NEW YORK, July 28, 2021 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Chris Drury announced today that the team has agreed to terms with free agent defenseman Jarred Tinordi on a two-year contract.

Tinordi, 29, split this past season between the Nashville Predators and Boston Bruins, registering one assist and 11 penalty minutes in 21 games. He registered 56 hits and 30 blocked shots in the 21 games he played in 2020-21. Tinordi skated in his 100th career NHL game on April 13, 2021 vs. Buffalo. He also skated in four games with the Bruins during the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The 6-6, 205-pounder has skated in 102 career NHL games over parts of six seasons (2012-13 – 2015-16; 2019-20 – 2020-21) with Montreal, Arizona, Nashville, and Boston, registering one goal and 11 assists for 12 points, along with 123 penalty minutes. Tinordi has recorded at least nine hits per 60 minutes of ice time in each of the last two seasons. He has served as a captain at several levels throughout his hockey career, including with the United States’ gold medal-winning team at the 2010 IIHF U18 World Championship, the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), and most recently with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL) in 2018-19 and 2019-20.
