Tinordi, 29, has only played in 7 games this season for the Blueshirts. He has 1 goal and 7 penalty minutes with a -5 rating.

The rugged defenseman signed a two-year deal this summer with an AAV of $900K. He was assigned to a conditioning with the Wolf Pack earlier this season. In those five games with Hartford, Tinordi registered an assist, a +1 rating, and two shots.

Tinordi has struggled with limited playing time this season and is considered the team’s 8th defenseman behind Libor Hajek.

He was originally drafted 22nd overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Last season, he skated in 21 NHL games with the Nashville Predators (7) and Boston Bruins (14). He also appeared in four Stanley Cup Playoff games with the Bruins in 2021.
