with a mean streak. He looks like he will be an excellent addition on the Habs back end for years to come.
