Tinordi, a first-round draft pick by Montreal in 2010, has played just three games for the Canadiens this season, posting zero points and a minus-3 rating. In six contests with AHL St. John’s this season, he has two assists.
The defenceman was pulled off the team’s plane Friday and informed of the news.
Scott, a 6-foot-8 enforcer, has one assist in 11 games with the Coyotes this season.
Scott was among four NHL players voted by fans to captain a divisional squad at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game in Nashville later this month. His candidacy was bolstered by an enthusiastic social media effort. Now that Scott is switching conferences, the Coyotes are currently without a representative at the All-Star Game and the Pacific Division lacks a captain.
Scott will join the AHL’s St. John’s Ice Caps, while Bartley has been recalled to the NHL team.
The undrafted Fournier, a right wing, has seven points in 24 games with the AHL IceCaps this season and has yet to crack the NHL.
The 24-year-old Elliott, a Vancouver native, has two goals and four assists in 19 games with Arizona this season.
