Adam Tambellini (2013 third round pick) has left the University of North Dakota to join the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL after the Hitmen acquired his rights from the Portland Winterhawks.
He had two goals and two assists in 16 games for UND and he is expected to join Calgary on their coming road trip.
The Hitmen GM said, “we are very excited to add a top forward to our group. Adam possesses size, skating and a scoring touch that will add terrific depth to our lineup. It is not easy to give up a first round draft pick, however when you acquire a talent like Adam we felt the price was warranted.”
