Boston Bruins Claim Defenseman Jarred Tinordi Off Waivers


The Bruins added depth to the blue line on Saturday when the team claimed defenseman Jarred Tinordi off waivers from the Predators.  The depth defenseman appeared in seven games for Nashville this season and was mostly utilized on the penalty kill.

Tinordi was waived by the Predators yesterday after being designated as a healthy scratch the last three games.  The 29-year-old defenseman will provide depth to the Bruins defensive corps after losing Jeremy Lauzon with a broken hand.  Lauzon suffered the injury in Lake Tahoe when the Bruins played the Flyers.

The former Predators defenseman comes to the Bruins and adds size to the blue line.  Tinordi has a similar build to current Bruin Kevan Miller.  He missed his first game of the season on Sunday and hasn't felt great following practice on Wednesday according to coach Bruce Cassidy.
Matt Grzelcyk will make the trip to New York this weekend, he also has been beat up the last week.  The Bruins defensive unit is battling through their share of injuries.  Other players have stepped up and filled the void but the Bruins will need to add depth to weather the storm.

The newly claimed defenseman will not replace the presence of Lauzon in the lineup.  Tinordi will be able to provide depth for the Bruins for the next few weeks while Lauzon is re-evaluated for his injury.  The injury comes at a bad time for Lauzon, who has been filling the void left behind Torey Krug.
