Adam Tambellini Leaves North Dakota for Calgary of WHL

Matt Christians

The freshman forward leaves North Dakota midway through his first year.

North Dakota freshman forward Adam Tambellini has left the program according to a Tweet from UND sports information director Jayson Hajdu:

Tambellini had played in 16 games for North Dakota, tallying two goals and two assists for four points in that time. Tambellini was a third round selection of the New York Rangers in last year's NHL Draft.  The son of former NHL executive Steve Tambellini, Adam was a talented player, but coming into NCAA hockey at an extremely skinny 168 lbs. kept him from making a more immediate impact at the college level.

Tambellini''s next step will be to play for the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL, where he should have more success playing against younger, less physically-developed talent.
