According to Sportsnet Jarred Tinordi, the Habs 22nd overall pick in the 2010 NHL draft will be playing for the London Knights in the OHL. They report an official announcement should come within days.
Although there is currently some debate on which road is better suited for a young player’s development, Major Junior vs NCAA, I believe having Tinordi in a situation where he plays many more games will only be good for his development.
I was happy to hear about Louis Leblanc playing in the “Q”… which means I’ll likely skip out to watch him play. I’m equally happy to hear that Jarred will be playing in the OHL under Dale Hunter. Will be easier for some of us to catch a glimpse of him and keep track of his developmental years.
I’m quite pleased at this announcement. Should be noted that Dale Hunter played with Jarred’s father and has been a family friend for years. So Tinordi will have familiarity with his new coach.
