Montreal had a surplus of bodies on defense -- too many cooks, if you will -- following yesterday’s Sergei Gonchar-for-Travis Moen trade so, on Wednesday, it sent Jarred Tinordi down to AHL Hamilton.

Tinordi, the club’s first-round pick (22nd overall) at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has appeared in nine games this season, notching two assists while averaging just over 12 minutes per night.

The 6-foot-6, 227-pounder was sent to Hamilton while another of Montreal’s young blueliners, Nathan Beaulieu, remained with the club; as a result, the Habs will now carry Gonchar, Beaulieu, P.K. Subban, Andrei Markov, Alexei Emelin, Mike Weaver and Tom Gilbert as their seven defensemen.
