I thought this one was worth mentioning in light of the recent (perceived) exodus of Michigan commits to the CHL. So, in an effort to show that it's not just a Michigan problem, as has been mentioned before, I give you:
Montreal Canadiens first-round pick Jarred Tinordi is taking the more common route to the National Hockey League.
The London Free Press reports that the 18-year-old defenceman has chosen to play with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League next season, instead of joining Notre Dame.
With the move to the OHL, Tinordi will play a longer schedule and can attend the Canadiens' training camps. College players are not allowed to go to camps until they have left school and signed with their NHL team.
I really debated posting this because it's not Michigan-related at all (yes, I know, ensue "negging"), but please forgive me, as I thought that this was at least marginally newsworthy, especially in the slow period for hockey news.
