Tinordi was born in Burnsville, Minnesota while his father, Mark was a member of the Minnesota North Stars, and briefly lived in Plano, Texas when the franchise became known as the Dallas Stars. The family eventually settled in the Washington, D.C. area suburb of Millersville, Maryland, when Mark was traded to the Washington Capitals. As a youth, he played in the 2004 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with the Washington Little Capitals minor ice hockey team. He attended Severna Park Middle School and played for Severna Park High School, for the 2006-2007 season only. He later served as captain of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program, and attended Ann Arbor Pioneer High School.
Tinordi was committed to University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) for the 2010–11 season. On August 10, 2010 it was announced that Tinordi would play for the London Knights of the OHL for the 2010–11 season, forgoing his NCAA eligibility.
On March 16, 2013, he played his first NHL game against the New Jersey Devils, scoring his first NHL career point when his shot was deflected behind Johan Hedberg by Tomas Plekanec at 06:49 in the third period. The Canadiens would go on to win the game 2-1.
In the 2015–16 season, Tinordi, no longer waiver-exempt, made the Canadiens roster out of camp as a defenseman. With the Canadiens producing the league's best start to the season, Tinordi failed to play in a game in the opening months of the season. On November 26, 2015, he was assigned to new AHL affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps, on a conditioning stint appearing in 6 games. In his return to the Canadiens, Tinordi played in only three games in the following two months then on January 15, 2016, was traded to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Victor Bartley and John Scott.
On March 9, 2016, the NHL announced that they had suspended Tinordi for 20 games, without pay, for violating the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. In a statement released by the NHLPA, Tinordi stated: "I did not knowingly take a banned substance. I understand, however, that I am responsible for what enters my body as a professional athlete and I accept the suspension. I will work hard towards my return to the ice and will learn from this frustrating setback." The Arizona Coyotes subsequently announced their full support of both the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program and Tinordi.
In the following 2016–17 season, upon serving his suspension Tinordi was placed on waivers by the Arizona Coyotes on October 21, 2016, and sent to the team's AHL affiliate Tucson Roadrunners the next day. He scored the first Roadrunners goal in their home debut on October 28. He played out the entirety of the season with the Roadrunners, appearing in 64 games registering 11 points.
On July 1, 2017, Tinordi signed a one-year, two-way contract with the reigning Stanley Cup champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins. Tinordi was assigned by Pittsburgh to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for the duration of the 2017–18 season. As a key presence on the blueline, Tinordi established new professional highs with 5 goals and 21 points in 62 games.
Tinordi left the Penguins in the off-season as a free agent to sign a one-year, two-way contract with the Nashville Predators on July 1, 2018. Prior to the start of the 2018-19 season, Tinordi was named captain of the Predators' American League affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals. He spent the entirety of the season with the Admirals, recording eight goals and 22 points in 75 games.
On May 29, 2019, the Predators re-signed Tinordi to a two-year, two-way contract extension. During the 2019–20 season with the Predators, on January 29, 2020, Tinordi recorded his first career NHL goal against the Washington Capitals.
During the 2020–21 season, after appearing in seven games with the Predators on February 27, 2021, Tinordi was claimed off waivers by the Boston Bruins. He played out the remainder of his contract with the Bruins, registering 1 assist through 14 regular season games. On March 16, 2021, Tinordi was involved in a collision with Penguins forward Brandon Tanev. Tanev was given a 5 minute major penalty and a game misconduct for Boarding. Tinordi did not return to the game. In the postseason, he made four appearances with the Bruins.
