He was a first round draft choice because of his potential physical presence. In his own era, father Mark was one of the NHL’s toughest defensemen and one who could handle himself in a scrap. The logical expectation would be that Jarred become a chip off the old block. And he tried to be. But Tinordi is a terrible fighter; so bad that there is the potential of being seriously hurt if he continues to make it part of his game.
