Tinordi worked on the Bruins' third defensive pairing along with Connor Clifton at Tuesday's practice.
Tinordi, who was claimed off waivers by the Bruins on Saturday, is thus in line to make his debut with the team Wednesday night against the Capitals. The 29-year-old didn't record a point in seven games for the Predators this season, but the 6-foot-6, 205-pounder will add some needed size and physicality to a Boston blue line corps that's currently missing Kevan Miller (knee) and Jeremy Lauzon (hand).
Tinordi was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Sunday, CBS Sports reports.
Boston snagged Tinordi off waivers Saturday, as the team's blue line has been ravaged by injuries. Once the 29-year-old clears protocols, he should be ready to debut with the Bruins. He'll be questionable for Wednesday's game against the Capitals.
Tinordi was claimed off waivers by the Bruins on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Tinordi has played seven games for the Predators this season, averaging 16:34 of ice time and producing no points. The 29-year-old will add depth on Bruins' blue line, specifically on the left side because Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) and Jeremy Lauzon (hand) -- both left-handed shots -- are on injured reserve.
Tinordi was waived by Nashville on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Tinordi has sat as a healthy scratch for the Predators' last three contests, so this news doesn't come as a surprise. He'll likely head to Nashville's taxi squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Tinordi skated a season-high 19:51 in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Red Wings. He dished out three hits and blocked four shots, but failed to register a point for the sixth time this season.
The 28-year old blueliner has been a healthy scratch more often than not this season, but with Mattias Ekholm currently on the shelf with an undisclosed injury, the best you can say about Tinordi is he's finally seeing some semi-regular ice time. Otherwise, given his lack of offensive production, he doesn't really move the fantasy needle in most formats.
Tinordi posted an assist and two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.
Tinordi earned the secondary helper on Colton Sissons' first-period tally. Technically, it's been a career year for Tinordi -- he has five points in 22 contests. The 28-year-old is mostly a third-pairing defenseman. He's added 62 hits, 27 blocked shots and 32 PIM this year, which probably won't interest fantasy owners.
Tinordi skated just 15:14 Saturday against the Blue Jackets, and failed to register a point for the 10th time in 13 games since being recalled from AHL Milwaukee in late January.
The good news is, Tinordi is seeing regular minutes for the Preds these days, essentially taking Matt Irwin's spot on the team's third defensive unit. However, providing offense is still not really in his job description as a bottom-pairing defender, making him completely irrelevant from a fantasy perspective.
Tinordi scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Capitals.
The towering blueliner got his first goal in an NHL uniform only days after being called up from AHL Milwaukee. Don't get used to these nights, though. In eight games, Tinordi has only managed a goal and an assist, on-brand for the offensively-challenged rearguard. Mind you, he's not shy to throw his body around, as Tinordi dished out eight hits, a game high, in the win.
Tinordi was recalled by the Predators from AHL Milwaukee on Sunday.
Tinordi spent the All-Star break with the Admirals for some extra ice time, collecting an assist in four games. Now back at the NHL level, the 27-year-old has one point in seven games, and his next chance to draw into the lineup will be Monday's game against Toronto.
Tinordi was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Friday.
Tinordi is among three players sent to the Admirals with just one game remaining on the schedule prior to a week-long break. He should continue to see action with the team's affiliate before potentially rejoining the top club ahead of the Jan. 27 clash with the Maple Leafs.
Tinordi has zero points, five PIM and 21 hits in five games since being recalled from AHL Milwaukee in late December.
With just six points in 58 NHL games over five seasons, the 27-year-old Tinordi is a fringe player at best and shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy roster. In the meantime, with fellow blueliners Ryan Ellis and Dante Fabbro both out with upper-body injuries, Tinordi should continue to see steady minutes for the time being.
Tinordi was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Friday.
Tinordi hasn't seen action at the top level since he logged a combined 10 games with Montreal and Arizona back in the 2015-16 season. There's little reason to get excited about him from a fantasy perspective given his five points through 28 AHL games this season and minimal production in previous stints at the top level.
Tinordi has inked a two-year, two-way contract with the Predators, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
The deal is worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $300,000 at the AHL level, but the latter number will likely be more relevant to Tinordi's future. The 26-year-old hasn't played in the NHL since the 2015-16 season, and with the depth Nashville has on defense that seems unlikely to change. Tinordi collected 22 points in 75 games last season with the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals.
Tinordi signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Predators on Sunday.
The deal is worth $650,000 at the NHL level and $325,000 at the AHL level, but the latter number will likely be more relevant to Tinordi's future. The 26-year-old hasn't played in the NHL since the 2015-16 season, and with the depth Nashville has on defense that seems unlikely to change.
Tinordi was waived by the Penguins on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic Toronto reports.
Tinordi has appeared in 53 contests -- primarily with the Canadiens -- but is still looking for his first NHL goal. Unfortunately for the defenseman, he will have to wait a little longer, as he'll start the season in the minors with the Baby Pens. Given Pittsburgh's depth on the blue line, it would take a significant number of injuries for the 25-year-old to crack the game-day lineup, so look for him to spend the 2017-18 campaign in the minors.
Tinordi inked a one-year, two-way deal with Pittsburgh on Saturday worth $650,000.
Tinordi -- who played with Olli Maatta in juniors -- spent the entire 2016-17 season in the minors with AHL Tucson. It seems likely the former first-round pick will start the year with the Baby Pens, but considering all the injuries PIttsburgh dealt with last year on its blue line, adding Tinordi will help provide some much needed depth.
Tinordi (suspension) was assigned to AHL Tucson on Saturday.
Tinordi, suspended for the first 20 games of the NHL season due to a failed drug test, was placed on waivers Friday and will now head to the Coyotes' minor league affiliate on assignment. Given the blueliner has only played 53 games in his four-year NHL career, he offers little fantasy value even if he does get recalled after his suspension.
Tinordi was waived by the Coyotes on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of the Montreal Journal reports.
The defenseman was suspended for the first 20 games of the year due to a failed drug test, so he hasn't yet hit the ice this season. Tinordi hasn't had much success in his NHL career (six points in 53 games over four seasons), so it wouldn't be surprising to see him go unclaimed -- especially given his suspension.
Tinordi has been suspended for 20 games for violating the NHL's Performance-Enhancing Substances Program.
This announcement shouldn't have much impact on the fantasy front, as the blueliner hasn't recorded a point in 10 NHL games between two franchises this season. The suspension will put an end to his 2015-16 campaign (barring a reduced sentence by appeal) and could wind up costing him some opportunities entering the offseason as a free agent.
Tinordi (lower body) took part in line rushes during pregame warmups, indicating he will play Friday against the Ducks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Tinordi, who hasn't registered a point in three games with the Yotes this season, is expected to skate alongside Zbynek Michalek on Arizona's second pairing in Friday's contest.
