An NHL lockout means that some of the youngsters ready to shine are relegated to playing elsewhere. That doesn't mean they aren't growing and developing into the stars of tomorrow.
We at CBCSports.ca will be keeping an eye on the next generation of NHL stars on Canada's seven clubs, whether they're working on the "farm" in the AHL or honing their game overseas, waiting for the end of the lockout.
We'll periodically check in with these players throughout the 2012-13 season, no matter what league they'll be lacing up their skates in. In this edition, we take a peek at the Montreal Canadiens hulking young defenceman, Jarred Tinordi.
Jarred Tinordi Age/ Birthplace: 20, Millersville, MD, USA Position: D NHL club/draft position: Montreal, 22nd overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft NHL GP: 0 Current team: Hamilton Bulldogs Stats on current team: 3GP, 0G, 1A, -2, 0 PIM
How he will fit in with his NHL club: His pedigree is two-fold - the son of former NHLer Mark Tinordi, the younger Tinordi also has a good amount of experience playing in high-pressure situations. He captained his London Knights to an OHL championship (not to mention racking up a +39 rating), then to the Memorial Cup final. On the international stage, Tinordi also helped the U.S. win U-18 gold in 2010.
The youngster is already a scary sight for opposing forwards -- 6-foot-6, 218 lbs., with plenty of growing left and 200 minutes in penalties in 111 games with the Knights.
Despite the fact that the Habs traded away Ryan McDonagh in the Scott Gomez deal, the drafting of Tinordi does a good job of making Montreal fans forget about that.
