The biggest moment of Jarred Tinordi's hockey life wasn't announced to him. He was left to figure it out on his own.
When the Montreal Canadiens cut center Gabriel Dumont and defenseman Nathan Beaulieu following their final preseason game Thursday night, Tinordi was able to conclude that he had achieved a lifelong dream.
"They didn't mention anything to me, but I saw the cuts that were made and I didn't have a meeting, so it was kind of clear that I was sticking around for a little while at least," Tinordi said. "It was obviously a good feeling, I called my parents right away."
